The Truth About Zombies

"You didn't like Shaun of the Dead? Really?" Abby asked Dean incredulously. Her voice raised in pitch so that the bar patrons in the surrounding booths turned to look at her oddly.

Dean hunched down in his seat, ears reddening. Then he shot dirty looks at the other patrons. Until at length, they turned back to their own business.

"It's no big deal, Abby. Jeez," he said.

"Sorry, it just surprised me," Abby said. "You've liked every other movie we talked about. I know sometimes British humor can be tough to get but I seriously laughed until I almost peed my pants."

Dean took a swig of his beer before chuckling, "Those two yahoos could never face down a real zombie army."

"But it's supposed to be funny. I don't think they were going for realism." Abby laughed

"I just prefer 28 Days Later. Lots of gore and those mothers were vicious."

"So, is that what zombies are really like." Abby prodded as she leaned forward placing her elbows on the table.

Dean shook his head as his eyes took on the far-away look of remembrance. "No, they aren't like anything in the movies."

"You mean they don't want to eat your brains." Abby giggled.

"Nope." Dean smirked. "They can still think pretty logically and they can talk but I never actually saw one eat anyone's brains. Still, being reanimated kinda unhinges them."

"Wow, they can talk. That's different." As Abby thought about this, her face scrunched up in concentration. "What do they talk about?"

Dean shrugged. "Killing mostly."

"Of course," Abby laughed. "Guess my little run-of-the-mill haunting was really mundane compared to some of the things you've encountered."

"Well, they can't all be zombies." Dean snickered.

"Yeah, zombies are cool." She nodded. Under the cover of taking a drink, she covertly studied Dean over the lip of her mug.

He returned her gaze with a lecherous grin. "What?" Dean prompted suggestively.

Ignoring his flirtation, Abby responded. "I just can't believe you didn't like Shaun of the Dead."

Dean rolled his eyes. "Okay. I didn't hate everything. I really liked their taste in bars."
