It's in the Blood
Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Kendell and I are getting our favorite bagels at the local shop Saturday. Standing in line to pay way too much for wads of dough (oh I am funny aren’t I) I fall into the no man lands of line boredom.
“Mom,” Kendell looks up at me while poking at his incisors with his finger.

“Why are these teeth so sharp and pointy?”

I look down at him pretending to give this question great consideration while the gears in my head start whirring madly and the “get your kid back” alert is echoing down the caverns of my brain.

Deadpan, I sigh and say, “Well, I wasn’t going to tell you this yet, but when you turn 16 you’re going to turn into a vampire.”

“Nu uh,… really?” he asks

Ignoring the look of disapproval from the Barbara Bush wannabe behind me, I leaned in confidentially and said, “Soon as you start craving blood, just you let me know.”

With that I straightened up, paid for our bagels and took my little Vlad out to the car.

Authors Note: I also had “fangs” till about eighth grade, surprisingly no one ever wanted me to give them hickeys…

Cute, but I really think you needed to freak out the Barbara Bush wannabe more.

Great answer! Being a vampire would be totally cool, assuming you could avoid sunlight and being staked... ;-)
