“Linda Belcher? But isn’t she a fictional character?” you might be asking me right now. Well, yes, she is, but open your mind! Fictional characters can be lady inspirations, too!
I recently discovered that I want to be Linda Belcher when I get older. You know what, why wait until I’m older? I want to be Linda Belcher right now. She is the coolest lady on TV because she’s a sassy mom, something I truly hope I can say about myself someday. I really do feel like I was meant to be the sassy mom of teenagers. Like, that’s when I’m going to hit my stride, you know?
She’s involved in her kids’ lives, but she’s not too involved. She still has her own interests (wine, dancing, competing with other moms in spaghetti fund raisers).
She also understands the importance of food, be it soft serve ice cream or a piece of cake. I like any woman who can really go to town on a dessert.
And she’s not afraid to let people know when she isn’t happy. Like when there’s a cow in the living room.
And, of course, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that Linda’s voiced by the wonderful, hilarious, genius John Roberts, who brought us one of my favorite characters ever.
Bob’s Burgers is probably my favorite current TV show (even though I’m woefully behind). If you’re not watching it, you can watch a few episodes on Hulu (more if you have Hulu plus!) or catch up on the first season on Netflix.
