So, I always see this powerwalker in the mornings, I call her "The Zombie" because she never talks to me or interacts with me, she can't even force a smile!

The Zombie really does power walk, she's practically at my heels, almost round my whole route!

This morning, I decided to play a little game, (inside my head - obviously), I pretended The Zombie WAS ACTUALLY a zombie, she was the first of a horde, all following to chew on my bones!

It was fun to begin with, then I lost The Zombie 🙀 where did she go.....

She popped up from an alleyway between an estate! I kid you not - I actually squealed at her!

I'm going to have to change my route or the time I go out🙈

Am glad someone else creates these characters, I thought it was just me. I've lost my Mr 118 maybe the Zombie got him....

Love it! Made me laugh sitting on the train on the way to work. Who needs games like "zombie run"?

You see I really want to see her now... I have this image of her in my head... maybe I could do a sketch of her, like I did the sketch of one of the forum friends gremlins?

Ha ha 😃😃😃. Great fun! What a brilliant distraction 😃

I would make it my plan to get her to react to you. Smile next time you see her , then a smile and a hi, and ratchet it up on the cheesey grin scale . Break that woman down You'll have her passing the time of day real,

soon 😃
