*Welcome back to our regularly occurring post we have called “How I fell for Rob” where LTR readers write Rob a letter explaining how they fell for him. Klutzy writes a letter today and have the tissues handy, or someone to hug!*
I can barely remember the exact date and how I fell for you but one thing is sure, you, Rob, made me love my husband even more. A couple of years ago, my husband had to move abroad for a better job offer. Since I loved my job back home and I didn’t like the idea of moving and living away from our family and friends, we agreed that he’ll give it a try living apart and he would come back every year. He loved the place and his new job but our distance plus the monthly phone bills become unbearable, so after all his promises and drama, I finally took pity on him, gave in, and left my job, at least to try.
Three months later, and the excitement to this new place were gone and I was dying to go home. In his desperate attempt to keep me from going back home, last July, DH (dear Husband) brought a Twilight DVD home while awkwardly telling me that ‘it might sound lame’ but all the gals in his office can’t stop gushing over this ‘Twilight thing’ so they suggested that maybe I’d like to give it a try. I’d heard Twilight before but never paid attention having known that it’s a story about a vampire. Feeling bored the next day, I watched the movie in our bedroom, thinking I’ll fall asleep anyway but boy, the moment you entered the cafeteria, I was blessed and reborn, helpless and drooling like a sixteen year old. The next day, I went to buy all four books, came home and found DH waiting for me, surprisingly handing me the same four books that I have just bought (really!). It took me five days and five nights to finish reading all the books and repeated it several times after that. DH never complained, never asked and seems so happy that I no longer mention anything about going home or getting a job. I spent almost the entire day watching interviews, drooling on your photos and lurking on every site about you. Trying to be inconspicuous, I tried to minimize our bonding moments whenever DH’s around.

One night, having dinner with those gals and their dear ones, who introduced you to my husband then to me the conversation ended up with you. It just started when one of those gals casually (she tried) suggested Midnight Sun to me (not knowing I have read and re-read it many times) and was then followed by their husbands rant on all the sleepless nights, the fights plus the additional expenses they have to endure because of you. I tried not to react with all their insults over their red-faced wives but in my defense, DH said “Seriously, if that’s what it take to have her here with me, I won’t mind a thing, she can’t have him anyway”.
On our way home, I made my confession about my ‘acute fondness’ for you and DH said he was aware but didn’t want to embarrass me as he noticed how I tried to hide it from him and he’s happy how it’s helping me get through my homesickness. I cried especially when he said he totally understands how it feels, that’s why he really tried to have me here. And that explains his patience for his totally shameless little wife’s stories about the book, about your funny interviews and those funny gals at LTR/LTT; how he even tried to read it (but fall asleep) to keep up with me saying it’s just out of curiosity why those gals are obsess about it; the new laptop he bought so that I can save some “very personal files”, when I tried to reason out that it’s unnecessary; the new I-phone I just got with the Twilight audio books; every single magazine he brought home for me while he casually says ‘Baby, isn’t it the Twilight guy. I guess you can no longer have a magazine without him on it”, and the new Twilight soundtrack cd.
Rob, I can’t thank you enough for making me realize what a good man I’ve got and for giving UC and Moon an inspiration to bring LTR/LTT gals a daily dose of a good laugh.
