The Trip of a Life Time

Setting: Coffeehouse

“Hey Marvin! How are you?”

“Hey man!” *shakes hands* “It’s been a long time. I am doing fine, how are you?”

“Fine, fine. It’s been at least a year, are you headed out or can you sit, stay a while.”

“Sure” *Marvin sits at table takes a hand full of popcorn*

“So tell me what has been going on with you? What’s new?”

“I just got back from Hawaii.”

“Niiicee”

“Yeah it was a lot of fun. We went to a luau, saw the hula dancers. There was this one who looked like a smurf–not a girl smurf either.” *chuckles* “Alex O’Laughlin was even there.”

“The actor?”

“Yeah apparently he films Hawaii 5-0 there. It was pretty cool, the wife went totally nuts, her go-go gadget powers kicked in.”

“Wow that sounds like quite the vacation!”

“It was. It had everything someone could want drama, suspense, humor, Conan O’Brien (man he got sunburned), I bought a miniature Buddha covered in hair…”

“Hair?”

“Yeah it is a priceless piece.”

“Sounds great. Must have cost a fortune.”

“Yeah I told the wife it was this or the diamond earrings she has been after.”

“I bet you never wanted to come back.”

“Meh. I would miss the snow.”

“You would choose snow over the ocean?”

“I would.”

“Wow. I am jealous. How are the kids?”

“Oh they are good getting excited about Christmas.”

“You know I have the perfect gift idea for kids. I just bought one for my own kid.”

“Oh yeah what’s that.”

“It is in my trunk. I could tell you what it is but you would never understand. You want to come look?”

“Sure.”

*men get up and leave the café*

“What have you been up to Curt?”

“Oh it has been a bad year for me. My car is just around the corner.”

“Really what happened?”

“I died.”

“What?”

“I died. I was legally dead for 3 minutes.”

“Wow! That is awful what happened?”

“Car accident.”

“Oh no. You look ok now, how long ago was it?”

“Not too long.”

“Do you have any pain?”

“No.” *Curt pops the trunk of his car. The men step forward* “You know what it means that I died.”

“No, what?”

“I am undead.”

“I guess, technically that is true.”

“You know what else is undead Marvin?”

“Uh…”

“Zombies. Zombies are undead. So I guess that makes me a zombie.”

“Heh heh. Look you know I think I have to go.”

“You’re not going anywhere Marvin.”

Curt ate Marvin and stuffed his bones in the bean bag in his trunk. His kids would have a great Christmas this year.
