That protein powder I mentioned? I’m selling it now. Hey, I could be like the Geico gecko for this company. Or the Geico caveman. Or the Geico money-with-eyeballs.
What’s that saying about acting like the success you want to be, or something like that? Yeah, well, that’s what I’m doing. I’m doing my best to get back to my normal life. I’m trying to put myself back into the real world, a regular life. So I went to the mall today, just to wander around…and I don’t think there was a single person who didn’t scream at me, try to attack me, or make some “Dawn of the Dead” wisecrack.
Is it really so hard to see that I’m not a zombie? Yes, my joints are stiff, my face is decayed, and I need to actively keep track of my fingernails, but I have intelligent thoughts and regular emotions, just like you. And, you know what? I’m sensitive. It hurts that no matter what I do to differentiate myself, you still lump me in with dangerous monsters.
I do my best, just like everyone else. We all have something we’re dealing with. I’ve got decaying skin. What do YOU have?
