So last week, when they weren't talking about merkins over in the Quangle, they were talking about Twilight.
They were explaining Twilight over the cube wall to the New Guy, and Maricel was talking about how the vampires sparkle in the sun.
Me, I am team Jacob all the way. Nothing about the pasty Brit or the marble loins appeal to me - but oh, the sparkle! I love sparkle! But this is not about me and my sparkle fantasies.
Actually, I don't have sparkle fantasies. Or barely legal werewolf fantasies either. In case you're wondering, Nick.
So this new guy on the other side of the wall said, "Wait. They. Sparkle?"
(And of course when Kaysha was telling me I was all, duh, of course they sparkle.)
So Kaysha explained how it was written by a Mormon housewife.
Which can really be used to explain away lots of things. I know; I watch Big Love. In fact, I might start using it as my excuse.
So New Guy had questions about a couple other things, and the fact that the author is a Mormon housewife came up a couple more times...
...until Kaysha asked, because it suddenly dawned on her, "You're not Mormon, are you?"
To which he replied, "No. I'm a Scientologist."
Which is kind of the perfect answer, don't you think?
"Hahahahahahaha! Ha. Ha?" Is what Kaysha said.
Because his response to that was, "What's funny about it?"
Either he's a Scientologist, or he has an really dry sense of humor. We still don't know.
Kaysha wants to ask him if they wear special underwear.
My beef is, he's a Scientologist and he thinks it's weird that vampires sparkle in the sun? Which then makes me wonder why I'm all sticking up for the vampires. The fictional vampires.
I'm not sure what this says about any of us.
