Today, I happened to walk by a buzz. Several people were standing around gawking at a stack of books. I went over to see what was up. It was a collection of the Twilight Series from Stephanie Meyer. I have never read any of her writings, but I know this series is about Vampires.
"Vampires?" I quizzed. "Yes!" they all replied. "These are wonderful books, well written, with interesting characters." "I liked the movie" another piped in. "Yes, there is another movie coming soon!" which garnered head nodding all around.
"So," I interrupted. "Vampires are OK, but Harry Potter is out?" The looks I received let me know I had just said the stupidest thing possible. "Well of course" one started looking at the group, then back to me. "Vampires aren't real, they are imaginary. Harry Potter teaches children about witchcraft and sorcery. That is real, children must be protected from those evils." This again elicited the requisite looks around the group and head nodding.
"ah" I replied, and walked away.
