Last night, Ted finally finished telling his kids how he met their mother and I feel like I’ve been sitting there on that couch with them for nine years.
A lot of people didn’t like the way it ended and I understand I really do. I didn’t love the ending either but I wasn’t surprised by it at all. I mean really, were you surprised? It’s been leading towards this for 9 YEARS and no matter how frustrated we all are about it but that’s the way it was always supposed to end.
So let’s be done complaining about it. Let’s just say goodbye and thank Ted for telling us an awesome story.
We can thank him for telling us about slap bets
Slutty pumpkin costumes
And an incident somehow involving a pineapple
“The naked man”
And woo girls
And an angry goat
And the proper way to pronounce words
Robots vs. Wrestlers
The sweet taste of liberty
And suiting up
How to pick up chicks
And the bro code
Not a father’s day
And a new dart (I mean nude art)
Jokes about fish
The best bar in New York
And the best limo driver
Why you shouldn’t get your hair done on your wedding day
And how to feel better when you’re sick
Blue French horns
And one yellow umbrella
In the past nine years, we’ve gotten to know the best couple in the world
A former Canadian teen idol
The most awesome guy
And a romantic architect
It hasn’t always been perfect but it’s not supposed to be.
Thanks Ted Mosby and Carter Bays and Craig Thomas for telling us a really great story.
I also think you should all know that I started with a shorter list but it got longer as I looked back at all the pictures and I could’ve made it longer. I think that’s what made this show so great.
Thank goodness for re-runs
