Something Else That's Cool

Recently, I posted my autographed picture of Andrew Lincoln, aka 'Rick' from AMC's "The Walking Dead." I squealed like a girl scout that sold her last box of cookies that day... But for some reason, I have never posted my autographs of Max Brooks!

A couple of years back, Max did a personal appearance at a local university, so a buddy of mine and myself packed up and made the trek to meet the zombie expert himself. It was an amazing day. Max was a terrific speaker, educating a packed house on the necessities for survival should the zombies come. And when it was all said and done, he greeted his fans with a book signing!

Of course he had no idea that he'd be receiving a gift from B'hold Designs!!

He greeted me with a handshake, was very patient as I pulled out three books for him to sign, and then wrote something different in each one. In the first, he wrote "Brett - do not surrender. They don't take prisoners" (wise words indeed, for they really don't). In the next he wrote "Brett - hunt, slay, repopulate"(sounds like a full day).

Before he wrote in the third book, he glanced up at my shirt (I was wearing the same design I brought for him) and he commented on it. It was then I showed him I brought one as a gift and he then wrote simply "Brett - great shirt, thanks" and even posed for a picture with it. The face he's making makes me laugh. I'm not sure he's convinced it would work in an actual zombie apocalypse.

It was cool, and he was really nice, and I hope our paths will cross again one day... perhaps while running for our lives from a rampaging, rapidly gaining horde of mouth-foaming undead. Wouldn't that be cool?!

Aim high. Run fast.
