Zombies, Werewolves or Vampires?
Published on Monday, February 10, 2014 by

It was a simple question to my daughter that resulted in a long, philosophical discussion.  “Honey, I have to write about Zombies for day ten.  I was thinking… which would be better… Living in a world filled with zombies, vampires or werewolves?”

My choice was the obvious.  Zombies, of course!  Just watch Walking Dead.  Zombies are slow.  And stupid.  And are not much of a threat unless they are in herds.  Just carry a sharp stick with you and WHAM!  Zombie brains!

“No Mom, you are completely wrong.  You want to live with werewolves.”

“WEREWOLVES?!  That would be horrifying!  You would never know who is a werewolf and who is not!  They would eat you immediately.  You can’t run away from them!  They are fast, they can track you down and then you are dinner.”

Funny thing, though.  After discussing several points about life with zombies, vampires and werewolves, I realized she was right.  Better to live with werewolves.

Here are a few of the key points to my daughter’s sound reasoning:


bloody zombie

Zombies are everywhere, 24/7.  They are annoying, get themselves locked in buildings you need supplies from and of course, there are the herds.  If you eventually get bitten you become one too.  That will make you stupid, clumsy and forever hungry.


sexy vampires

You can’t get away from vampires.  No matter how careful you are, they will find you and bite you.  Now, being a woman, there is a bit of sexy intrigue to this, yes.  But if you are a dude, well… not all dudes really want a death kiss by the guy next door.  Once finally bitten and turned, you can say goodbye to the daylight.  Let’s not even talk about how vulnerable you are while sleeping in your daytime coffin!

Sure, werewolves are scary and can run REALLY FAST.  The key to living with werewolves is to make friends with them and ask one to bite you.  Once you are a werewolf yourself it is nothing but smooth sailing.  You can be outside both day and night, living a normal life except for that one tiny full moon a month.

I asked my daughter about that one tiny full moon a month.  “You are going to have to EAT PEOPLE!  EWWWWW!”  “No Mom, you can eat animals, remember?  And even if you ate a person, it would taste good to you and you probably won’t even remember it in the morning!”

Of course there is that whole waking up naked the next day thing.  That might be a tiny bit awkward.

Which world would YOU want to live in?  A world with zombies, vampires or werewolves?
