The inevitable question about zombies

Bill Hinzman as the cemetery zombie from Night...Image via WikipediaThis morning Autumn asked me what Zombies eat.

The correct answer is brains. Everyone knows Zombies prefer brains, but they'll eat the rest of you as an appetizer.

But for a 4-year old who is scared of monsters, the actual answer is there are no real zombies.

Each summer, Buffalo has a zombie walk. A whole bunch of people, old and young, dress up like zombies. I honestly don't know why, but I plan to find out.

Anyway, we were riding bikes when we saw some of them walking in to get pizza. Keep in mind, this was June.

So, when I tell Autumn that zombies aren't real, she recognizes that I haven't answered the question.

"But dad, do they eat Zombie Pizza?"

Autumn remembered the Zombies from the summer. Remembered that they were going for pizza. Connect the dots and came to her own conclusions.
