The last few days of my life in the form of a bad sitcom... plus or minus a cast list. (minus)

So, I've never written on this website before. Beth convinced me too. It took me awhile to actually get around to doing it. I haven't had much to write about lately, which I usually don't like to admit, since I want to be a writer. But I guess everybody gets writer's block. I have had some pretty shitty things happen lately though. I almost felt like I was on a really bad slapstick sitcom.

The sitcom, first off, would have a series premiere (obviously). It would consist of an old friend coming into town and me hanging out with him and having a good ol' time. There would be assorted laughs in there through various bits of sarcasm and insults... and if that didn't keep people laughing, watching us watch The Office would. Also, we go to a pizza place where one of the cooks accuses us of trying to scam a second pizza out of the store, just because we're teenagers. I flip out and tell the cook that she shouldn't descriminate against teenagers. I would be directly quoted as saying "NO ONE LIKES BEING DESCRIMINATED AGAINST!!!" Then, I'm quoted all over other TV shows and the internet, due to my explosive exclamation. That's the first episode.

The second one would be me trying to hang out with my friend again but I keep getting the overwhelming feeling something's bugging him, cause lets face it, he appears to be ignoring me. So that conflict right there, will bring my second episode into a 2-part cliff hanger. Also in this episode, a friend ditches me for lunch while I make a few new friends (and a new enemy) at the school newspaper club.

In the third episode, I further contemplate why I'm being shunned by my friend. Nothing new develops. Just more ignoring. (I know I said that this conflict would be resolved in 2 half hour episodes, but I've just decided that the whole first season is going to be about that.) In the third episode, I go to the mall and buy some new clothes for school with my MOM. I'm feeling nice so I pay for a haircut for her, since most of the humor in this episode is her relentlessly complaining about how she's growing her hair out and has no idea what she's going to do with it.

The fourth and final episode of the series (because at this point it's so bad it goes on hiatus), I go to class the next day and get a bloody nose in the middle of a lecture and get blood all over my brand new jeans. It's like the movie "Carrie" gone "crotch". It wasn't pretty. Still no word from my friend.

There's tons of cliffhangers, so I'm pretty sure the station will pick up the series again. We've got to know why my friend's ignoring me! And what about that new enemy in newspaper club? Who's the ACTUAL better writer? Only time will tell!

That was seriously the lamest thing I've ever written.
