The situational comedy is a half-hour of pure comedy gold.
Sure, there are repetitive storylines and they might be overdone, but we love them regardless. We see ourselves in these quirky, but lovable characters who make mistakes, then not-so-seamlessly weasel their way out of them.
Proving episode by episode that mistakes are funny, and not all shows are uncomfortable to watch with your parents.
So, here are the ways you can make your life as funny and charming as a network TV show:
When you have just ended a relationship, find a friend or confidant to sit on your bed with you; talk it out. Hug a pillow, take in their words, let out small smile and feel better.
When you arrive home from work, the mall, the gym, etc, be sure to announce it to your house, even if it's just to your cat. Simply yell "I'm home, Everyone." Wait for reactions.
Sing in the shower, a popular song that is equal parts embarrassing, equal parts hilarious.
When getting ready for a night of clubbing, ask your friends to make "ooooh" noises at your outfit, hair and overall hotness when you emerge from the bathroom all gussied up.
Develop a catchphrase. For example, "Sweet Niblets" and "You've got it dude" are taken, so choose your own, like maybe something more Millennial based- and hip, like "Where da wifi at tho?"
Make fun of someone in your life profusely, it's funny. Plus, they love it.
Be weird and awkward around every single good looking male you encounter and wait for them to think you're great even though you are acting like an actual psychopath. They will find your nervous maniacal l laughter adorable, your crazy family? Endearing!
Hide under the table at a restaurant upon seeing someone you don't want to see. It is always better to embarrass yourself than endure a 3 min awkward conversation.
Drink wine during the day, it's fine. It's not a drinking problem, it's classy.
At some point in your life, decide you like two guys; then spend a good day or two, trying to figure out which one is better. They won't mind, they both want you. They will simply puff out their chests and insult each other until you make up your mind.
Lose something important, but make finding it an adventure.
Take offense when someone doesn't like you. Everyone likes you, you must change their minds. Hilarity ensues.
If you are being slutty, own it and work it.
At brunch, drink mimosas like you're trying to put off a hangover. You never drink this much, what happened last night? Let your friends remind you. Cue hilarious flashback.
Constantly find new ways to joke about being poor.
Become a writer.
If you ever run into a crush from high school that never paid attention to you, ask him out. Question if this chance encounter is fate. When you find out he's done nothing with his life since high school, except open up a failed smoothie shop, realize there's no connection.
Be the kind of friend that gets your friend's into trouble, but gets them out of it, all in the same day.
Have an arch nemesis, make sure her name is as annoying as she is, like "Brittany" or "Jessica" or any pop star name really.
Fall a lot, and then get back up, both physically and metaphorically.
Look out for the guy that's been under your nose the whole time, you just might be in love with him. Or your two best friends could be secretly dating behind your back. In which case, you get to buy an ugly hat and retro sunglasses to play private investigator.
You will crack the case; you will wear a fake mustache. You will laugh.
When you toast, make it heartfelt or laugh out loud hilarious.
So, you see, it's really not that hard to live your life like a sitcom star. Chances are, you already have a little bit of star power in you. We watch sitcoms because they are relatable, which means we tend to see ourselves in the characters.
Except Hannah Montana, no one really relates to that 'double-life, living in Malibu, choosing to go to school over staying home and being rich' life, but I digress.
Live everyday like millions of people have your day recorded on their Tivos and you will never have a boring day.
