You know, the show Friends is my absolute favorite show. People who know me well understand this very much. I’m actually annoying. I can recite almost every line to every episode. There was TEN seasons. I own all of them. I continue to watch re-runs on TV and talk along with each character. My husband…my poor husband. He thinks I’m sick. Maybe.
The point I’m trying to make is that every episode Friends has ever made is titled the same way. Every title begins with “The one with…” I find it genius that they were able to do this for ten years. Do you see where I’m going with this??
Yes, from now on, I am going to try my hardest to name the rest of my blog posts starting with “The one with (or that)…” It’s not going to be easy. But I accept the challenge.
One of the reasons I love the show so much is because I can literally take any moment I’m in throughout my day and relate it to a Friend’s situation or specific line. It’s honestly a gift. I will be having a conversation with someone and at any time a line will pop up in my mind that could easily be said. Of course, I hold back. Unless it’s someone I know who will appreciate it.
For some, it may seem like I don’t live in reality when I do this. What I say to that is “Could you BE anymore wrong?” If you know the character Chandler, you understand what I just did there. For me, it actually keeps things light. I find it makes times during the day more fun because, let’s face it, it’s the funniest show ever. Who doesn’t want to laugh throughout the day?
I mean, it’s not like my mind is living in a world of Friends. It’s just nice to make light of situations and to find ways to keep your sanity. If you’re so serious all the time what kind of life is that?? Sitcoms are funny and any problem that exists usually ends about 28 minutes later. Now that’s the way to live. Just kidding. THAT is not reality, but what I’m trying to say is, sometimes, we need the sitcom life. Otherwise, it’s going to be one long soap opera that never ends. And they literally never end…have you seen daytime TV?
Find some comedy in your life and tune in. Don’t get caught up in your soap operas. Who wants to see Dr. Drake Ramore fall down an elevator shaft on Days of Our Lives anyway? … You see what I did there?
Remember, life is beautiful if you treat it right.
