In the Twi-wonderland are many Twihard mums, but here I'm talking about their mums, women in the age of 60++. A few weeks ago, Mommy Vanquish called and ask if I've read the Twilight series that is in all the bestseller lists. Sounds like a simple question..., right?
But omfg, what should I answer ??? Will she likes it?? Will she hate it??? I'm not sure how I'd react if she'd hate it, hate Robward - oh no no no - I couldn't stand that!
So I told her: „Look, this is a very romantic teenager love story, the main characters are 17! And it's about vampires." I tried to make clear in what she's getting into, but she didn't mind and just started reading.
Honestly, I was really nervous. But Mommy likes it!! My 62 year old - old fashioned - mum likes Twilight! She read straight through New Moon and Eclipse and last weekend I gave her Breaking Dawn!
Shit, this is cool! This is so awesome!
While I stayed at my parents place last weekend, I ask her if she'd like to see the movie. Yes yes yes!!! We told the men to go and play somewhere else, so that we can watch it without unqualified comments from them.
It was great! However, she just sees the movie with different eyes:
She loves KStew and Bella: „Oh she's so gorgeous, Bella is such an adorable girl - she always cooks for her dad and cleans up the house... „
What a benchmark...
She took a quick glance at me since she thinks I'm not the perfect housewife. However, this is undeniable true!!! Ok, this separates us. I don't care if Bella is a good cook or a perfect housewife. Honestly, I don't care about Bella at all.
Anyway! When the cafeteria scene came, she started saying:
Mommy V.: „Oh this is Edward? I thought he'd be prettier.."
Mrs. V.: „Stop! Not another word on this! Keep it to yourself. Rob's great! He is the perfect Edward. Period." Normally, I'm more tolerant, but I lost this somehow on my way into A.T., specially with everything Twi/Rob-related!
But she loved the movie and cried just like me. I'm happy that I infected her with the Twi-virus, although she was somehow immune to the Robward-virus... Doesn't matter, then he's all mine and she can have Carlisle, she really likes Carlisle. That's fine with me.
