F.R.I.E.N.D.S is the one sunshine I truly live by.
The quirks of Phoebe Buffay, the awesome fusion of sensitive and strong in form of Rachel Green, the annoying yet funny squeals of Monica Geller, the wit of Chandler, the kissable hopeless face of Ross Geller, and oh my such dripping adorable dumbness of Joey Tribbiani; I am more than happy to have these fictional friends in my life.
After all, they never ever fail to fade my blues. And I am sure, so is the case with you.
F.R.I.E.N.D.S for us is our go-to sitcom series. Be it just another night-in or a strictly me-time after a day spent plodding in office, F.R.I.E.N.D.S is where our heart is.
