I stumbled onto YouTube last night looking for something and was immediately distracted by the new Twilight: New Moon trailer. I clicked on it excitedly and settled in to watch a sneak of the movie I plan to get in line for next week. Yes, I'm well aware it doesn't come out until November. I'M NOT TAKING ANY CHANCES HERE.
Jess and I watched in awe until 1:26 seconds in. It was then we both gasped and screamed like little girls at a Backstreet Boys concert. Watch and see what I mean.* WOW.
The kid that plays Jacob is SPECTACULAR. So, we decided to look him up. I knew he was ridiculously young - too young for my old lady, leering, cougar eyes. But I didn't know HOW young too young was. He was born in 1992.
I will let that sink in for a second before I make it even worse.
I was 16. I was in Grade 10. I had my license and a job. A couple of girls in my grade were pregnant. I am old enough that this drool worthy kid could be my own son.
Something so wrong shouldn't feel so right.
*Yeah, yeah. Some of you won't care. To that, I say "Go somewhere else and leave me be."
