Throughout the month of February Trash Talk has been dedicating episodes to different kinds of love and relationships. And last week’s episode highlighted one of the most important types of relationships people can have, friendship. It sounds super cheesy, and that’s because it is. But friends are very important people in your life and they should get the same recognition as a partner does on Valentine’s Day. Give a shout to the pals and the confidants in your life.
Miki and I had a hard timing finding the perfect song about friendship, considering most of the songs about friendship that we heard dealt with some sort of underlying romantic desire. But then it hit me! The greatest theme song ever written and best 40 second song about friendship was right under our noses the entire time. The Golden Girls theme song!
As a queer man I implore you to watch this iconic and legendary TV show. It is instantly lovable and re-runs will bless our televisions and laptop screens for the rest of time. I’ve already decided Miki is a Sophia and I relate heavily to Dorothy. Although in reality I might just be Bea Arthur. While I figure it out Miki and I will continue to see our friendship grow as we watch The Golden Girls when we’re bored at work.
Listen to Trash Talk live Wednesdays from 11am-12pm on UIC Radio and the RadioFX app!
