Last week SIL (sister-in-law noobs) FC sends me an email about this Twilight themed jewelry set that she just has to have. This coming from the woman who put off reading Twilight for months and then gobbled up the entire series up in 4 days mere weeks ago and is threatening bodily harm to the person who ruined Midnight Sun. Anyway, I ignored the first email thinking that surely she would come to her senses, but then on Monday morning I get the following email.
So obviously my SIL is in crisis, I mean, Twilight jewelry? I'm not hatin' or anything, but c'mon. I can only imagine that it's pretty cheap looking and probably won't help with ming reading. Plus, can I live with myself if she has Twilight merch that I don't? But am I ready to shell out that kind of money? So I shoot off the following email.

I am afraid I am losing my internal battle to not buy that jewelry set I was telling you about last week. It is $150 (which is $50 more than I expected). I SO DON’T NEED IT!!!! But it keeps calling me! I see them for a lot more than that at other places, so I am wondering if I should just buy it and gift it to myself for Christmas (yah I know 6 months from now). I have not told Brother FC, but then again he can’t say crap cause he has those lightsabers (seriously? I had no idea he was such a nerd) he loves so much and they were just as expensive! What is your opinion on my craziness?

I can definitely say, don't get the jewelry set (this coming from the girl who now has 3 Twilight dolls). I just hope that I am not too late. I mean seriously now, are you going to wear it for real? And wouldn't you like to put that money towards something else? If you really want, I now have 2 Cullen crests, so I could make earrings out of them if you would like.

I can only imagine the ridicule she would endure from the niece (her daughter) who started the Twilight mania. So, did I do this because I really believed that SIL FC was nuts for spending $150 on Twilight merch (good cop) or was I secretly coveting the jewels and wanted them all to myself (bad cop)? Hmmm...we'll have to see what Amazon is delivering later this week, heh!
Comment or DIAFOC (just try and figure that one out, I dare you!).
