So I looked up Velma from Scooby-Doo on Wikipedia to look up her last name for a joke, and I found this:
Velma has a serious relationship with Shaggy in the most recent series Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated. Velma and Shaggy have begun to secretly date and she is pushing Shaggy to make their relationship official. Shaggy, however, is hesitant as he wants to hide the relationship from Scooby until such a time when he feels confident enough to tell him. This causes some tension between Shaggy and Velma. Eventually, Scooby becomes aware that they are dating and his initial reaction was exactly what Shaggy had feared: anger, jealousy, and a sense of betrayal. Ultimately, Shaggy chooses Scooby and breaks up with Velma, telling her that he doesn’t feel ready to have a girlfriend. Later Velma reconciles her friendship with Shaggy and reveals that she no longer has romantic feelings for him.
When did “Oh no! There’s a ghost? Oh, it’s just Old Man Smithers!” go out the window? I mean, not complaining but I can’t say that like, this is enthusing. I don’t even know how to feel about this.
I’m at this point in my life where I’ve only recently started drinking, and I feel really grown up every time I do it, and I want to just say “YEAH ALCOHOL” to everyone so they can go, “Dang, this girl’s an adult! I’m so envious of her mature life choices and the way she comports herself publicly! I’ll bet she didn’t spend half her evening giggling on a good friend’s bed while half-drunkenly papping another good friend repeatedly on the face!” and I can go “HAH FOOLED YOU THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I DID YOU JUST THINK I’M MATURE BECAUSE I DRANK ALCOHOL.”
Just a reminder that this fine lady is a little bit perfect.
