From the mailbag: Stuff my guy said about Twilight
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!
