A FANGirl's Forkstress of Solitude

Closeted Unicorn?

I accused OMB of secretly reading Twilight last night. He of course admits nothing. Here’s what happened. You decide.

Last night we went to see Monsters vs Aliens (In 3-D! So fun!). When we got home the following exchange occurred.

OMB: Oh I forgot to tell you. When I went to get our Cokes the guy’s name tag said Jasper H.

Me: (staring dumbfounded, thinking, “Kudos to him for recognizing the name Jasper, but too bad it didn’t say Jasper C,” then, “Wait, H is perfect! Wait! How did he know that?!?) I don’t think that’s his real name.

OMB: I don’t think the theater would let them use ficticious names.

Me: (gathering my wits about me) You’re reading Twilight aren’t you!

OMB: No.

Me: Well then how…

OMB: …did I know that Jasper’s last name is Hale? They said it in the movie.

Me: They did? And you just happened to pick up the one time they may have mentioned it? I don’t think they mentioned it.

OMB: Well maybe I picked it up from one of the extras on the DVD.

Me: (questioning look) And you just picked it up from that?

OMB: I’m not reading Twilight.

  3. I feel un-cool, because I don’t know what OMB stands for, lol, but he’s LYING – they never differentiate between the Hales and the Cullens in the movie! You were correct – it isn’t mentioned!

    MYSTERY AND INTRIGUE – get him out of the closet!

  4. HA! I think you are on to something… Either he’s very VERY observant or he’s secretly come over to the dark side – lol… I’m actually actively lobbying for my DH to read the book. Although he probably won’t get it and then he’ll think I am even more nuts for being obsessed than he already does…

  5. OMB=Old Man Bobby. He’s my steadman, or at least he will be once I write my book and become Oprah-rich.

    I went to a Twilight party on Saturday and told the girls about what OMB said. When we got to the part where Jessica points out all the Cullens everyone went, “Nope! They don’t mention the Hales! He’s a Unicorn!”

  6. LOL, I thought of my boyfriend when I read this. He remembers stuff like that all the time! He watched Twilight with the commentary with me and he laughed with me and swore they were all high when they did the commentary! LOL….

    Weird how they can do that huh….

  7. Yes, it is absolutely weird what boyfriends will hear, and what they won’t. 🙂
