Fantasy Horror Suspense

Hello.....My name is Ricardo

I am looking for the convention room in this hotel for fans/discussions about The Walking Dead...

And all the theories about how that scenario is playing out in the "Real" world...

Can You Help me....I notice you are wearing the Rick Grimes outfit...so I figure you must know where you are going...

Am I right?

Yeah...

yeah...

I am Donald....Don to my friends.....Trumpass..

and I hope you will be one of them....

It is so hard to discuss this situation with "normal" people who have no idea what is going on all over North America....

I can see by your Daryl Dixon outfit that you are one of us serious ones....

By the way...If you don't mind my asking...

Do you watch Riding With Norman Reddis too?

Nah...not into the motorbike crap....

I watched a few....

Same thing everytime....

He rides up to a "New" set of "strangers" every week and talks and talks and talks.....

I am surprised one of those "Motorcycle Clubs" don't just whack him...

and cut off all his filthy greasy hair...

You would think the Producers would clean him up a bit...

Naw...

strictly a Walking Dead guy.....

Where you from?

Texas...

well,

a ranch in southern Texas...close to the Mexican border..

You want to talk about Brain.......less?

Ya'all should see the wetback problems we got down there..

their coming in from all over...

we otta build a wall or something...keep the criminals out...

AND..

we should make THEM pay for it too..

Fricken useless...

with their dozen kids...

can't even feed them....

Good one...

I get your drift...I was just wondering about your accent..

Can we go in?

Sure...follow me....where you from..

Good ole New York New York..

Whoa...this must be the hall...

Listen to all the noise....

Must be a lot of us here today...

Shall we.....

Don?

Good Evening Gentleman...

and fellow Brain Eaters

I am Barbara...Barb....

Do you have any questions for me before I release you into our little soiree.....

Have you been to one before?

Well, I haven't...

but Don seems to never miss them..

My name is Ricardo...

Is there anything special I need to Know?

Not really....

Just follow your friend and he will quickly get you "headed" in the right direction...

Menus are on the table there to your right...

Enjoy....and feel free to give me a 'Heads Up" if you need anything

Jesus...

She just makes the corniest puns over and over....

HEH LOOK...isn't that Carla Grimes...

do you know her?

I am not getting personal..

I only meant have you ever met or seen her before?

Not sure...Ric...

I've seen the outfit many times...

But the hair looks different...

obviously a wig...

Doesn't show much commitment...

Ya wanna go over and talk to her first...

Or wander through the exhibits...

Or grab something to eat....

Every year they have "Brains" made out of Jello...

in all shapes and forms...

cute idea...

Grab a mouthful..

close your eyes...don't taste the Jello..

and for God's Sake....don't even look at that orange crap

and imagine yourself chowing down on some brains off your latest victim....

Virtual Reality my ass...

These mind games make that crap look useless...

H'mmm...Don't look now ...but approaching from the North...

Hi Guys...

I am Loretta...

this is only my second convention...but I love it..

how about you two...

You must be pretty serious...

all made up as the two major characters...

Hi...your looking pretty serious yourself...

I am Don...this is my new friend Ric...

His first trip...

But I try to make it annually....

Gives me a great reason to get out of Texas...

Texas...

Very interesting.....

Is it true that everything is bigger in Texas?

I AM trying to be serious....

but maybe a few too many "Brain Cocktails"...

You boys not drinking tonight?

Ah..we just got here...and are trying to determine what to do first...

But that bit a hooch looks pretty good...

where's the Seller...

Care to join us for one?

Why you old sweet talking cowboy...

Don't mind if I do....

Excuse me folks...

Me and my friends here were just looking to get a drink...

I'm Don...

These are my new friends...

Loretta...from..she never said where...and Ric from The Big Apple Hope y'all are having a great night...

Weeellll...

What will it be..

You sharp looking zombies...

Are you entering the Contest this year?

Thinking on it...don't know about my friends..

You should...

WOW...

you three are the meanest mofos I seen in a long time...

We have "BRAIN... Cocktails...

Or Brain..COCKTAILS

not all in red...

I think I will stick with the red...

If I get to spilling some on myself...

well, then it will just look like I am really into character...

Which I am..

I don't know about my friends.....

By the way whose is hosting this year...

It's actually the "Fear the Walking Dead" group...

out of Vegas here...

Pretty good set up...

I will also have the red...

and you Loretta?

Red is great thanks..,

aren't you sweet...

I'll just head off to the little girls room for a second...

Ric...

I heard this was your first time ...

Be careful of her...

she's a hooker...she makes every convention...

and I would say a hell of a lot of money...

I would think...

Look at her...

even walking away...

Yesseree Bob...

Usually after a "few" drinks...

She calls herself The Desert Rose...Says she's from Arizona..

I doubt if anyone knows the truth...

and she HAS been with lots...

Excuse me sir...did I hear you say you were from Texas?

I have a brother in Texas...

all he ever does is oil crap...

Laughs at me every year...

wouldn't even be bothered to eat his brains...

My name is Frank...

I am from Missouri...

the Show Me State..

How would you guys like to join our little discussion on how people nowadays are starting to act like Brain Eating Zombies..,

It ain't just no Hobby anymore..

You know what they say...

5 brains are better than one...

I love that one...

sure..thanks..

Don and Ric...

And ya know...

I see it every day...

People wandering around mindlessly..

not just drunks or dopers...

The homeless..jobless...hopeless..

Seems everything is "Less nowadays"...

sure hope that Biden guy can change all this manure...

Sally here...my wife...

we come every chance we can...

Seems to think Old Joe will be good for mainstream America... Not just Big Business...Or Big bullshit....

No pun intended Don...

No problem...that is what America ...

specially us Suthreners are up to our asses in...

Well...

I saw you talking to Loretta....

Be careful...she'll eat more than your brains...

and you Will end up paying for it..

Good old Desert Rose...

How do YOU know about that Desert Rose...

I come with you every year...

and I never met her...

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY NEXT?

A lot of fun. I loved the real world mentions and the Desert Rose joke, For me it would be even better if you tightened up the satire slightly. Pulled it through as a constant stream, developing into a final point. Although that would be a lot of work in the edit so dont sweat it. Kudos on your choice of style, not easy and following all the speech was not difficult.

I much appreciate the constructive criticism...... To be brutally honest.....I just started writing it based upon a memory of trip to Universal Studios... (and boredom) and it took off on me... never knew what I was going to say next... or whom I would "introduce"... So not much possibility of a "constant stream".......as a "Stream of Unconciousness" I SHALL WATCH FOR YOUR SUBMISSIONS. This is a great idea..during these troubling times....and it will get "closet" authors...or those who haven't published in a long time... A chance to...

I have a piece just up called 'Two Cents', I wrote it in a London dialect so I would appreciate an international eye, if you are up for it? If it comes across as unreadable to an American I would like to know.
