Hello World!

Welcome to the life and chronicles of My Jersey Boys and me, B (the only girl who hangs out with them). Our original mission was to prove that not all of Jersey is obsessed with GTL. Now it's kind of become the place where we share our random thoughts, ridiculous stories, regular quote updates, and maybe a picture or video here and there. There's always something going on...

Love from,
The one and only,
B

The Shaun T. Rebuttal

Posted by D on 4:17 PM
Friends,

I would like to set the record straight about my good friend Shaun T. Certain people (you know who I'm talking about) would have you believe that Shaun is an annoyance, a pest even. Fortunately, I have a much closer relationship with him than anybody else you know, so I can shed light on how wonderful a person he really is.

Super T (as I like to call him) is such a loyal friend. (He also goes by Stinky Tom, Slammin' Sammy, T-Bone, Big Jacked Guy, and Mark.) Shaun and I have hung out everyday (except Sundays- its the day of God* after all) for the past 7 weeks, and I can tell you he is one of the most reliable, encouraging people I have ever met (through the cord that connects my laptop to the TV in my basement).

*By God, I mean your god. My god takes his naps on Saturdays*

If you measure friendships by the amount quality time you spend with a person, then Shaun and I are best friends. I see him for at minimum 40 minutes a day. Recently, we've been hanging out for over 50 min a day. Shaun likes me so much that he asked me a few weeks ago if we could spend more time together. Obviously, I obliged, and the time we spend together has become even more valuable. Here are my top 8 (I couldn't make it to 10) favorite things about Shaun T:

1. He's black. Everybody knows you become 65% cooler (proven by science) when you hang out regularly with a black guy.

2. His schedule is flexible. Shaun can hang out whenever I have time. If I want to say hello when I get home from work, he's ready to go. If I only have time really early in the morning, Shaun will wake up early with me with no questions asked. If my schedule is really booked on a certain day, he will rearrange his schedule with no advanced notice.

3. He doesn't care who I bring along. I was introduced to Shaun T. by C (who I thank regularly for the introduction). C and I started calling Shaun pretty regularly back in early June, and soon we started inviting CD, R, and T to join us. Although I'm the only one who sees Shaun everyday, the rest of the guys also have a very good relationship with Shaun. Shaun had no problem with C and I bringing more people to hang out, even though we now have less one on one time, and everybody knows how important one on one time is to a pre-recorded relationship through the TV.

4. He is encouraging. Although Shaun asks that I give our relationship maximum effort, he always reminds me that I can take a break whenever I want to. If things are just too difficult on a certain day, Shaun let's me take a step back, get a drink of water, and get back into things when I am ready. It's nice to know that I have a friend who is looking out for me. He doesn't want me to get hurt. I'll admit that recently Shaun T. has been a little more demanding, and it was tough at first to get used to his new expectations. But I know that I'll get used to it, and soon Shaun and I will be back to being best buds.

5. He is always smiling. Everybody has a friend who always seems upset. I don't mean people who get upset when bad things happen. I mean people who are literally always unhappy. I can honestly say that I have never seen Shaun T. in a bad mood. He always has a smile on his face. He is always excited to see me. I'll admit, it's pretty flattering.

6. He comes suspiciously close to sexually harassing women. I know what you're thinking: sexual harassment is bad. We all have that friend who gets too close to girls, breaking the bubble they told us about in elementary school. We have a word for people like this: creeps. Fortunately, Shaun T. is not that guy. However, he is the guy who does all the things that creeps do without becoming a creep. How does he do this? I don't know. Somehow Shaun can touch girls' thighs and abs without them slapping him. I once heard him ask a girl if it was the first time she wore a sports bra. Incredible.

7. He treats his male co-workers like crap. Shaun T. is very, very nice to the girls he works with: very supportive, very encouraging, very loyal. To the guys, however, he is a jerk: always questioning their form, telling them to get away, demanding they work harder. It makes me fell that much better about how strong our friendship is. I (along with C, T, and R) am one of the few guys that Shaun T. respects.

8. He is from New Jersey. Enough Said.

---------------------------------------------------------------

The point is Shaun T. is a great friend. I have his back. If you have a problem with him, you have a problem with me. But I'd suggest not having a problem with him, because he can tear you apart. I on the other hand can make you a mean peanut butter & jelly sandwich.

not once is it mentioned that all this spawned from a workout video...


I don't make fun of you for your imaginary friends.


That's because I don't have any...
