Portia wasn't your average zombie. She had a special door in her own skull that she'd open each day, then she'd take an ice-cream scoop and bring out a pink "melon-ball." Then she'd sprinkle in some sugar, close the hatch and fry up the brains with a few pinto beans and a sauce. The next day her brain had regenerated enough for her to do this all over again. It was so disgusting and so very interesting that we made it a staple party trick every Halloween.
