Anyway, in honor of Shelby's birthday and her penchant for making me feel old, I'm going to pass on this story to you, my dear readers, so you may share in my pain as well.
One day a few months ago Justin was having conversation with Shelby. It went like this:
Shelby: Oh, I love Band of Brothers!
Justin: Yeah, it's so awesome when what's his name gets what's coming to him... who was that guy... uh... you know...
Justin: DAVID SCHWIMMER!
Justin: You know, Ross?
Now this might seem crazy, I mean, who hasn't heard of 'Friends'? Seriously. Even if you didn't watch the show (like me) you heard everyone else and their mothers and brothers talking about it all the time. You heard the Smelly Cat song. Jennifer Aniston's haircut made national news. The Friends had babies and got married or something.
Friends was on the air for ten years, from September 1994 to May 2004. Here's the thing though. Shelby was born the same year that friends debued and was 10 years old when it went off the air.
She really has no idea what "Friends" is.
Feel old? I fucking do.
