There is an annotated version of Bram Stoker's "Dracula",
probably explains it in there. I read it whilst in hospital,
one of the nurses thought it was an odd choice of a book
to read in a hospital.
Oh, I dunno .... seems totally appropriate to me! (The medical
profession being "bloodsuckers" in more ways than one, at least here in
the U.S.) (;-)
When I have to go to the clinic for a blood test, I have been known to say
I was visiting the vampires 8-)
Very droll. I tell them I have given an armful but I doubt that you know the
significance of that because you will never have heard of Tony Hancock.
