I had a gal in my office who has two daughters (12 & 15). She had to leave at 2PM today...to take the two "ladies" over to a local theater to see the next episode of the Twilight Saga (the vampire dudes). They kinda demanded to be there on opening day.
I asked her if it bothered her that this was scary. She kinda laughed and said the vampires in the Twilight movies...are never scary. These teenage girls walk around and daydream about these vampires all the time now.
I suggested this was different from the glory days when we had Frankenstein and zombies. She agreed.
It is a strange world where we live in. Vampires are "hunks" and teenage girls dream of having one around. Only in America.
