I Wear My Sunglasses at Night

Post by Scattercat » Fri Feb 05, 2010 8:28 am

The guy at the meat counter was hassling some ghoul ahead of me. I tried not to look.

“Pleez… just hambone… for soup…”

“Yeah? You run out of corpses in the cemetery? My mom is buried there, you creep.”

I don’t get involved. I’m three, four generations back. Just a little pale, pronounced canines. I like steak tartare. I know some of the other thin-blood vamps play hardcore, all blinged out with capes and coffins. Not me.

The ghoul gave up after a while. They’ve got butcher shops in Bonetown.

I smile at the butcher. I don’t open my lips.

Welcome to the forum, Scatter. Interesting new take on vampirism, great drabble.

It's probably worth considering that tropes follow the same cultural trajectory as real life. Which means if vampires have reached the Real Housewives of Orange County stage, we're just about all caught up.

Last stop: The butcher turns out to be Keith Olberman, and the customer is Sarah Palin.

In the interests of full disclosure, it's technically my 458th drabble. I'm glad you liked it. :-)

I like this one too, despite my inherent prejudice against vampire (and zombie) stories.
