Why is it that so many people my age watched and loved “the Golden Girls” when they were young? It’s strange that a show about golden-aged single women living together in a retirement complex in Miami would appeal to so many kids. (how did that premise even fly off the pitch table???) But I guess the pastel colour palette and the inherent safety of a sheltered retirement home appealed to our young sensibilities… Anyway, this is a quote from one of the episodes, and I think my mom will really dig it for mother’s day.
