Quote bryan patrick: I am counting down the "days of our lives" :)) till we see Sonny and Will plus the rest of the gang. Somebody asked me the other day why I liked this soap so much cuz they just could not understand why someone would be interested in it. I told them that to start with it actually is very much a reminder of home for me. Because when I was little my mom watched this soap faithfully everyday and would make me take a nap at the time it played. And I can still remember hearing the theme playing and the voices of the actors in the background when I was going to sleep. My Mom recently passed away and while I was looking for something to do in the afternoon I saw an article in "The Advocate" magazine about Sonny's chracter being the first gay guy on the show and I thought Hey I remember that show, so I tuned in and fell in love with his character and when I saw Will I fell in love with the show all over again. It just gives me such a strong feeling of home and the memories of my Mom..She loved Marlena and John and their romance together. And now here I am watching it and in love with WilSon and their soon to happen romance. Funny how things have a way of coming full circle. And now that I have Tom in my life it has become even sweeter. I just wish my Mom could have met Tom before she died, but I have a strong feeling that she knows all about him. Sorry if this is a little off topic but I figured with the show off the air for right now it would be OK.. The buzz I am hearing about the show is getting me excited about the new episodes. Can't wait to see how it all plays out. Big Hugs everybody, I think about you guys and gals all the time, my new DOOL friends.
Hi Bryan, I’m on the count down too. My mom also got me hooked onto DOOL although nowadays she’s not into daytime soaps anymore mainly because of the decline of the quality of stories that both of us enjoyed during the earlier years. I also came back to Days because I read that they were doing a gay s/l which is new and a refreshing change for this soap than the usual interchangeable bed partners.
With the tweets & video interviews stating that there’s a gay romance coming makes my patience a little thin because I want to see it now considering the drought of spotty appearances from Sonny and the lack of movement of any kind of romance but I’m hanging in there. 3)
