Anyhoo, while I re-reading the series I kept asking myself this time honored question.
Why do I, a woman who's a little too close to forty-years-old for my personal comfort read these books. Seriously, not only do I read them, I re-read them more often than I'd like to admit. Why do I do this when I can see every single flaw in them?
WHY, WHY, WHY! What is wrong with me people???????????? Am I an adult or a tween?
In despair, I racked my brain looking for answer . . .
Then, the skies opened up, angels began to sing, and I realized to my horror what drew me to these books.
OME! I WAS BELLA SWAN WHEN I WAS YOUNGER!
Let me count the ways . . . .
I ignored my friends and always had my face stuck in a book.
My parents were only blips in my existance.
I never realized how amazing I was and how many people admired me.
I tossed over boys who really cared about me for the wrong man with the nice packaging.
I sat in my room forever reading books and listening to music, ignoring the world around me.
I whined, bitched, and moaned about everything. ( . . . Umm, sometimes I still do this one!)
I took everything for granted.
I expected a man to swoop down and save me.
I thought my life was worse than what it was.
I didn't have any direction in my life until my cousin (who's my age) got pregnant at Senior Prom and didn't go to college. I was horrified because she got accepted to MY dream school. I thought she was a fool and I had a 'oh hell no, that is so not going to be me' moment. So I got my life together and joined the Army. (Side note: Umm, the baby is now a senior in high school, super smart, has all the little girls chasing after him, and is built like a defensive back though he's never played football. And my cousin went back to school and works for the public school system as an administrator.)
Now, I realize reading these books takes me back to that time. So, I guess I can't snark on Bella anymore, because I think I was worse than her when I was a teenager!
If you haven't read them, why not? I can promise you, they're like crack, once you get started you can't stop no matter how bad you know it is for you! Seriously!
What? I surprised you? Oh don't let me stop you, finish undressing!
Anyone out there? HELLO! This is what I want for Christmas. Not to mention New Years, Valentine's Day, My Birthday, Easter . . .. Shall ...
