Now that kiddos are back to school, I’ve been reminiscing about my favorite September things.
Besides the fact that I enjoyed going back to school (for the first two days), there was always something that made me love September.
And that was: NEW STUFF.
Allow me to list a few examples,
- New clothes
- New school supplies
- New haircut
- New teachers
- New classes
- New climate
- New allergies
- New opportunities to pretend I didn’t choose my seat to sit next to a pretty girl
But most important of all was… NEW TV SHOWS.
I was sufficiently trained by Saturday Morning Cartoons, TGIF, and primetime reruns of Seinfeld to later pride myself in spotting a show that’d “make it” just by watching the trailer.
I clung at the chance to watch a show that crashed a plane of people onto an island and killed off main characters every couple of episodes. I beckoned my brothers to watch a comedy where the bizarre premise was to interview people who worked at a paper company. I fought with my friends to convince them that a show about a guy telling his kids how he met their mother was a tormentingly awesome idea.
Fall-time TV was the best.
As a token of my appreciation for the newness of September, I’m starting my own video channel. Season 1 kicks off with interviews of some fascinatingly ordinary people.
Stay tuned for episode 1, being released Monday, September 14 at 7:00 PM (EST).
See you Monday night.
