After yesterday's 'heavy' blog post I was searching for the perfect light gif filled topic and I have to thank Miss Lifesaver for inspiring me today with the perfect topic.
Let's travel back in time to the early 90's: it's Friday night and you are looking forward to two days away from the boring school day routine, your parents ordered pizza and the 7:00 hour is approaching. You have secured the 'perfect' spot in the living room and have all the necessary supplies: blanket, pillow, TV remote, soda and a bag of popcorn. And for the next two hours your parents won't hear a peep out of you or your siblings, unless of course its laughter.
It's Friday night
And the mood is right
Were going to have some fun
Show you how its done
Every time I hear TGIF that memory pops in my head and I miss the simpler times when The Tanner's taught me the 'important' lessons in life with a few chuckles tucked in every Friday night. I don't even presume to know what sort of shows my students are watching Friday nights...shudder...
Here are a few more important life lessons TGIF style:
one. There is always a Dad more embarrassing than yours.
two. Middle school and high school are a time for self expression. Don't be afraid to stand out.
three. Families come in all shapes and sizes.
four. Good dance moves are essential to fitting in.
five. A good catch phrase is the ticket to looking cool or getting away with something.
And I couldn't resist ending this with a few Feeny words of wisdom:
