ZombyBoy Versus the Hurricane
Today’s coverage of Hurricane Wilma slamming Florida won’t include the courageous story of ZombyBoy and the G-Phrase trying to take a freakin’ vacation there this week. We’re more likely to hear celebrity soundbites about how President Bush doesn’t like retired Jewish people from New York or exiled Cubans, or else he would have stopped this natural disaster from hitting Florida. Or, how about DNC conspiracy theories that the Bush government was behind the bombs in Baghdad this morning to draw our attention away from Hurricane Wilma and Florida.
Anyway, back to my heroic tale about a graphic designer just trying to celebrate a vacation. Despite the warnings that he and the hurricane were going to intersect on one of Mother Nature’s busiest highways of natural disasters today, ZombyBoy bravely boarded his plane Saturday and left the safety of his Mile-High Home in Denver for a little fun on the wind-swept, rain-soaked beaches of Florida’s west coastline. Of course, he also had a little fun planned at Mickey’s place as well, so here’s to shorter lines at DisneyWorld and my heartfelt wishes that ZB is still managing to enjoy his much deserved vacation, even if it’s in the midst of one of nature’s major sneezes.
Please be sure to comment on ZB’s vacation-planning abilities and encourage him to write a first-hand account upon his return next weekend.
