Bent Back Tulips

"I've always wanted to see how the other half live" --Cholo, Land of the Dead

Sleep patterns all askew from early rises and acute lack of sleep, I lay dead to the world for a few hours today, after coming home from our barbeque with a dull, throbbing headache. The remains of the day seems strange after waking from daylight dreams. Dreams of the other half.

Everyone said that I was crazy, when I arrived on foot at the movies to see Land of the Dead; so reliant on motorised transport we've all become. I didn't have my car and it's really not all that far to walk and listening to Please Please Me on the way actually made it quite enjoyable, even though I did end up with a small blister on my left heel.

I enjoyed the film, but think I've had enough zombie movies over the past few days to last me a while. I scored a lift home afterwards while thinking of all those people with no transportation but their own two feet, and those unable to afford a regular evening at the movies. Looking through the bent backed tulips, can we really see how the other half lives?
