There was a time when I thought I should have gone and been a part of all the craziness. Then there was last Tuesday night. I had my first experience with the real true "Twihard" fandome. Can I say....never again? The actors that play Victoria, Laurent and Jacob were at my mall on Tuesday night. All the crazies gathered outside my store about 2 hours before the actors even got there. It was a very eventful evening as I listened to them scream and chant "Jacob" for approximately 4 hours. The funniest thing I saw all night was a girl sobbing while her mother comforted her. Why you ask? She met Jacob...oh JACOB...JACOB!!!! AHHHHH...JACOB!
One of my sales associates was a part of all this madness. She is way more obsessed with the series than anybody I know. She even came back from the signing and said it was totally crazy. Especially with all the little teenagers high-pitched screaming all night long! She stood in line all night long to get a poster of Victoria, James and Laurent signed. But, umm....is there someone missing? Jacob wasn't even on the poster. WHAT?
Aside from all my friends I have not met any grown ups that are Twilight fans. Then the other night in my store I overheard, said sales associate, talking about Twilight to one of our clients. I looked up because I was wondering why in the world she was doing this. When she saw that I was paying attention to her she said, "she likes Twilight too!" I was so excited to finally meet a fellow grown up Twilighter, one would have assumed I was one of those crazy fans standing out in the cold!
So, will I go see the movie? Yes. Will I go for the midnight showing? Most definitely not! Will I go sometime opening weekend when there is more likely going to be more adults that rabid teenage fans? Most absolutely yes!
