Last night, I was approached at work by a very charming young woman, with perhaps a bit of the naïf about her, who had a somewhat unusual question:
"Do you know anything about the red-eyed people who come out after dark and scare other people? Are they vampires?"
Being a Yonkers guy, I had an immediate response: "No, those are drunks."
I think she was referring to the urban legend about black eyed children, so not being a total dick, after my typical disclaimer that I watched quite a bit of classic Scooby Doo as a kid, so I didn't believe in monsters, I referred her to the Creepypasta website so she could read up on urban legends.
Then I pulled a Lafcadio Hearn on her and revealed my red, sleep-deprived eyes.
