…I will never know the answer. Because quite frankly, the situations my friends and I find ourselves in or just the ridiculous things that we say should be enough to guarantee a prime-time slot on a major network. Memo to ABC – get on this now! Between my crazy medical school friends and my current roommates – that would be a weekly 30 minutes of pure comedy. It would be like Happy Endings – but real life and unscripted.
If any of the overheard posts on the blog havent convinced you, then certainly the ones from the past two days should give you a flavor. Yes, I realize that things arent as funny if you dont hear them live. But the posts from the past two days are the direct result of hanging out with my good friend Scott.
Scott and I both started medical school in Chicago at the same time (he was at UIC while I was at Northwestern). When we met during our second year, it was like two gigantic worlds collided. Scott and I are almost the same person – even though we are kinda different. I am the product of a strongly Roman Catholic Italian family from Pittsburgh; Scott is Jewish from South Florida. We are both very white on the outside, and yet very much sassy black women on the inside. We occasionally finish each other’s sentences. And even when we dont finish each other’s sentences, someone will chime in with a witty or ridiculous comment at the end. When someone asks us to recant a story, we will often both start out with the exact same words and intonation of voice. We are both epic fans of the word “tragesty” – yes, that is the combination of tragedy and travesty. Scott’s husband Mike would often comment that Scott and I could have an entire phone conversation during which Mike only heard the following, “Mmhmm. Okayyy. You know. Gurrrl. I heard her say your momma! Heffer!” Mike would then ask what the sitch was and Scott would merely reply, “we’re going to the movies at 7, duh!”
Anyhow, enjoy the sh*t show/sitcom that is Julian and Scott by checking out some of the “overheard” posts from this weekend. And if you look back some, you’ll find others that Scott contributed to as well – circa 2007.
