Sometimes you just have to show your fangs

Sometimes you just have to show your fangs.

My mother told me that. She showed me. As her only daughter she let me know that in order to survive and in order to be happy that I had to take control of my life.

That is a hard lesson for any young person, male or female. Take control but don’t be stupid. That is even more difficult.

A few things my mother told me when I was a young Vampire lass:

  • Look good at all times. You can wear your jammie pants at home but not out in public.
  • Be polite.
  • Be witty.
  • Listen at doors before you enter.
  • Make sure there aren’t any stains on your shirt.
  • Blood stains come out with cold water.
  • Flattery will get you in trouble.
  • Guard your secrets.
  • Be skeptical.
  • Be smart.
  • Guard your heart.
  • Use your brain.
  • Choose friends you’ll want to keep forever.
  • When you need to – show your fangs.

Sometimes a great dress isn't enough. Sometimes you have to just put yourself out there and laugh out loud, even if it isn't lady like. Sometimes you just have to show your fangs,

  1. I took me a while to find out that that’s something my mother was wrong about. It’s not always best to keep the mouth shut and let everything do with you just to make everyone except yourself happy!
    Finally I learnt… I learnt to become more and more myself… even though people realize that it’s not good when my eyes turn a sharp green… Maybe I don’t have fangs… but there are eyes that can warn…. 🙂
