Of course you’re familiar with the TV sit-com F.R.I.E.N.D.S after years and years of re-runs (which still pull big viewer numbers) you’ve most definitely seen at least an episode or two. It’s no secret I LOVE LOVE LOVE the program, when I was 13 I gave up Speech and Drama classes simply because it clashed with F.R.I.E.N.D.S… this was before On Demand viewing, streaming, downloading, straight forward recording of TV programs.
If my mum asks, the story we’re going to stick to is… I just “got sick of Speech and Drama. It wasn’t fun anymore”.
I remember watching the final episode of F.R.I.E.N.D.S crushed that this was going to be the end of an era, but thank god for re-runs.
I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S for the classic one-liners and absurd situations.

When writing letters, keep it short and succinct
You don’t want your audience to fall asleep. The infamous “We were on break” highlights good letter writing practice, grammar and For example should I write someone an emotional post break-up letter, it’s best to keep short and sweet in order to hold the readers attention.
