"When I think about the future, I wanna be the guy who deserves a girl like you."--Max to Naomi during the West Bev graduation on 90210

Okay, it's cheesy, and after several months of no posts, you'd think I'd choose something more, well, enlightening. But if you think about it, and you're a fan of this show, then you know how important those words are for that couple, and you probably had your awww moment, too. Of course they're a couple in love in high school, and given Naomi's track record with men, she may have a new love bunny within the near future, though now that she's dropped the baby bomb on Max, who knows where the writers will take her story.

See, that's the thing...the future can take people anywhere, and when we ponder it, we always imagine we'll be someplace greater than where we are, and when we wake up to the future, we think, what the heck happened? while saying to God, "Um, excuse me, sir, but I think you dropped me off in the wrong place."

The tricky thing is that we can't control the outcome; we can't see what's up ahead. All we can do is experience life as it happens, and as scary and exciting as that is, it's a huge enigma we don't seem meant to figure out.

So, I say, go ahead Max and try to be the man that deserves a girl like Naomi. She's shallow, inconsiderate, and sometimes downright worthy of a good slap in the face, but she's trying to exceed beyond the superficial bubble she lives in. If she wasn't, she'd never be dating a public. Now I bet she never saw that coming in her future!
