The One With Why It's Always The One With #sol15


Every Tuesday, I participate in the Slice of Life challenge at Two Writing Teachers. If you want to participate, you can link up at their Slice of Life Story Post on Tuesdays or you can just head on over there to check out other people's stories.

Not that long ago, someone asked me why my Slice of Life post titles always start with "The One With..." and I never thought to explain this!

See, I happen to be a huge Friends fan. I watched it all through high school, college, and then after college until the finale. My senior year in college I lived in a townhouse with three close friends and my now-husband/then-boyfriend. Thursday nights, we would huddle together in our living room and watch the new Friends episode together. Even after I graduated, I would go over to one of my former roommates house to watch Friends with her. 
To this day, I crack up any time I hear the word, "Pivot!" 
And I can't tell you how many books I've read where the main character falls in love 
and I'm so happy for the character and think, "He's her lobster!"
The older I get, the more I love Phoebe and her carefree spirit. She always cracked me up on the show but one of my favorite episodes is when she runs past Rachel in the park and she runs like she's still a little girl. It's awesome. By the end Rachel decides to go for a wild run, too. It kind of reminds me of Mr. Tiger Goes Wild
Here are some of my favorite Friends episodes:

The One With The Baby On The Bus - where Phoebe first sings the Smelly Cat song
The One With The Halloween Party - where Ross dresses up as Sputnik
The One With All The Resolutions - when Ross has a leather pants fiasco
The One With All The Thanksgivings - where Joey breaks out the maternity pants!
The One With The Embryos - Miss Chanandler Bong (enough said)
The One In Barbados (part 1 and 2) - where Monica's hair gets big
The One With The Jellyfish - do you know what to do when you get stung by a jellyfish?

So that's the story of why all my Slice of Life post titles start with, "The One With..."! I've actually been watching through all the seasons of Gilmore Girls and I think Friends may be next.
