EVEN HUMANS CAN SPARKLE
I'm marking this as anonymous because this story makes me blush more than Bella, and I'd be mortified if any of my friends found out.
My girlfriend is a BIG fan of these Twilight books. And one day we were on a date, and we were walking through the park after dinner. She and I were talking, and the subject of Twilight came up some how. She was telling me how Edward was the perfect guy. I asked what made him so perfect, and she replied with a long list of things, including
"He loves Bella so much he'd die for her, he's a vampire, he's SUPER strong, and he SPARKLES!"
Well, I was interested in becoming the perfect guy, and I'm not exactly super-strong, nor in a situation to die for my girlfriend. So I came up with another way to make her realize that I could be close to perfect, too.
I went home that night, raided my little sister's craft box, and found some glitter. I sprinkled the bottle all over myself; my arms and legs, my feet, even my hair! Then I walked over to my girlfriend's house (she happens to be my neighbor) climbed up to her window (using a ladder that I brought from my house) and knocked on her window. She looked a little surprised to see me at her window in the dark, but she let me in anyway.
When I stepped through her window and she turned on the lights and saw the sparkles, she was thrilled. She proudly proclaimed me to be as perfect as Edward; vampire or not.."
