I finished reading Twilight recently. I blame Andi for making me read it in the first place. It got me to thinking. If you were going to get yourself turned into a vampire on purpose and could pick the age you would be, what age would you pick? So of course I asked my family what they would pick.
The Girl Girl was quick to pipe up the the answer I would expect most. She said in her early 20′s, because it was “old enough but not too old.”
That about covers it. You can drive at that age, go to a bar at that age, water ski, just about anything else you might want to do.
But, if I could be perfectly healthy and have the physical edge in all respects, I might go for something closer to 40. At 40, you can pretend to have kids.
What about you? If you were determined to become a vampire, and would be stuck with the same age forever, what age would it be?
