Random Conversations

Near the end of school my fourteen-year-old son was coming home on the bus. In front of him sat two girls of the same age. When his ipod battery died he overheard an interesting question about vampires and werewolves.

Girl #1
Who would rather date a vampire or a werewolf?

Of course being a boy, he tuned out and didn’t hear her friends answer to the question, but my twelve-year-old had a great response.

Son #2
Werewolf of course because of Taylor Lautner
(He says with a hint of sarcasm)
Actually vampires are cold and werewolves are warm and I’d rather be warm.

Son #1
I don’t think there are any girl werewolves.

Mom
Actually there are. There’s at least one. You’d know that if you read the book.

Son #1
I’ll read your book when it gets published, but not that book.

Side Note: Did I mention my boys don’t read, but I did buy four books for them to read this summer, we’ll see if it happens.

Son #1
Reading over mom’s shoulder
Like that’s going to happen.

A mother can always hope.

Oh he'll read your book when it gets published! That's adorable. (I'll read your book before it's published.)

Ha ha ha! I'm with Jessie! :-)

Laura Pauling said...

I'm sure boys are befuddled with the whole vampire craze that girls are on. Thanks for sharing.

Aubrie said...

This is very cute! I hope they do give those books a try.

MY SON, who RARELY reads, has read both of my books.

He'll do it.

I'm just saying...

AND SO WILL I!!! But only if you sign it!

Patti said...

Jessie: Most definitely, you might be the only one.

Shannon: It was rather funny, especially the way younger son talked about Taylor Lautner.

Laura: They really are, although my neice is taking her friend to the new movie and he's 21.

Aubrie: I think there might have to be some bribing involved.

Patti: I will definitely sign it. Thanks so much.

Ah, too cute! My boys don't read either. They'd rather eat glass, but I hope they'll read my books when they are published. Of course, they may have kids of their own by then. :)

Janna Qualman said...

ROFL! Love this exchange.

Side note: My oldest (7, and so she doesn't really understand the whole Twilight thing--fine with me) refers to Edward as "the one who can't comb his hair." LOL!

Terri Tiffany said...

LOL !
Are you the patti that spells it that way? I know two pattis visit my blog but the link doesn't work!

Patti said...

Susan: That about sums up my boys feelings on reading, although I'm still holding out for a miracle and I'm sure your boys will be reading your book a lot sooner than that.

Janna: That's hilarous, kids see things in such simple ways.

Terri: There are two Pattis. First there's me (Patti Nielson) and then there's Patti Lacy, who commented above. Both of us are awesome.
