Why am I crying during a comedy?

If you haven’t taken the time to enjoy the sensational comedy Bonding on Netflix, then I highly recommend. It’s based on a cute grad student, Tiff, who works evenings as a dominatrix with her goofy, but lovable best friend/side kick, Pete.

The newest & second season dropped this week. It’s funny and heartfelt and well worth the binge— episodes are only 18 or 19 minutes long so it’s easy to do…

Anyways, there was a monologue given by one of the sillier supporting characters, Frank, and it immediately shook me to tears which was totally unexpected. I couldn’t find it anywhere online so I typed it up here to read it over again,

“Anything seems exciting when you think it will change who you are. Like maybe I won’t be a total waste of space if I can find something to fill that space with.

But, instead, you end up being more sad ‘cause that emptiness can never be filled with someone else, ‘cause the problem is always you.

And how do you fill…how do you fill a space in you that’s empty because of you?”

Being born and raised in the south should have made me more inbred and less tolerant, but something went wrong in the grand scheme of these damned rebels. I am; brutally honest, a bad driver with a record to prove it, a connoisseur of stand-up comedy, the eldest child, an aware procrastinator, semi-sweet, the result of my mother losing her virginity, easily excitable, a lover of music, a pretty shit liar, late to any event no matter what, myself without apology.
