If you encountered a vampire in real life, would you talk to him/her? What about a ghost or a witch or a werewolf or a mummy?
It’s an interesting dilemma. These days, supernatural creatures have essentially been neutered by modern literature and movies. Vampires are sexy, not scary. Witches are cool, and werewolves are hot.
I’ve always battled with this question. As a history major, I’d be fascinated to be able to talk to someone who has lived several hundred years. I’d like to think that it would be easy to carry on a conversation with any of the creatures listed, but frankly it probably wouldn’t be as awesome as I picture it in my head.
