I was playing on Pinterest this evening (really, that is a time sucking site, if there ever was one) and remembered I wanted to find a quote from Sex and the City. Yes, it is a girly show and it is only on in repeats now and let’s not even discuss the second movie, k?
I ended up finding several quotes that still make me laugh and thought, well, why not do a small series of blog posts based on the quotes? So there will be one, probably weekly for the next six weeks or so.
Why? While I cannot relate to the fab clothes, shoes, apartments or NYC, the basis of the series is what drew me in and my friends. It all began with an idea of gathering some girlfriends, have dinner and drink wine while watching the show. And boy, did we ever drink wine! I think at one point we could have lined my balcony with the bottles we went through (after a season, not just one or two episodes).
What I could relate to was the relationships; with my friends, with my boyfriends and career challenges. I could also relate to each of the characters (well, Samantha was always a stretch for me, blunt, to the point, crude sometimes, why yes, that is me. Overly friendly with the fellows, not me.) It was a series that finally pointed out that us girls will, at times, have discussions about our relationships and everything that could possibly go one behind closed doors. And who couldn’t relate when Charlotte went out on a date with a perfect on paper guy who was a horrible kisser or the time she dated someone who had anger management issues? Or the many times Carrie went back to Big and she would get hurt, all over again?
While our lives were never that dramatic, we enjoyed being together, laughing, eating and cringing at something that happened in that week’s episode. Ladies, I miss our Sunday nights together! But times have changed and as you spend those nights with your hubbies and babies (and babies to be!) we can all look back on our younger years and smile. We did it up right. . .
