Welcome Back, Kotter! …Or Ummm, Julie!
By Alex McDougald
If you’re looking for clever Passover, Easter or April Fool’s Day references here, you’re not going to find any. You stopped by for a dose of that quintessential SPPR sarcasm? Well, it doesn’t live here. Nope. Not today.
I’m foregoing all of those fun, perhaps predictable, tropes to give a straightforward and heartfelt shout out to one of the best weapons we’ve got in our little Culver City arsenal…Miss Julie Seigel.
We haven’t seen Julie since December. She abandoned us right before the holidays and ran off to do something she called “giving life.” We were all, of course, skeptical, but we let her go. It’s been almost four months without her, and frankly, it’s wearing on us all. The laugh, the smile, the can-do attitude – we’re like addicts – we need it and we need it bad!
Recently, I heard a whisper that the end of this season of withdrawal might soon be over. Julie’s making her return, they tell me. If that’s the case, if my emotions aren’t being toyed with, then there’s really only one thing left to say:
MISS JULIE, WELCOME BACK, GIRL! MY. GOD. HAVE WE MISSED YOU AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO MEET THIS FACE!
