Guys Say The Darnedest Things!

A funny conversation happened at my house this weekend, and because it is book related, I thought I would share.  The BF asks if he can read some of my zombie books.  I am thrilled!  I say of course!!  Which one do you want to read?

He replies, “The one with the trees.”

Yay! I think, and I run off to get my copy of The Forest of Hands and Teeth.  He wants to read one of my books!  We are, like, SHARING something that I love!  We are bonding!  I am so happy!

I hand him the book and he asks, ”Why is there a girl on the cover? This doesn’t have any of that romance crap, does it?”

I can’t help it.  I laugh at him.  Laugh! “Dude,” I explain, “it’s for teen age girls – yes, it has lots of that romance crap in it!”

He sighs, a little sad, ”See, THIS is the reason that they ruined vampires! All of that Twilight crap!  Now they are trying to ruin zombies!!! Zombies!!  Make them stop!”

    @Monique – he didn’t give it back, so I think he is actually going to read it – i am dying to hear what he thinks of it 🙂
