Story A Day Prompt, 25 April, 2013: Me vs. Zombies

It was another beautiful day. Sort of. The sky was this sort of artificial blue and the grass was some kind of green. When I looked out, there were two rows instead of just one like yesterday. Things were about to get busy. No sooner had I thought it did the first wave come; whoever was in control was not particularly adept at planting and they hadn’t figured out the value of sunflowers. In my regular life, I would have agreed, having a personal aversion to the large, face-like plants. I figure if I ever get back to my regular life, I’ll go find a field of them and apologize. The problem is I only have so many lawnmowers and if this person doesn’t figure things out, I’ll be toast soon.


“Mom! Wake up!”

“Yes, yes–why are you yelling?”

“You fell asleep playing Plants vs. Zombies again and messed up my score. Geez! How many times can you get eaten?”

“Sorry, honey; I just don’t get it. And what am I supposed to do with these smiling sunflowers?”

Oh, and if you don’t know anything about Plants vs. Zombies, get ready to be hooked. Here is a link to an online version of the game, and here’s a link to the Wikipedia entry about it, which will give you more history than you probably wanted. Happy gaming!

  1. Liked the quick read. Funny. I fell asleep this morning whilst nano writing and must have gone to work … I woke up and had typed help with spelling.

  2. Love “Plants Vs Zombies”! Nice read:) It would have been cool if you had a battle scene in there! And he/she dies and at that moment is when the mother comes and wakes them up.

    1. 🙂 Thanks, Jay–I can see that! In this case, the mom was playing the kid’s game and had fallen asleep; the kid wakes her up and is dismayed because she’s died (yet again). Maybe it didn’t come across clearly…I snuck this one in whilst hiding from my Camp NaNoWriMo novella for a few minutes 😀
