PREVENTION AGAINST VAMPIRES

IF ONE MORNING YOU AWAKEN AND HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME BREATHING
OR HAVE A FEELING THAT SOMETHING HEAVY IS ON YOUR CHEST, THIS
MEANS THAT A VAMPIRE SAT ON YOUR CHEST OVERNIGHT.
TO PREVENT THIS FROM HAPPENING AGAIN, GET A BROOM
TURN IT UPRIGHT, AND LEAN THE BRISTLES AGAINST
THE DOORKNOB. THIS WILL PREVENT THE VAMPIRE FROM ENTERING
