POGS

30 Jul

Not the topic of my post, but a great childhood toy, no? I think that’s where the saying “I’m playing for keeps,” originates from.

Today I’m talking to my dad on the phone and he says, “So I read that book called ‘Twilight,’ the one about the girl in love with the vampire, you know? Have you read it yet?”

Uh, no. I had no idea what it was until my 25 year old first grade teacher sister called me squealing with delight about Edward the vampire.

My dad: I don’t know, it held my attention and I just kept reading and reading, and it went so fast.

Molly: Um, it probably went so fast because it was written for thirteen year old girls.

My dad: Yeah, maybe…I finished the first one and Emily wanted me to read the second, but I said, “How much can you really read about one girl loving a vampire?” But then Emily told me that Edward wasn’t even in the second novel very much, so I said “okay.”

Here’s to mi padre starting Twilight part 2. You’re awesome.

    Ok that’t it, Arec Baldwin is the 4th least likely person to tell me Twilight is really good, so even though I think the story line is creepy/retarded, I think I am going to read it.That’s Arec, you are a champ

    1. POGS fucking ruled2. I saw the 4th book in the Twlight series as #1 on Amazon’s Top 10. The other 3 appeared further down the list, adding to my confusion. Glad to hear they might actually be quality?

    As the 25 year old, first grade teacher sister, I felt the need to speak out. When I first heard about Twilight I thought, “No way, I don’t do the vampire thing” But I finally gave in and gave it a try. I couldn’t put it down and have been reading through the series. I DID NOT stand in line at midnight on Friday to get the fourth one, but I did get it on Sat. morning.🙂 Read it!🙂
