I owe this obsession to Adiel and Heather. Adiel who talked about the books and Heather who said, "Edward, bite me!" This is all your fault!
This morning on the local FOX station there was much hype about Breaking Dawn. They interviewed a woman who works at Barnes and Noble. She was excited to have thousands of insane Edward fans waiting to enter her store at midnight. (I rolled my eyes...I'll just bet she was excited. Crazy people should be home in bed is what she was really thinking.) Anyway, she said, "The decision will finally be made. Will Bella choose Edward and be a vampire or stay a mortal and choose Jacob?"
I'm sorry....lost it there for a second. Let me do some deep breathing.
Is there even any thought that Bella may choose (cough, choke) Jacob? Granted I am only half way through Eclipse, but I have never thought that Bella would be making any kind of choice. Maybe I just need to read a little longer to find out that she is doubting her feelings for Edward. And why am I obsessing about a character in a book. What is wrong with me??
Edward has gotten to me.
My poor husband said last night that he has lost me to a book. Wednesday night I was innocently sitting on the couch reading. He was there also watching the History channel and (I thought) enjoying himself. He threw a pillow at me. I laughed and threw it back. He threw it at me again. Geez, can't he see I'm reading? He threw it at me again so I threw it back. Once again he throws it at me BUT this time he wrinkles a page in my book....there were some deep breaths going on about this time. I glared at him and I could tell he was totally scared. I am very fierce! But, he throws it at me again....and....misses me, hits my mug of ice water and it flies and lands upside down on the heater/air conditioning vent. Ice water gurgling down toward the furnace. I was aghast. Look what he had done. I ran to get a towel, took off the vent and proceeded to wipe up all that ice water. Then I stopped. What if I stuck my hand in that vent that disappears into darkness. What if there is a vampire or worse yet a werewolf or the worst of all a spider down there. I am totally nuts. But I made him clean it up and then paid a little attention to him.
I guess Edward would have to wait.
