*While I was watching Sunset Boulevard one night I was listening to Joe and Betty describe a story for a movie script. If you have seen the movie you may know what I am going for, but for those who haven't I will not spoil it. The general idea was not mine alone, though I have been intrigued by the notion since watching the film.*
It all started one day while I was in fifth grade. My mom was re-married and I didn't really know my new dad at the time, (don't worry we are awesome now all these years later) I was sick at home one day and watching whatever was on TV, if you were sick from home back then you know what was locally available. My dad came in and looked at the TV and asked me if I liked what was on I shrugged and told him , "Not really." He went back to my parents' room and came back with a set of VHS tapes and he popped one in. It was Season 1 of FRIENDS, yes people we have LIFT OFF.
It is hard to explain... so I guess I'll just start at the beginning...
