A Golden Girls Moment

I love Fridays.  Absolutely love them.  When I was in college, Fridays meant that we went out and celebrated the beginning of the weekend.  Now, I just want to sit on the sofa in my hoodie, drink a Shock Top (my favorite beer) with a wedge of orange and watch a few episodes of the Golden Girls.

I have a pretty unique talent.  I can take almost any conversation or thought or experience and relate it to a Golden Girls moment.  I've seen every single episode multiple times.  I'll hear something or reflect on something that happened to me during the day and tell my husband about a time when Dorothy, Blanch, Rose or Sophia did something or said something funny.  He laughs.  I'm not sure if it is because he actually thinks I'm humorous or just a little bit crazy.

One of my favorite moments is when Dorothy and Rose are having a pretty serious conversation about how animals are dying as forests are being destroyed.  Dorothy shakes her head and says "It's a shame."  Rose replies, "You know what's a real shame?  When you sit down and your thighs squish out to twice their size.  Now that's a shame".  I agree, Rose.  I agree.

Happy Friday!


  1. What a great post! I've watched a lot of The Golden Girls, but I don't remember that line. It's hilarious! What's weird is that I was thinking that very thing about fat thighs this morning. Loved this post!

    Happy weekend. ☺

    1. What is about being in our 30's that we start thinking of things like this? The joys of womanhood.
