I think I’ve mentioned my love for Glee here before, right? Because I love it. Just love. Seriously, it could be the best thing that’s ever happened to me. And I mean that.
Anyway, last night, HC and I were watching Glee. Despite continuing to feel under the weather, the show was – yet again – a bright spot in an otherwise not-so-bright week. And I mean that.
The performances were fantastic. Endless Love duet? Amazing. Love the song, love hearing Kurt’s thoughts on Finn and Diana Ross, love Shu’s eyes, LOVE Lea Michelle. Mr. Shu’s mash-up? Love. (Do you see why I want someone to sing a song about me?!) That fab performance of Lean on Me? Well, it was fabulous.
But the highlight of last night’s show was probably this.
Rachel, who has realized that she was walking down the road charted by Amy Fischer and, um, Pepper, put the brakes on and apologized to Mr. Shu for her behavior. Shu tried to say the things an adult recipient of teen affection should say – and I’m paraphrasing: You’re going to find someone who likes you for you. Someone who likes even those things that you hate about yourself. In fact, that person will love you because of those things.
At that moment, HC leans forward and says to me: That’s not true, by the way.
Rude. Just, so rude.
