Ever since we decided to “come out of the coffin,” things have gotten better in some ways and more complicated in others.

For example, non-discrimination ordinances don’t allow No Vampire signs, but villagers could get clever. At my favorite Italian place, I note conspicuous cloves of garlic and let my fangs show as I place my order.

The wide-eyed clerk is young, cheeks flush with the fresh bloom of youth. “Sorry about the garlic,” she whispers as she hands me my change.

“I’ll deal with your boss later,” I reply with just a hint of menace – then smile to show I’m only kidding. Or, am I?

Thanks Rochelle and Dale for another inspiring prompt!
