The 80’s were gone before I knew it, but there’s one thing from that decade that has stayed with me all along the way.
A family. They have become like family to me as well.
They’re yellow…

The Simpsons
I vividly remember when I first saw The Simpsons on our tv screen. They were advertised as a cartoon for adults. Something like that had never been done before and it didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out it was going to be an enormous success.
The four-fingered family soon became a household name across the globe.
I wanted to be like Bart and begged for spikey hair, Chuck Taylors and felt the urge to buy a skateboard and spray cans.
Eventually I never became him physically, but his mischievous spirit has become a second nature..
As I write this, I’m 32-years old and still watch The Simpsons religiously.
It feels like a warm bath to see the family go through their daily struggles and end up stronger than before.
They’ve thought me so many things in life and I’m sure many of my peers feel the same way.
I’m glad to be a part of the generation that has witnessed the birth of The Simpsons and feel proud our relationship has stood the test of time so well.
I sincerely hope Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie will be around for many years to come..
Aye Caramba!
