Important Question: If I didn't notice a sparkle, can it still be a vampire?

This is the kind of urgent question that cannot wait until it's not the middle of the night to ask of The Internet.

This evening, close to midnight, we were shocked to discover an intruder in the house that may be either a bat or some kind of darting swift or swallow. It didn't stop panickedly swooping toward my indefensibles long enough for me to get a good look at it before finding a safe enough nook in which to plot its revenge.*

So, after several fruitless hours of searching, the question I have for you all is this:

Which one of us will wake up with this thing on our face?

It's kind of important that we know this as soon as possible. Please share your educated hypothesis** in the comments.

* And J- couldn't see much from under the blanket, where she was, quote, "Protecting the baby."

** Additionally, I suppose, you could answer by telling us who will
never wake up after this thing was on our faces?

No one.
Creature will hunt to find a place without people.
A quieter place than your lively house.

You. Obviously.

Thought youd move your cute little family to a nice home in the country did you. Prolly better burn the place down. By now the creature has had time to establish a clutch (i think thats what they call a dragon nest...). Youre all doomed. Its just a matter of time.

Im helpful.

Well, we've got quite a formidable nest of our own, here, Brandy-- I think the thing was so frantically flying around because he couldn't find any clear space to land amongst all the clutter.

This is how we will defeat him.

No... not really. You see, to break it all down for you, sir or madam, on this blog, I like to say most things facetiously, preferably while using words like "facetiously" as a counterpoint to the simplistic, generally base level of humor hidden behind it.

Way to make me break the fourth wall, maaaaan.
