Five Routine Minutes: Why There Won’t Ever Be Zombie HawksPosted: April 23, 2012
I made a quick trip to visit my son on campus last week.
We were walking toward his dorm and saw something a little startling. A squirrel. Well, not so much a squirrel, as a squirrel’s head. Nothing more.
The squirrel had a shocked look on his face.
I reacted as you might expect:
The squirrel looked like he had been saying the same thing at the moment he went to squirrel heaven.
My son had an idea of what had happened.
He majors in environmental stuff and since high school he’s worked at a rehab center for birds of prey. I feel sure he knew what he was talking about.
When I say rehab for birds of prey, I’m talking helping injured birds…
The squirrel certainly wasn’t going to say much to contest his point of view.
But the disembodied squirrel head left me with a question.
Well there you have it. And that answer leads me to a very logical and reassuring conclusion.
Zombies eat brains.
Hawks don’t. So…
I am reassured.
