So it is no secret that I LOVE zombies. I even have a sticker on the back of my minivan that says, I LOVE ZOMBIES (oh, yeah) and a set of family stickers that portrays my entire family, including the dog, as zombies that says, WE ATE YOUR STICK FAMILY (for those of you who don't live in Utah, putting vinyl family stickers on your car is a big thing. I hate it. So dumb. But the zombie stickers called to me).
Anyway, I've seen these zombie shoes online for like forever and would LOVE to own a pair. So cool, but I could never wrap my mind around the idea of where in the world would I ever get a chance to wear them. Church? School? Grocery shopping? Well, the other day I had to travel into SLC to the state PTA office (Parent, Teacher, Association, because guess what crazy lady decided to say yes to being PTA president at her kids school this year? Yeah, me).
I went in to pick up supplies and this cute little receptionist girl stood up to go get my things and low and behold--ZOMBIE HIGH HEELS. These very ones. So cool.
So of course I had to comment, "I love your high heels. I so want a pair." Then I told her about how I love zombies and how I've written a zombie western series. And guess what? She's a writer of zombie stories as well. Her name is Candace Gleave (click on her name to check her out) and she has several zombie short stories out there. Who would've guessed that it be PTA moms and receptionists IN UTAH no less, writing about zombies? We Utah PTA women are a crazy bunch :)
I totally should've worn my zombie necklace (I totally own this) to the WALK YOUR KIDS TO SCHOOL MORNING PTA BREAKFAST this morning. Don't you think? Now, I'm off to get me a pair of zombie shoes. A must have for any good Utah Mom PTA zombie writer.
