So Twilight opens in theatres today. It's based upon some vampire-love-story novels that all the kiddies like, but I'm not up on all the hype.
The other day I posted to Twitter:
"Trying to determine if my ignorance of 'Twilight' is the first true sign of my aging."
I received direct responses from four women who do not know each other:
Cindy, classmate: "Nah. It's a girl thing. Twilight community is rabid."
Erika, coworker: "No, it just means you're intelligent."
Anna, WIB loyalist: "No, it just means you were never a teenage girl."
I felt good about those comments. Then my sister Nina chimed in:
"I have read all four books.... what is wrong with you?? Maybe you should take a trip to Forks, WA (where it's set) and you'll understand...
P.S. You're old."
Upon hearing this from the youngest respondent... I felt old.
P.S. Amanda and I saw the premiere of Slumdog Millionaire last night and recommend it.
