We’ve even done the sex test. It turns out I’m going to be a father.
Despite it nearly being Christmas things have picked up with the house-hunting too. We’ve had an offer accepted! AND MY NEW JOB STARTS IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS.
I know, I know, three huge things happening at once? This is terrible writing! Cramming three big storyline’s into one season. Don’t the writer’s of my life know less is more?
The poster child for less being more showed up at our apartment this week.
As usual I was left feeling Chandler and Monica were a little harsh to her. Sure you wouldn’t want her at your wedding in that situation either. But she’s never quite as bad as they make out. I mean, yes it’s strange she’s taking a bath in our apartment, but at least she checked to see if we need the bathroom first!
If you ask me that’s pretty considerate by the Friends™ standards.
“The One With the Big News Part 3”
Joey’s had a new fling. And, wow! It’s Charlotte from Sex and the City™
As with Christopher from Gilmore Girls™ appearance a few weeks ago, it’s easy to imagine this as some sort of shared, turn of the millennium, East Coast universe. Or maybe I’ve just been watching too many Marvel films? Gosh I hope Central Perk isn't invaded by aliens. Early 00's Robert Downey Jnr trying to save us would not quite be the same.
This version of Charlotte seems perfect for Joey so it’s a shame things don’t work out. She even matches his secret alcoholism, drinking two beers at lunch with the girls.
The girls are a little judgemental of Joey’s batchelor lifestyle. But Rachel points out Phoebe’s also living it up, allegedly having an affair with the guy who keeps pigeons on the roof. I’m not sure if that means the pigeons are on the roof, or if they’re conducting their affair on the roof. Enough with the Charlotte stuff! I want to hear more about this secret pigeon affair!!
Phoebe’s not the only one having sex in strange places, as Ross discovers his new book has been relegated to a section of the library so unpopular students use it for sex. Joey is somehow familiar with this place. Wait is Joey having sex with students too now?!
It culminates in Ross, once again, massively breaking the boundaries of student-teacher relations after he meets the only student who read his book. Well, that’s what we’re left to assume. God I hope she was a visiting professor instead…
Real Live Sitcom Moment:
With the baby news comes a bit of fun. The second they’re out I’m gona get a vasectomy!
This leaves me in a slightly difficult position, let me take you back a bit.
Back when we had our first child, we imagined the second one would be two, maybe three years down the line. Also, I think it’s fair to say, I slightly overestimated the amount of sex new parents would be able to fit into their schedule.
And so, in the interest of saving a bit of money I thought it would be smart to work out roughly how many durex’s we’d be likely to use in the interim, bite the bullet, and buy in bulk. And I mean, REALLY IN BULK. Like, Amazon™: SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT, bulk.
All this has combined to mean I now have more condoms than I could ever hope to use before I have the snip.
Maybe the Friends™ would be up for a water balloon fight?
