An Ordinary, Extraordinary Life, According to CherryPop

So what’s my life like these days? It’s normal. Well, as normal as it can be when you have supernatural parents, a bounty on your head, a zombie for a bodyguard, and your best friend since childhood is now a vampire struggling to deal with having to live off of blood for the rest of her life.

Okay, so maybe my life isn’t average. But I have been to the mall! I did prom and lived in a dorm at college. I know how to catch a pop-fly thanks to a baseball-lovin’, zombie-raisin’ father. I eat hot dogs and apple pie and yes, cherry pop is one of my favorite drinks. I am aware of the irony.

What I’m trying to say is that even though some parts of my life are extraordinary, other parts are pretty mundane – but a good mundane. Some of my best memories are of the three of us piled on the couch in the family room munching popcorn and watching the Padres play.

Of course later that night I’d go with Dad to the cemetery and watch him question the dead, but hey, to me that was normal.
