Vampires and Yoga
In the middle of yoga class yesterday, Siouxsie’s yoga teacher started talking about vampires.
What follows is not an exact transcript, but pretty close.
Yoga teacher to class:
Yoga is not a fantasy. Yoga is real. Yoga is not like vampires. Vampires are a fantasy, one that happens to be really popular right now. Anyone who believes vampires are real is crazy. Seriously, if you think vampires are real you are totally messed up.
Siouxsie might be paranoid, but she can’t help thinking that her teacher intended the vampire sermon for her. Siouxsie is the only openly goth person at yoga. But even more, Siouxsie is the proud owner of the above-pictured yoga bag. The one with the giant bat painted on it. Siouxsie will admit she likes bats (they make a bad-ass power animal). And while Siouxsie enjoys vampire mythology, she doesn’t think vampires are actually real.
Siouxsie, coincidentally, just found out today that she is anemic. She doesn’t want to drink your blood though. She just wants to find a good iron supplement that won’t make her nauseous.
Bonus book suggestion: A Discovery of Witches, a novel that “conjures a brew of a number of pop literature elements, starting with an illicit love affair between an American scholar and athlete, who happens to be a witch, and a 1,500-year-old, wine-loving, yoga-practicing vampire.”
