Transcript Bar Talk SA. S.T.CN. Page 6, 'Trankly, My Dear., by Frank Benge "LIFE IMITATES T.V." Have you ever had one of those days when your mind feels like somebody sprayed PAM on it? The sudden realization that you aren't going to be particulary retentive of anything, but the slogans on people's T-Shirts? Well, during my last period of PMS (Pam Mentality Syndrome), I was amusing my remaining grey matter with the T-Shirt slogan..."My Life Is A Soap Opera" when I suddenly had one of those moments when my mind slips gears and shifts into overdrive...and when you're contemplating a T-Shirt slogan the results of the mental activity can be rather frightening. I really don't know any Gay person who can honestly wear a T-Shirt that say's "My Life Is A Soap Opera". That slogan seems to apply to the straight world. (I base this on the fact that I've lost no friends to UFO's and have yet to wake up to discover that my whole last year was ' just a dream. . .as much as I would have liked to). After careful consideration it seems that the Gay version of that T-Shirt would have to read "My Life Is A Sitcom" (and not the Cosby show, as that's sci-fi.) For most of us, the shirt could even be more specific and say "My Life Is The Mary Tyler Moore Show". To test whether this applys to you or not, here is a guide to spotting various characters in your surroundings. Ted Baxter; The next time you're at work, take a moment and carefully observe your co-workers. If you don't go into shock from what you see, you'll realize that you work with at least one Ted Baxter. Don't be surprised if you spot a Georgette before you spot a Ted, especially if your co-workers are Gay, too. Sue Ann Nivens; This one is harder to spot (Unless' you work in a bar, where Sue Anns can be found in abundance.) Take some time with this one. You may also want to look for this one while drinking. It's not uncommon to discover that your Sue Ann is your best friend and, if you're drinking have something handy to throw whan the realization hits you. Mary, Rhoda & Phyllis" This one gets a little complicated and, therefore, takes some explanation. At one time or another in your life, you will find that you qualify as all of these characters. (this can also be called the "Sybil Theory".) Here' are who. 's how to tell when you Mary: Life was always perfect for Mary, especially in the dating department. Whenever Mary really wanted a date, she got one. The easiest way to tell if you're in "Mary Mode" is if, after a night at the bars, you get to go home with someone. Rhoda: This one's alot easier to tell. If the bar closes and you face the prospect of going home and rolling your hair...you are Rhoda. Phyllis: This one is the easiest to spot of all...but, only in retrospect. On those nights when you don't feel like going anywhere and everyone you know annoys you, chances are you're being Phyllis. If you are on the phone dishing people, then it's definite. And, if you have a lover, you get to play Murray. Unless, of course you're too busy acting like another set of Gay role models. Who? Why, Lucy and Desi, of course.
