Ketchup With Us #BlogHop 41

It’s time for Ketchup With Us. Hosted by Mel and me on the 1st & 15th each month, the link-up gives you TWO ways to play: (A) Write for ten straight minutes about whatever pops into your head OR (B) Link up an old post. I’m an overachieving pain in the ass so I chose to do both!

I’m doing a weird thing today. I’m hosting my own writing prompt by answering the prompt of another. You guys remember MamaKat, right? Well, she’s asking us to “list 10 things you love about your favorite show.”

TV. (happy sigh) That seems easy enough.

Of course, first I need to pick a show. And with so many favorites over the years ranging from Arrested Development to The X-Files, this decision might prove harder than I thought. Nah. I’m going with Modern Family. Because it airs currently and is likely the show with which most of you will identify. Or, if you haven’t seen it, you’ll take my recommendation and watch it at your very next opportunity. So, without futher ado, here are …

Ten Things I Love About Modern Family:

  1. Cam
  2. Mitch
  3. Jay
  4. Gloria
  5. Manny
  6. Phil
  7. Claire
  8. Hayley
  9. Alex
  10. Luke

(Sorry, Lily. The prompt only asked for 10. Plus, at only six, you haven’t fully grown into your funny yet. But, with these talented thespians surrounding you, I expect big things in your future.)

The show makes me laugh. Consistently. To the extent that I often quote it in mixed company. When people get it, we form an immediate bond. When they don’t, I’m branded a lunatic.

So, don’t go anywhere, Modern Family. I’m not done with you yet.

Haven’t seen it yet? Or just want to reminisce with me? Here’s a great clip to get you started. (My apologies for the poor quality.)

  1. seriously…
    Broadway Musicals, Barry Manilow, Ketchup, and now Modern Family.
    I know I’d love hanging out with you.

    I was watching #MFOY last night and was laughing so hard (and Jacob was too, he loves Lily!) Such great writing and perfect timing from those actors.

  2. I gotta say Manny>Gloria as far as great lines. Other assets, well… 🙂
    Then again, I would say Manny>Mitchell.
    So Cam, Manny would be my top two.
    Let the heated debate begin!?

  3. Killing 2 birds with one stone (I never really understood that saying. Why would you want to kill a little birdie)…nice!
    I LOVE this show! It’s one of the only shows me and the hubs literally laugh out loud to. Em likes it as well. It’s hard to pick a favorite. I think Phil and Cam might be my top 2. What makes the show so great is that it’s relatable.
    They gave me a great idea to preventing your kid from running off at Disneyland, princesses shoes! I may be doing this when we go to Disneyland ourselves in a few weeks. 🙂

  4. Modern Family is a great show!

  5. Is it weird that I have never seen “Modern Family”??

  6. I am in LOVE with Modern Family! I have about 31 in my DVR querie. I am just waiting for the baby and I will watch them throughout the night!
