From the mailbag: Stuff my guy said about Twilight

Hey, girls!

This is the first time I’m writing because, well, I’m a new fan of Twilight. Yep, it’s true. I only just read the books this summer after seeing Eclipse at the movies! How did I manage not to get sucked in before that, you ask? Easy, I’ve been working my ass off to pay for plane tickets so I can see my boyfriend of 5 years who is now my long-distance boyfriend. We literally live on opposite sides of the country (he in Hawaii, me in Florida). Why do I do this? It’s a long story, but I keep it up because he’s amazing. Maybe this letter will give you an idea. . .

So, I trust that you’ve both seen this Burger King commercial?

Yeah, the boyfriend saw them, too. And when, on my last visit he busted me with Twilight in my purse, he totally lost his shiz. He spent the rest of the week asking me if I was gonna leave him for Edward because “he’s had 100 years to learn how to love?” (Snickersnickersnicker) I laughed with him, ’cause it was totally batshiz insane for me to be reading these books. I’m a grown woman! But I spent the rest of the week taking free moments to read it. Then I made him take me to the bookstore so I could buy New Moon. He laughed, but took me anyway, and then bought it for me.

Fast forward to a couple of weeks later. I’m finished with all of the books and my obsession is in full swing, but I’m too embarassed to talk about it with anyone- even the boyfriend whom I talk to multiple times a day. I was deep in the closet, kids. I had just discovered LTT when I got a special care package in the mail. The boyfriend had sent a few things I had forgotten, as well as a special post card:


I’ll translate because his handwriting is illegible. It says

“I’ve only had 31 years to learn how to love, but the last 5 have been the best.”

Not a full-fledged unicorn, but I swooned nonetheless. Here’s hoping all the LTT girls are just as lucky!

    What a sweet letter. And what an amazing boyfriend. I don’t think you need to hear from us the fact that he’s a keeper ;) Best wishes to you both!

  • fangbanger

    Sweet letter!

    My boyfriend bites me on the neck and calls me “Sookeh”. We get some weird looks but haters to the left. And all that jazz.

  • Nelle

    Welcome to the obsession. And lucky you to have a RL Edward!

  • GeminiGypsy

    hah, so my mom wanted a rundown of the twilight plot, and I happily obliged at the dinner table. My brother was there, and pretended to tune us out, but the next day after school he complains to me, “Now that I know what happens in Twilight, I know what all the girls are talking about! This is awful! ” Then I tried to point out that he now had a new conversation starter with girls, but he didn’t go for it :P I just thought it was funny how he reacted

  • Rachel B

    That is sooo cute! all together now: “awwwwww”

    Sounds like a good guy!

  • natashadushi

    My husband–who was probably THE most unwilling to have anything to do with twilight–came home one evening, after he wasn’t home for supper for whatever reason, with two Burger King Twilight game pieces un-scratched. He told me, “hey hon, I brought these home for you because I figured you’d like these.”

    It was silly scratch pieces, but given his salty hatred of twi he’s shown since I ignored him and our daughters while reading the books the first time and resentment of sharing his name with the characters, it made my heart flutter a little… until I wondered if he just wanted to get lucky. ;)

    No, actually he’s seemed to have gotten over his saltyness of it, though he’ll never be a unicorn. But that’s okay.

    Okay, that commercial had me rolling on the floor! LOVE the look on the old guy’s face when given advice!

    “Do you WANT to be eaten by a werewolf?”

    priceless!!

    • ChillinWithCullens

      Ha! comment FAIL! the “werewolf” quote actually has something to do with a chewtoy! Even better!

  • noddin

    Lucky girl! He definitely sounds like a keeper!

    I too somehow missed the whole Twilight craze until the week Eclipse came out. A Twihard friend invited me to see it with a large group of her coworkers. I watched her Twilight DVD that Monday night, New Moon on Tuesday night, saw Eclipse on Thursday night and started reading the books that night after I got home. Finished them all within the week. I think I found LTT the following week and have been here ever since!

    And now I’ve been sucked into fan fiction!

    Also, I hate that stupid blue button! Every time I try to give someone a “thumbs up” I somehow get a stupid pop up box related to the blue button. It is driving me crazy! I don’t comment a lot, but I do give lots of thumbs up (because you all seem to put my thoughts into words much better than I do!)

  • Cookie

    Definitely a keeper!!

    I am also a Twilight newbie (circa July 2010). Completely obssessed with Twilight (Edward *swoon* – just finished reading a couple of fanfics – my new obssession!)

    My husband, the day after the Teen Choice awards posted this on his FB wall, with a picture of Rob and my face super imposed on Katie Perry’s body:

    “GUESS who I saw today, my dear. They rolled around in a bed of wild flowers in a light-drenched clearing in the damp misty forest. He sparkled in the sun of her adulation like a million faux Swarovskis and then drove her off in his oh-so metrosexual Volvo C30. Guess who I saw today. Guess who I saw today. Can you guess who I saw today?”

    So I was totally outed by my hubby to all our friends and family. He gave up being annoyed after seeing me carrying Twilight – in bed, in the car, at work – he just indulges me now, because he does get some benefit out of it *wink*.

    I do thank LTT and LTR for giving us ladies a forum to discuss/ obssess over Twilight and Rob. Thank you Moon and UC!

    I have never seen that video. (I don’t watch TV. Tweed Serious). It’s makes me first-hand embarrassed to be a Twihard.

    Welcome Hezaire! At first I thought you said he busted you with your Twilight purse, instead of busting you with Twilight IN your purse. Big difference. The rest of your email sounded so normal that I was confused until I reread that sentence. Whew! I’ve seen some of the purses out there and, well, I just didn’t want to be 2nd Hand Embarrassed for you when we’ve only just met.

    Your Unicorn is a keeper! I’m working on a Unicorn of my very own. Of course he’s quite a bit younger than me so that would make me a cougar. Insert joke about Edward’s favorite food here.

    Welcome to the elusive club, my husband rolls his eyes and leaves when I attempt to talk about things. You Have found a winner!
