Me: "How's school going?"

Tween Girl: "BAD. I already have a project due."

Me: "What kind of project?"

Tween: "I have to write about what my utopia would be like."

Me: "That sounds interesting!"

Tween: "I guess."

Me: "So what WOULD your utopia be like?"

Tween: "Two things: 1) Vampires would be real. 2) I would know Hugh Jackman."

Me: "Hmm. So vampires being real would be a good thing?"

Tween: "Yes."

Me: "You wouldn't be afraid of them trying to kill you?"

Tween: "Well not ALL of them are like that."

Me: "I see. Well, Hugh Jackman is cool."

Tween: "I know." 

Good talk, kid. Good talk. 


  1. Isn't she a little young to be crushing on Hugh Jackman? (When I was her age, it was Ralph Macchio and New Kids On The Block).

  2. I dunno, I was pretty crazy about Davy Jones as a kid and he was like 40 by then probably. :P

  3. Knowing Hugh Jackman would be pretty utopian to know Hugh Jackman. When I was 11 or 12, I was all about New Edition and Tom Cruise. He was about 10-15 years older than me.

  4. See, I was so excited by the idea of a world where I know Hugh Jackman that I messed up the first sentence. lol.
