The Zombie

I walked into my bedroom the other day and saw my 4 year old daughter sitting cross-legged on the floor staring at Dragon Tales on the television. She didn't turn her head to acknowledge me as I sat down behind her to watch with her. Then I got a little freaked out - she had a tear trailing down her face and she was not blinking! I waved my hand in front of her face.


I called her name.

Not even one blink.

I snapped my fingers as my heart started to pound a little harder.

Now her mouth had dropped open and droll was escaping her lips.

"Oh no!" I thought. The Dragon Tales have got her! She is being hypnotized and will be taken over by aliens at any time. Call the FBI, NSA, Bugs Bunny! HELP!

"Huh?" my daughter muttered.

"Hurray!" I thought, "she has defeated those evil aliens and their mind-control device."

And then I noticed that the show was over.
