The Odessa Record -

Things that go bump in the night

 
Series: Guest editorial | Story 1

They only come out at night! They hide inside, so they can’t be seen during the day, like the vampires they are. They don’t suck your blood, but they will make you bleed when they strike.

They poke their heads out from time to time like little ground hogs looking to see if the coast is clear, waiting for dark. Is anyone watching?

They strike when we’re asleep at night or gone. They will leave you in fear, because they have violated your space.

They’re easy to spot walking around late at night in dark colors and/or with coats on in hot weather, with their flashlight. Listen to the dogs barking between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. They always know when evil is out and about.

There is a way to stop them, and it’s not with wooden stakes through the heart. Try looking out your windows when the barking starts.

You can minimize being bitten by taking the extra time to lock up, close your windows and put valuables away. Out of sight, out of mind. They are opportunists! So don’t forget to lock your car, too.

By banding together and communicating, we as neighbors can stop them. Hopefully they will get tired of being watched, and the vampires will move out of town, or they will get caught. Let the judge drive the stake into the heart.
