Vampires ruined my marriage!

There are groups, packs if you will, of middle-aged women descendingΒ  upon North American hotels in hot pursuit of the rock star, (Let’s just let him keep the title, shall we?) Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits. They call themselves Noonatics and one can only assume they view this behaviour as a doorway to their carefree youth.

Let’s face it, females of any age can be very extreme in their adoration of idols. Take the vampire craze the world is in the midst of, for example.

No seriously, take the vampire craze. I’m begging you.

When I married my young bride 16 years ago I was under no illusions as to the reality of modern marriage; people start out madly in love and then things cool off, but hopefully stay lukewarm.

Well my marriage is hot again, I’m happy to say. Problem is, a bunch of undead, supposedly cold-blooded vampires are supplying the heat!

My wife as never been one for fads or fantasy movies or sci-fi television shows. So imagine my surprise when she took an interest in the Twilight novels and then the movies. Being a lifelong comic geek I thought, “Great, she’ll soften her views on my interests then.”

No, I’m still a geek in her eyes and the only poster on our wall is one featuring Stefan and Damon of The Vampire Diaries. No one can approach the wife Thursdays at 8pm or when she’s devouring a vampire novel. And god forbid someone should raise the issue of which has more bite, Twilight or Vampire Diaries – you’d have to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer to survive that confrontation.

Until next time, this is The Hook, begging you, please don’t be a douchebag – or a vampire.

About The Hook

Husband. Father. Bellman. Author of The Bellman Chronicles. Reader of comic books and observer and chronicler of the human condition. And to my wife's eternal dismay, a mere mortal and non-vampire. I'm often told I look like your uncle, cousin, etc. If I wore a hat, I'd hang it on a hat rack in my home in Niagara Falls, Canada. You can call me The Hook, everyone else does.
