How To Kill a Vampire

I was sitting on the couch next to my 6 year-old daughter, Maddie, when I noticed a number of mosquito bites on her leg.

"You've got a lot of mosquito bites," I commented.

Maddie rubbed her leg. "Yes, I have 10 of them, Daddy."

"The mosquitoes must like your blood," observed Mum from the kitchen.

"Just like vampires," I teased. "I bet a vampire would like your blood."

Maddie just glared at me.

Out of interest, to see what her knowledge of popular fantasy culture was like, I asked her "And do you know how you kill a vampire?"

Maddie thought for a moment.


My wife and I burst out laughing.
