An OMG and Stupid Question #586  
First off, we hired a new kid on Friday by the name of Robin. Can't miss the kid - he has this huge head of bright, red hair (well, his hair is huge, not his head).

So the kid is the spitting image of Ron Weasley and my 14 year old daughter has been talking to him a mile a minute ever since she met him.

He got the nickname of Robin Weasley at the shop and my other daughter let it slip today. He said he was actually offended. My daughter asked why because she thought Ron was kind of cool. He said it was because (this is good) his mother writes Ron/Harry slash.

WTF?! Out of all the kids I hire in this podunck town, I hire a kid who's mother writes slash?

Curiouser and curiouser....

Before I forget Stupid Question: Are bangers a British term for sausage or are they a type of sausage?

ETA: Thanks to fiercediva for answering the bangers question.

Both! Bangers have a high bread content, and they tend to explode when you cook them unless you perforate them with a fork or something. Other sausages from other countries with more meat in them don't have that problem.

They tend to explode when you cook them because of the bread content? Oh, this could be useful.

Okay, I can work with this...

I have just got to talk to this woman! I bet she has an LJ account too! Actually, come to think of it, I did talk to her when I called to tell him he had the job.

I'll see what I can do. *winks*

Poor guy. I suppose we shouldn't tease him with some naughty Ron manips.

Oh God! Can you imagine?! Oh God. Poor kid. I couldn't even think about doing that to him *evil grin*

Seriously though, I wonder how he feels everytime his mom's on a site with Harry/Ron manips.

Well as long as he doesn't kick one of my customers, we're cool.

God, tell me about it! I've just gotta talk to this woman. The only thing is, I don't want to get him into trouble - what if he didn't want me to know his mom wrote this stuff?

And then, what if she's a bad!fic writer?

Oh God, what if she posts to Midnight Whispers now? In fact, what if she's posting there right now, as we speak...

Your new best friend awaits you. Go meet his Mom!

I think I'll talk to her in the context of "so, what are your hobbies?"

I have to meet her first. If she's one of those townie women who gets drunk at the local bars and then tells everyone in hearing range her secrets, this could be a huge problem for me. I'll have to play it by ear - see if she's someone I could trust.

*crosses fingers*

I don't think any woman with a grown son would be blabbing about slash writing all over town (especially since her slash characters are under age!), but you're right, you have to be careful when revealing your inner most secrets :)
Good luck!
