I’m watching Twilight over at my mom’s house and my little brother is in the room, playing some dumb game on the computer. The dinner date scene is on and he swiveled his chair around to watch. I thought, “Awww! Look at that! He’s learning from Edward!”
But I was wrong. Way wrong.
My little brother Jacob looks over to me before turning back to the computer and says, “That guy has a butt chin.”
My face instantly wrinkled in annoyance, and stuck there while I tried to figure out what to say. I felt like Bella at the end of Twilight when Edward says he’s leaving, a big stuttering mess. “Um, it’s called a CLEFT in his chin, and he’s the most handsome man I’ve ever SEEN, so shut up!” was the best I could come up with.
Without missing a beat or looking up from his game, he said, “I just think it’s really weird you like guys with butt chins, Whitley.”
Isn’t that just something someone named JACOB would say about Edward/Rob? He’s a mouthy kid.
