30M2DW III - Day 10


Zombies

So I'd narrowed Horse down to be one of the seven guys. I won't say how I ruled out the ladies. You'll just have to take my word for it.

I'd staked out the men's showers bright and early. I'd drilled a tiny peep hole in the outside wall, giving me a clear shot at whoever might be taking a shower. In this way I'd be able to identify the guy with a horse's head tattoo on his chest.

Bob was the first up. And in no time at all I'd ruled him out. But Bob seemed to really enjoy his shower and took his time, if you know what I mean. I couldn't watch.

Bill was next and I could see right away he wasn't my guy. A bit of a horse's ass, Bill. But no horse's head.

Brian showed up next. And wait. He had a tattoo. But he was sideways to me and I couldn't make it out. He turned and… What the fuck? Who the hell was Harold?

It didn't take me long to find out when the next guy in the shower was…Harold. And he didn't wait for Brian to leave. I think Brian must have dropped the soap but I couldn't watch anymore.

That left Colin, Jim and Rod. But after Brian and Harold I wasn't in the mood for any more peeping.

And I didn't have to because there they were coming out of the bunkhouse. 

"Hey, mate" said the first one, "I'm Rod and these are me mates Colin and Jim"

"Oh hi guys, I'm Jack. Pleased to meet you."

"Are you coming to the concert tonight?" asked Rod.

"Concert? What concert?" I queried. "You mean the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show concert?"

"No, no that was last night" Rod mulled and rolled his eyes. "Our concert. We're the surviving members of that lesser known but hot 60s British pop group… "

"The Dave Clark Five?" I blurted.

"No, the Zombies."

"The Zombies?"

"Yeah, you know 'Tell Her No', 'She's Not There', Season of the Witch'?"

"Sorry, before my time I'm afraid.

"Oh that's a shame" said Rod, "Really great stuff."

"I'm sure. Say don't Colin or Jim talk?"

"Not if they don't have to. They much prefer to sing."

I said if I had nothing else to do I might drop by the concert. Maybe Dylan would come with me. Who knew this dude ranch had Zombies.

Now if you had have said the Grateful Dead were gonna perform I'd have jumped at the chance. But the living dead? Not so much.

Well I suppose it's better than Vampires.

Another day another episode of Inspector Jake Gouda and the case of the Three Amigos. Why don't you check out my blogging amigos over at We Work For Cheese and see what they're up to with today's prompt.

Yeah, it kinda creeped out Jack too. Some of these prompts took me to some strange places.

Oh, what a slippery soul you are! I really didn't want to know what men without horses get up to in the shower.

Snort.
nonamedufus said…
You're worried about unbridled passion?
babs (beetle) said…
Do you know, the only Zombies song I remember is 'She's not there'

There's a lot goes on in the men's showers ;)
nonamedufus said…
Ah, good one, Linda. Yeah he was trying to flesh out some information for sure.
nonamedufus said…
Apart from Season of the Whitch later in their career, She's Not There is probably what they were best known for.
Yup, definitely better than vampires! Those guys TOTALLY creep me out. Sounds like a very happening shower place!

You might cruise through most of this challenge on your knowledge of musical groups and their lyrics.

As for the tattoo...at least you have narrowed the field.
nonamedufus said…
I'm not at all familiar with the group Vampire Weekend so I went with The Zombies.
nonamedufus said…
Not-so-fun? Depends on your point of view. But, yeah, it has a bit of Porky's going on there.
nonamedufus said…
I might. I'm sure this won't be the last time.
Linda Medrano said…
What the hell is wrong with you people? Vampires are much much cooler than zombies. They are sexy and they smell good. As for peering into the men's showers, you are lucky we all know you or we might think something was a bit askew.
nonamedufus said…
Askew? Ask you what?
Ziva said…
Yikes, I'd stay far away from that shower if I were the good Inspector.
nonamedufus said…
It would have been far more interesting if I had have peeped into Moriarty's shower.

-- YIKES *squirms*

Very, very, very nice spin!

I'm a little disappointed that it wasn't the Dave Clark Five. I recognize more of their songs for some reason.

I know but Dave Clark Five wasn't the theme. Zombies was. What's a guy to do, eh?

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
