This one was too good to keep to myself.
And it is “do it yourself” no less.
Yes, I know this is a silly thing for kids who are monster fans (from the 70’s) but it ties into this blog.
I get a lot of people visiting my blog wanting to know how they can become a Vampire. Oh boy.
It isn’t a simple answer. You can be born into it (which is rare) or you can have someone, preferably a friend, turn you into a Vampire.
If anything goes wrong, and it usually does, you could either lose your life, or worse lose your soul.
Yes, close 90% of Vampire conversions are failures. Seriously. I kid you not.
If it works you don’t just wake up one night and say to yourself, “blood for breakfast sounds good.” No, it isn’t that easy. It is a slow, horrible, painful process, and that is if you get someone with natural talent and expertise (like me) to convert you.
Then once you get converted, with your soul more or less intact (but changed), and a shadow soul, the adjustment begins. No more donuts. Think of yourself on the strictest diabetic diet ever created. You’re cold to the touch. You can go out during the day but your light sensitivity is extreme. You’re clueless.
How are you going to get blood out of someone without making a mess? How do you know how much to take without killing your donor? The clueless part is the worst. Other than that it isn’t a bad gig, but … there are so many moral and ethical issues involved. This isn’t weird guys in opera capes surrounded by beautiful women. This is regular life among the undead, in jeans and sweaters, and socks that don’t match (we too have to clean cat boxes.)
If you’re lucky, someone, a more experienced Vampire, will be assigned to help you out. Hope you’re lucky or you won’t last long.
And to be perfectly honest with you, I don’t want everyone becoming Vampires. It is something special. It is our world. The warm blooded folks have their own world and own insanity.
Anyway, that is it for today. I just thought the ad was funny and wanted to share.
