Table Topics 10.26.09 with a Halloween Theme

TMLogoA yearly tradition in our Toastmasters Club is to have a Halloween themed meeting. We have some candy and decorations.

If it was not only the Zombie Apocalypse and the tomato apocalypse but also the Monster under the bed Apocalypse – what do you think would be the hardest thing you would have to do to survive?

4. One of the good things that will come out of the Zombie Apocalypse is that Humans and Vampires will finally be friends. Because if the Zombies eat all the humans, there will be no more food for them. What other cool new monster/human partnerships do you look forward to?

I got called on for the first question. I’m not a fan of questions where I have to be creative and make stuff up. I’m much better when I can fall back on a past experience. Luckily, I was able to talk about how evil and vile okra is.
