Okay, so lets get this third episode party started! I’m your host, Samantha “Bubbles” Spice, and am an already avid GG junkie. Let’s have some fun!
We kick things off at a Friday Night Dinner. Emily and Richard are listing off the various cooks they’ve had since Heidi, the last one that Lorelai remembers hearing about. Richard mixes up a cook named Anton and one named Sophia, which Lorelai can’t let go because “one is a man and one is a woman.” Maybe they don’t identify that way Lorelai, you don’t know.
sorry I have to shave my hands
“I have to shave my hands” was added to the arsenal of Snark Lady excuses thanks to RL Stine and that instant classic, My Hairiest Adventure. Larry, the protagonist, rubs a creamy, white substance all over his body and starts to grow thick patches of hair. These two things are unrelated, as (spoiler alert!) Larry turns out to be a dog. Mid-thick-hair-growing, Larry has to run out on band practice to shave his hands and that was our light bulb moment.
Using this as an excuse has the added bonus of scaring people out of ever inviting you anywhere else again. It’s kind of like saying “Hi, I never want to spend time with you” while giving the person the feeling that they are the ones making that choice. It’s the polite thing to do.
