Agreed...on all counts. When I was a young girl, after watching old reruns of Bewitched, I actually thought there were real witches who could fly. Imagine my dissappointment when I grew up, read some and learned those types of witches don't exist, and except for yogis who live in the Himalayans or people who do mushrooms, there wasn't any real flying going on either. I can't be too hard on the young who ask how to become a vampire because vampires have taken over the media in both books, movies and TV in the 90s and 2000s the same way witchcraft and the like took over the 60's in the anti-establishment era. We all come of age sooner or later. We all learn at our own pace. Along the line, maybe we actually learn something. I do agree with what you've said concerning the vamp life and adults. I'm not sure where to draw the age line but I think if you're in your 40's and you still don't see the light, a trip to your local psychiatrist might be in line. Just my opinion. Still can't help wanting what goes with that fantasy--- to live forever, never grow old, never get sick.......life just seems too short.
