I went outside yesterday morning. Although I haven't been entirely homebound since Grace's birth, it's been a while since I've ventured out before noon. (OK, I'll be honest: 4:00 PM.) So I was surprised to discover the sunlight burned my eyes. By the time I reached my destination (the garage) I was teary and disoriented. The sensation was so intense, I completely forgot what I'd gone outside to look for. So I shielded my face with my empty hands, and ran back to the dark comfort of my living room.
Now, I don't want to alarm anyone. I haven't seen a single scientific study that links childbirth to vampiracy. But I think it's time more research is done. And in the meantime, you might want to watch your backs. And you necks.
