Hello, reader. Thanks for stopping by. Here you'll find pop culture oozing out of the page, funky finds, criticisms, funny vids/pics, and just whatever I want to entertain you with.
Don't ask questions. Just take what I give you. Trust me, you'll like it.
No, I'm not married yet, but I do love Lucy! Infact I've been watching the classic "I Love Lucy" episodes all week. Apparently, TV Land gave up the show to the Hallmark Channel as of January 1st, 2009. They air the show 4-5 times a day now! (Wonder what happened there...)
But anyways, as I was surfing YouTube for classic clips of Lucy, I stumbled upon a vintage 1982 Entertainment Tonight interviewing Desi Arnaz. By then he was about 65 and looking pretty bad. He talked about things behind the scenes, how he still loved Lucy, etc. But he also mentioned that people would write fan letters to him saying that "I Love Lucy" saved their marriage. This got me thinking.
Now, my parents are having a bit of a crisis at the moment; they're almost 40 years into this marriage of theirs and things are a bit bumpy. Who hasn't wanted a divorce from their stubborn husband or frigid wife? Well, that's just not an option right now for my folks.
Here's the thing though. We watch our Lucy's every night now and it seems as though her comedic talents are relieving the pressure from this strained marriage. My father is now joining us in the family room each night and laughing along with us. We're all talking again and sort of getting along. I just can't believe it.
Could this really be true? Could Lucy McGillicuddy be a couples' therapist? :p ??
I guess by watching Ricky & Lucy's crazy marriage, people see how silly we act over the little things in life. Yeah, okay so maybe Lucy spent all their money on 2 sides of beef and then it got barbecued by accident in the furnace. Or the time she let 500chicks loose in the house and they got lost... Funny stuff, but not to Ricky. Oh no. He was furious! But, I guess as all husbands do in the end, he forgave Lucy and they made up. Sure, he was still frustrated with her, but he loved her so much he couldn't hold that hatred in anymore.
If you're reading this and going through the same marital problems, try a little Lucy. She may just be the answer to your prayers. Oh, and try living like Lucy. She just went for things and did them. You should try that as well. Live your life to the fullest and don't look back!
Let me know if this works for you cause I'd be curious to hear back from anyone. :)
