Once upon a time there was a show called Gilmore Girls and Lorelei, the wise cracking, fast talking, coffee addict, single mother was my soul sister.
At the time of that show, I was a single mother just like her and a total coffee addict too (I still am but that’s not the point). I was trying my hardest to make it in this world and she was an inspiration.
She said thing’s like, ” Sexual harassment is bad. So no one touch anyone in any funny places unless specifically asked.”
“Stalking works better when you don’t smash your face in the window.”
“Sometime between growing up and getting pregnant. I got my ears pierced.”
And so much more… and she said it all with a straight face and dry sense of humor that is totally me.
To say that she was my hero in so many ways is true. I avoided the many boyfriends and bed hopping situations (no need to make those mistakes over and over) but she helped me keep a smile on my face during some not so happy moments.
Sadly, the show did end and not the way any of us envisioned at all but thankfully we have reruns and that little town of Stars Hollow can live on forever.
