It was the premiere of Boy Meets World. In other words, it was the day your life changed forever.
I don't believe that is an overstatement. Even if you didn't start watching the show at the time because you were 6 or 7 and thus most likely too young to appreciate it, chances are you spent many Friday nights perched on the couch glued to the TGIF line-up as a pre-teen, so you became VERY familiar with the lives of Cory, Topanga, and Shawn. I will even go so far as to say that you probably secretly dreamed of having Mr. Feeny as a neighbor/principal/teacher/professor. Oh yes, the man of way too many hats would have been a lovely addition to any life, right?
So did you celebrate yesterday, the 18 anniversary of when Boy Meets World premiered, by doing anything special or memorable?
No you say?! How could you forget such an anniversary? For shame.
Well, although you might have gone about yesterday like every other day, Danielle Fishel celebrated the anniversary of the day her life changed forever by getting into a fight at a rock concert! Huzzah! Wow, September 24 is like a really special day in her life.
This is one of those moments I love Twitter and the obsession people have with using it to post the deets of their life.
So, what happened? What could cause the loveable Topanga to snap and throw a fist at a stranger? Well, the answer is hair pulling coupled with threats of "effing" her up. And I quote (via Twitter):
"Ok...deets from last nights fight. 2 girls in front of us, SITTING DOWN at a rock show, got mad because my bf (it helps the story if you picture Cory Matthews as said bf) bumped into the back of their Chairs. They stood up & got in his face, i stepped in front of him & said "what's your problem?" Chick said "don't eff with me "topanga, i Will eff you up" & then pulled my hair. So i clocked her in the face. Hard. She started crying and security threw them out. My first fight!"
Oh Topanga, you are so badass.
