The Size of the Pool
So, I got made fun of the other day for saying that I used to have crushes on Candice Bergen (Murphy Brown) and Phylicia Rashad (Mrs. Cosby/Huxtable).
So, someone said that perhaps I liked smart women. A news reporter, a lawyer, etc. That made sense to me at first, but then I realized something and changed my defense to the following:
Ranking is a simple matter of human nature. I didn't really have a crush on Murphy Brown, nor did I have one on Mrs. Huxtable. I simply ranked them each a respective first in each of those sitcom worlds they inhabited for those 30 minutes a week.
If Candice Bergen suddenly changed shows, to Full House for example, she would obviously be trumped by Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky).
And if Lori Loughlin came to my house to visit, she would of course be trumped by my beautiful wife.
