Texts with the Girls
Despite the fact that I love when the Girls were on TV and I think that was the time (1985-1992), I always wonder what things would be like if the show aired today. So much has changed; the way people communicate, meet, date, conduct business, order a pizza...the list goes on! I'm sure they would have a cordless phone, some updated furniture, a Roomba and Skinemax for Sophia, for sure! (Who knows - maybe Blanche too, although her life is basically Skinemax, but I digress.)
If the Girls were doing their thing today, I imagine they would face some typical problems people have doing every day things. For example, when the internet drops and it's not reconnecting, someone needs to reboot it. I imagine, since Blanche doesn't really even know what "blee-ock" (i.e. bleach) is in the original series, she likely would not be the most knowledgeable of the women concerning technology. Here is how I picture that whole scenario playing out via text message:
Blanche texts Dorothy
Blanche texts Sophia
Blanche texts Rose
What do you think? Would this relatively accurate of their exchanges? I plan to brainstorm more examples and report back.
