Things Just Haven’t Been the Same (Or Why I Love My Jennifer So)

19 11 2007

Here is a story about my good friend Jennifer that always makes me laugh.

About five years ago, Jennifer and I went to the movies with some guys I was friends with. We were going to see Catch Me If You Can starring Leonardo DiCaprio.

Jennifer had never met Matt and David before. I dared her to pretend that she was a huge Leonard DiCaprio fan.

Throughout the evening she mentioned her love for Leonard – especially his pivotal performance as “Luke” in Growing Pains. Matt and David were polite, although they were exchanging meaningful (as in “what a moron”) glances every time she mentioned Leonard.

The best part of the evening was when she started talking about her love for the music of Lynyrd Skynrd, but since Leonard (DiCaprio) left and they were now known simply as Skynrd things haven’t been the same.

That was the straw that broken the camels back! David looked at her and said “WHO THE SHIT IS LEONARD?”

This is one of the funniest moments in the history of our friendship.
