When I’m in the kitchen washing dishes and cleaning up sometimes I watch a show on the iPad.
Being in the midst of a divorce, lately I’ve been watching cheesy movies on the Hallmark channel about people who inevitably find love.
The other morning I was making breakfast and prepping some food for the day and I turned on the iPad and it was already on the Hallmark Channel but it was too early in the day for cheesy romance movies and The Golden Girls was on.
I used to LOVE the Golden Girls.
So I’m watching the show now, thirty-five 😲😲😲 years after it first debuted, and Dorothy (Bea Arthur) says something about how she is fifty-four years old.
I turned fifty-one a month ago.
I’m almost the same age as Dorothy Zbornak.
I’M A FUCKING GOLDEN GIRL.
Okay so of course I Googled Bea Arthur and she was actually 62 when she started filming the show, but still.
I’m basically a Golden Girl.
We kind of makes me think somebody should do a Golden Girl reboot.
Because while I’ll always love the original cast, chicks in their fifties in the 80’s and chicks in their fifties in 2020 are a lot different.
And I guess what they say is true.
Fifty is the new forty.
Cause even though the 1985 Dorothy Zbornak was pretty tough, if I had to throw down with her,
I’d totally kick her ass.
