November 29, 2010 – Song 25

It’s hard to think about people that you don’t like in a nice way, but there is always something to find. Even if it’s something so super tiny it shouldn’t mean anything, it does.

Especially when you’d rather go in the corner with a pint glass of whiskey and show anyone that passes by what sharp teeth you have for a princess baby that is obviously right.

Here’s a fact you might not know about me. I have seen every single episode of Friends. Multiple times. Why? I don’t really know…it just sort of happened. First on prime time and then literally for years on rerun. And although I can’t say I have watched one single episode in the last couple of years I still think of these little moments occasionally and smile. What are you gonna do? It’s such a truth for me that to this day whenever I see the Friends Trivial Pursuit at the thrift store I am tempted to buy it just so I can get some use out of the fact that I will probably utter something like “Regina Falange” right before my death rattle and no one (except maybe Kate) will have any idea what I’m talking about.

And so here it goes:

The fact you called the TV show “My Funny Friends” instead of “Friends” was funny.

“Oh, what are you watching? My Funny Friends?”
“Can I delete some of these episodes of My Funny Friends from the Tivo?”

It was a hard choice. I mean who doesn’t have at a little bit of a soft spot for U2’s “One”. Or is it really just too late tonight to drag the past out into the light? (On a random side note: when I was in elementary school some hooligans spray painted U2 all over my town and all these parents flipped out because they thought it was like some kind of Nazi code or something.) Anyway, it’s not like I was going to pick Hootie and the Blowfish dude. But there were other choices.

I just that I still think of this little scene at least once a month when I open the shower curtain. Song 25.

[Scene: Chandler and Monica’s. Only Chandler is in the living room and walks to the bathroom.]
Chandler: Honey, you’ve been in there for a long time… Is everything okay?
Monica: Not really.
(Chandler enters the bathroom, and Monica is standing there in a towel, with her hair stuck in the shower curtain.)
Monica: I have a problem.
Chandler: Really? What happened?
Monica: Well, I was dancing around, and singing “No Woman No Cry” and I got stuck.
Chandler: You can’t move at all?
Monica: Oh, well, I can move… (she moves back and forth the shower curtain rail, opening and closing the shower curtain with her hair as she goes)
Chandler: If I untangle you, will you please get rid of the corn rows?
Monica: (looking disappointed) I guess so…
Chandler: (trying to untangle her) Some of these look a little frayed.
Monica: Yeah, I tried to gnaw myself free.

Sarah: That’s funny Monica. I was just doing the very same thing.
