The Vampires

The other night I was at a taco bar with two friends, Jody and Amy. In the middle of conversation, a group of bikers walks in. Ya know the motorcycle gang look: leather jackets, facial hair, don't mess. (except for one guy that Amy said looked like Mike Myers from the 90's)

They ordered their food and then came and sat at the table next to us. It was then, to our enjoyment, we realized the name of their biker gang: The Vampires. It was on the back of their jackets. I don't know WHY it struck me as so funny, but it DID. I think Jody and I were having way too much fun, while Amy kept her head down and was scared to do anything around them, in case they decided to strike.

So then, stupidly, I thought it would be funny to go stand next to one guy and pretend I was a vampire too.

And then Jody and I thought it would be funny to have her pretend she just got bitten by one of them.

Meanwhile Amy kept her head down and whispered frantically at us that it was only a matter of time until they turned around and caught us making fun of their gang name. We then had a conversation that went something like this:

Jody: "What? You think they'll come after us?"
Me: "No worries, Aim. Just make the cross." (I made the cross sign with my fingers)
Jody: "Oh and Amy, you just ate a HUGE piece of garlic in your salsa! You're fine."
Me: (after thinking about it) "I could break this wooden stool I'm sitting on and make a stake!"
Amy: (in a whisper, looking even more terrified) "Shut UP, you guys!!"

I don't think Vampires show up on film, so I think those were fake vampires.

Although their skin was pale and ice cold.
