In tonight's episode of Running with the Zombies, fiction was on par with truth. The "plot" of the run was that the runner was doing the training workout near a chained up zombie in order to determine how the zombie reacted to different movements. Because... science!
In the best practices of experimental science everywhere (foreshadowed by three disclaimers that of course the zombie was secured well enough!), the zombie got loose and gave chase. There was, naturally, no backup containment feature. OSHA would not approve! No wonder these people lose their staff to the zombies on a regular basis.
Anyhow, I survived and also didn't step in the two inches of cold water sitting at the bottom of the handicap ramp, so win-win.
In slightly more relevant news, I called my petsitter today and the little dog made it to the top of the waiting list for boarding, so Christmas vacation is back on. I am now free to join the hordes of people snarling up traffic in Los Angeles. It's enough to make me giggle (like a crazy person who stopped taking their meds).
