Dear Dad on flight from Chicago to LAX-
I was settling in for another tortureous 4 hr flight on American “we don’t believe in legroom” Airlines when I saw you pull out something familiar from your bag. As all twi-fans can attest we have Twi-dar, meaning we can sense or see anything Twilight related within a 5 mile radius and so OF COURSE I KNEW what that little red ribbon was on the front of your book. You had brought along Eclipse to help pass the time. I was about to rip it out of your hands and read some good ol Bella/Edward/Jacob love triangle when you started READING IT OUTLOUD!! I sat there going ‘why in the world would he be reading that outloud?’ Then I stood up to AHEM “stretch my legs” AHEM and I saw that sitting in between you and the lady I assume is your wife was your son! A young-ish 12-13 yr old BOY! And I knew I’d found another Unicorn*: A Dad reading Eclipse to his son!
So I grabbed my bag and ripped out my phone cause this just had to be documented. Then I stealthy took like 10 shots without you ever knowing. Seriously, look at these! TMZ needs to hire me cause this is some stalker-azzi shiz right here! I thought long and hard about asking you and the fam for a pic, but I didn’t want to freak anyone out so I grabbed the shot you see and parked myself to listen to your dad-voice read the part where Edward and Bella exchange notes in Mr. Berty’s English class. As I sat there I wondered what if you got to the part where Edward “hitches Bella’s leg up around his hip.” How would you explain THAT to your son? Or what about all the shirtless kissing?!
Oh well, at least he was even talking to the kid! More parents should be as involved and kids need to hear about Bella and Edward’s love story. So I stopped asking questions and listened to your voice as we landed to the tales of the Wolves trading stories.
See more Unicorns!
What’s a Unicorn? *A Unicorn is a term we use to refer to mythical creatures… meaning people we’ve only heard exist but have never seen in real life, i.e.: a man reading Twilight/A male Twilight fan*
