That's what has happened over the past week or so. I got caught up in a TV show. A thrilling, suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat TV show called The Walking Dead on AMC. It's a riveting look at what life might be like if there was ever a zombie apocalypse. It's very realistic.
I never used to be a fan of zombie shows. Until a couple of years ago when I watched the movie Zombieland with Woody Harrelson and the guy from the movie about facebook. Zombieland is more of a happy-go-lucky look at a zombie apocalypse. The Walking Dead is not nearly as happy-go-lucky. In fact, it would probably be better described as frightening-go-scaredy. But, it's even more riveting than Zombieland, and I can't get enough of it.
I know that my brain will seize up when I let myself get sucked into a TV show. It always does. I tried not to let myself watch The Walking Dead, but it was to no avail. I caught a glimpse of it while I was supposed to be doing other things, and I was instantly hooked. The Wife and I have been watching at least a couple of episodes a night for the past week or so. I've got it bad.

In real life, my brain has become so filled with zombies that I'm surprised I remember how to tie my shoe. It's a miracle I remember to feed myself. And who knows what the kids have been up to for the past week. I'm sure they'll be fine until we finish watching season 2.
