Five Memories of Friday


“My mum always used to buy a record every Friday.”– Elton John

“I’m half Puerto Rican, and every Friday we have rice and beans and chicken in my house – so that’s like a very Latin staple. It’s just so comforting. I look forward to every single Friday because I just can’t wait for my rice and beans and chicken.”–Victoria Justice

“I understand what’s it like to work all week and on Friday night just want to go and leave your brain at the door, buy some popcorn and be thrilled by something.”–Don Cheadle

“Happy Days, which we did for 11 years, we did with three cameras in front of a live audience. Very special. We had a party every Friday night. The boys, Ron, Henry, they grew up on that show.”– Marion Ross

“That smell of freshly cut grass makes me think of Friday night football in high school. The smell of popcorn and cigar smoke reminds me of the stadium. The cutting of the grass reminds me of the August practice.”– Garth Brooks

    1. I can’t even think of one! Now you’ve made me sad. I remember Saturday morning cartoons and building forts and eating biscuits with butter and molasses.


      1. Don’t be sad. I needed a little prompting from your second post to remember any of mine,and they were from when I was real young. Butter and molasses on biscuits. Sounds wonderful.


  1. took me a short bit to get that they’re ALL someone else’s quotes. (You don’t look half Puerto Rican.) Don Cheadle fan here. Do you remember Picket Fences? Loved that show.

    Happy Friday, Kerbey. No memories here, either, so don’t feel bad. We’re so old it’s hard to remember that far back.


  2. What a beautiful post, Kerbey.

    In my pre-driving teen years, Friday night was closing my bedroom door, tuning my stereo to
    WPLJ and TV to channel 7 at 11:30 p.m. and watching and listening to the simulcast of “In Concert.” I felt like a rock rebel.


  3. Friday night… Friday night… there no feeling like the release of work or school. We never had any kind of Friday night ritual. in fact, our family had very little in the way of rituals. I suppose that’s why I’m less family-oriented?
