Last night, Aidan and I were discussing the merits of Alexander Skarsgaard who plays Eric Northman on the HBO True Blood series. We were debating the appeal of tall, blonde Swedish types versus what we are normally drawn to, which is generally the complete opposite. The following exchange compelled her to say, "I gotta write that down, Mom."
Aidan: "I guess I wouldn't mind an Eric Northman in my life."
Me: "I don't know. I've never dated anyone like that, the 6'4, take charge, vampire kind of dude."
I'm not saying I would ever approve of my 15-year-old daughter dating a 1,000 year old Viking vampire, but I do appreciate her stop, drop and write instincts.
(For the record: we're Team Eric. All the way.)
