I felt like a kid in a candy store. But which side to take? Follow my inner child, admit that my old room at my parent's house still has unicorns plastered all over the walls? Or embrace the darkness within and go with those stylish Undead, the Zombies? I decided I would read first and decide later.
I have to tell you that some of the stories in this book were UNBELIEVABLE. My favorites? On the Zombie side: LOVE WILL TEAR US APART by Alaya Dawn Johnson. The Unicorn side: Princess Prettypants by Meg Cabot. Both freaking brilliant.
Still confused after I finished the book however, I thought I would invite an actual member of each team over to debate the issue. So I have with me today a Unicorn and a Zombie.
ME: So, some people say Unicorns are passe. That you've had a good run, but now it's the age of the Zombie. What do you have to say to that?
Unicorn: I'm above such foolishness. Can't you see by my shiny coat and rainbow colored hair that I don't care what others think?
ME: Uh huh. And you aren't afraid you come off as just a teeny bit, well, overinflated?
Unicorn: Nonsense. I simply tell the truth. I mean really? Look at me. Now look at that. Ew. Don't breathe on me.
ME: Great. Um, excuse me Mr. Unicorn? Please don't nibble the upholstery. And Mr. Zombie, please stop, um, yeah. Never mind. I think I have enough information to make an informed decision now.
So, as short as that interview was, I think we can all say we gleaned some seriously enlightening information from it. Right? Can't you see the answer now?
Team Unicorn or Team Zombie? I don't think so.
I'm Team Gnome. All the way!!
