Teen Bites Students - Dad Blames "Twilight"
Did a Middle School student take Twilight" too seriously?
His dad thinks so.
This after a 13-year-old boy gets in trouble for allegedly biting 11 students.
It sounds crazy but thats the story out of Des Moines.
I guess had he caught her smoking pot, he could blame that on twilight too.
Twilight is a movie?
When I was in school that kid would have come home short some teeth!
what the heck is “Twilight”?
I thought it was full moons that caused that.
Its a teenage vampire flick. The teenage vampire is so dreamy. Anywho save your money it ain’t worth it or the loss of two good hours that you could have spent chiseling ice out of the freezer.
Is THAT where he bit the eleven students???!!!
Its a series of books, and (so far) one movie.
That’s nothing. I once knew a lycanthrope who turned into a half-man/half-oyster creature under the full moon.
It was quite disturbing.
If that moon is full, you better stand back.
If he really took “Twilight” too seriously then Daddy and his teachers have failed to teach the difference between reality and fantasy
oh, for the “good ol’ days” when 13 yr. olds limited themselves to “sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll”
LOL! How are you, Enchante?
Oh those good ole days.
BTW, Twilight is so cool (in this house) ;) I’ve kinda sorta read the books but haven’t watched the movie in full yet. Heh, now I know what my parents went through.
I kinda sorta read the books too. They were too giddy to actually read through.
I hear you. I thought Bella was so whiney and annoying. A few of my kids thought so too. But they enjoyed the books and the movie. I haven’t seen the entire movie yet.
I've read them all. A cousin asked me to. The first book was the worst for all the swooning ick.
Given what I've seen on other message boards, I'm astonished by all the, apparently unfulfilled, adult women sighing over the story. It's nauseating.
A-MEN! After reading the first book, I sent an e-mail to my cousin and niece (weepy-swooners) exasperated that I was one who had to play the feminist. Edward was a stalker and too weak to stay away from a young damaged girl. I find it distrubing how many teens are finding this romantic.
The books and the movie are very big with Teenage girls and their moms.
I like #2 and #3 better. There were more interesting characters. But it is pretty much pablum.
LOL! True. I found myself being the “feminist” type, too. WTH?
It helped (in my case) that my two oldest were reading different books in the series and asking each other questions and laughing while reading. The two youngest have read at least 2 of the series.
Anyway, I don’t think all teens are finding it romantic, other than once the first movie was released and Edward or Jacob was HOT in their minds because of the actors who played the characters.
I like to think that most teens realize this is fiction/entertainment.
I had a discussion with another mother who also read the books and I kept saying how Bella was an insipid little twit and Edward was spooky. She said I was jaded and told me to stop viewing the story from the perspective of a middle aged woman and to think of it as an escape/fantasy/fiction that it is. So I did and still think Bella is whiney, annoying and an insipid little twit and Edward is spooky.
My cousin is a single adult woman. She can be foolish. My niece and her friends are way too invested in it, IMO. But I'm not her mother :)
