u know how in those momentous worldly occasions, u know exactly where you were?? For example, i was in bed, awakened by a phone call from my girl to turn on the TV when 9/11 happened. i was on my way to borders to “study” with my high school friends when i found out Aaliyah had died. i was in hawaii with my hubby when hurricane katrina hit….well, i’d like to share with you where and when i fell in love with Twilight.
I was at the downtown Macy’s store with my cousin Tamara and my NBF Queenie, trying on shoes in my girl Janice’s department. Being stupid, actin a fool, waiting for our table at Cheesecake Factory, cuz that day they were serving $1.50 slices of cheesecake…. (and u KNOW damn well i’m a heffer so i had to get me my tres leches cheesecake *which they have since discontinued*)
anyways, i’m trying on shoes for Vegas, cuz i’m about to hit the town with my girls… and poking out of Tamara’s bag was this dictionary. Only it wasn’t a dictionary.. it was “Eclipse.” I had heard her talk about this series before, and i just did not understand why she would lug around a book the size of an ecyclopedia around.. was it REALLY that good? So I asked to see it while we were waiting and I read the very first chapter.. warewolves and vampires and lions and tigers and bears, oh my! i was HOOKED.
So, over a plate of pasta and cheesecake, with my cousin and my new best friend…that was the day I fell in love with Twilight. The rest, they say, is history.
I’d love to hear who, how, and when you were introduced to Twilight… Drop ur story!
