Zombie Attack!

As a rule, I don't watch zombie movies. The only zombie movie I've seen was Shaun of the Dead and as that was a parody of other zombie movies, the bulk of the movie was lost on me. Enjoyable nonetheless as it introduced me Nick Frost, whom I adore. But this entry isn't about Nick Frost, nor zombie movies. It's about what happened to me last night, in a dream.

I was in STL and there was a zombie outbreak. I don't know why, but as one can imagine, this caused considerable panic throughout the city. I had with me drax0r and catttitude. We were trying to evacuate galinda822. It was dusk and the streets were littered with zombies, both reanimated and recently eradicated. We tried to escape the city in a vehicle, but not only were the highways clogged with people trying to flee, but also with people who "turned" as they were driving. These lethal zombie-drivers were using their vehicles to run down pedestrians and other cars on freeway. Soon, the roads out of town were blocked with carnage and wreckage. As it was getting darker, drax0r and I lead my wife, children, and galinda to safety by way of an "Underground Railroad" of sorts. Decent folk who set up trapdoors and hiding places within the confines of their homes to help people out of the city as they stayed back and defended their home with munitions. Weird.

Maybe, subconciously of course, you want to rescue me from the mind numbing, dead end position I'm in now working with these brain dead people here and move me down to Texas with all of you where I'll be safe?

Do you enjoy horror at all? Elizabeth and I loved Grindhouse and have been known to go on horror binges.

Not a fan of horror. When we first arrived in STL, galinda822 introduced us to the Scream trilogy and that was a blast. My understanding is those are not indicative of the genre as a whole.

Meep meep.

Zombie films are retarded... I don't watch them.

Logic dictates there is a rather large group out there who enjoys them enough that its profitable to keep making them year after year after year.

I'm just not one of those people.

Me either.

Or Horror movies either. I prefer not to be scared out of my socks and to have nightmares for literal years...

Why do the children keep saying "retarded?" Our 7 year old says that too.

"Retarded" is used by children why?

I'm not sure. It's just something that has been in the list of things which younger people say when referring to something which is stupid, idiotic, beyond reason, illogical or otherwise just plain weird.

Not sure if that answered your question but I at least tried right? :-)

Seriously though; its been in circulation as a word which is to be used in the manner I described since I was in kindergarten. I clearly recall kids saying it then... and I'm also willing to bet that if you ask SchypdurX about it he will also remember at an early age how "retarded" was used to describe something weird or stupid.
