When Forced to Decide…

Posted by robsbobcat on June 7, 2009

So, our town had a big anniversary parade.  My older son and I decided to march in it with some organizations we’re a part of because we really had nothing better to do with our Saturday morning.  Well, that’s a lie.  I could have stayed in bed because I was still feeling the beer that morning.  But, like the trooper that I am, I got us there on time to wait 3 hours for the damn thing to begin.  Among my peers, I was my normal, assured, work-mode self.  No sign of Twilight or Pattison anywhere in this crowd filled with political and human rights talk.  I thought I was safe until the 15 year old girl my son was buddying up with ran up to me screaming “You love Twilight, too!”.  That damn kid of mine.  My 13 year old son decided that he would read and watch Twilight as a way to get girls to talk to him.  He ratted me out.  She then squealed as I stared at her, unsure of what I should do.  Should I pretend to have no idea what she’s talking about, or should I start squealing along with her?  The stares of the people I was standing with were still focused on us.  I was uncomfortable.  The 15 year old continued, “Oh my god!  I was going to wear my Edward shirt today!  I should have!  Did you know that Edward and Bella in real life are going to get married?!”.  It was at this moment that my reputation needed to be set aside.  She had an Edward shirt and I didn’t?  I was more concerned about this jealousy over her having a shirt then whether or not my love of Edward and Twilight would discredit me on the spot.  And I just had to set the record straight on that Rob and Kristin rumor.  I just can’t believe that is true.  He could do so much better – like me for example.  So, I ignored the stares of the group, who obviously had no idea what Twilight movies and books could do to a person, and swallowed my pride.  I started to gush about all things Twilight with a 15 year old.  I think she’s made me her new BFF.

Dont make me punch you out so I can steal your Edward shirt.
