Vampires

Surenna, like all other American 12 year-old girls, is currently obsessed with vampires. There is a bunch of books and a movie as part of this "Twilight" series. She has been allowed to read the first few books, but not see the movie which is PG-13.

Neither my wife nor I has much interest in the details of the story, but Surenna's constant nattering about it has imparted some details onto us. For instance, the story takes place in Forks, Washington. An obscure and out-of-the-way spot even for Washington, but a place I have at least driven through.

Another aspect and probably a near-constant in vampire lore is that when a Human is bitten and thus converted to being a Vampire, they do not age beyond that point. After Our daughter told us this, my wife turned to me and said, "Lets bite Surenna now, then she will never be able to see a PG-13 movie".

Surenna's reaction: Priceless.
