I just don't get it
Today at work, the housekeeper asked me if I was going to see the new Twilight movie. When I told here I wasn't, she looked at me like I had grown another head. She then asked me if I had seen any of the movies. I, of course, have not. She looked at me as though an alien was coming out of my stomach. I told her that I had read the first book, but it wasn't my genre of story. At this point, I thought she was going to faint from shock! I just don't get it. I'm not saying it's a bad or lame series. I just didn't enjoy it. I can tell you it's about vampires (and werewolves work into the story somehow but I'm not sure of the specifics). I can tell you that Kristin somthing-or-other plays Belle (or is it Bella?) and that some young hot body actor dude plays Edward (you'd have to be living under a rock to not know about these actors! They are everywhere now!). Other than those few things, I can't tell you anything else about Twilight. Does that make me a weirdo or mean I am not normal (I am aware that other things may make me a weirdo or not normal, but when you comment, please keep in mind that I am specifically asking about my lack of enthusiasm over Twilight. Please keep all other comments about my normalcy to yourself. Thank you)? I have yet to find someone who is not obsessed with Twilight. I know they are out there but I am sure they have entered some witness protection type program in order to avoid the shame and scorn heaped on them by their friends. So, how 'bout it readers: Is there anyone out there like me who just doesn't get this whole Twilight thing?
