Introducing the ‘zombie speed lesson’

Box set binging, is it a good thing? Some people would argue for and an equal amount against.

At some point over the summer when I decided to watch The Walking Dead, in-between thinking that every episode is basically the same, I noted down in the margin of my planner ‘teach a lesson using zombies’. About three weeks ago, I found this this note. This is my story about what happened next.
