Earlier this morning I received an email from my chum Jay Dowling. The subject of this email was “Which 'Big Bang Theory' Character Are You?”
Obviously I was intrigued. I love The Big Bang Show . By some strange quirk of fate, I even have the bobble-head characters for Sheldon, Leonard, Penny, Howard, and Raj (I acquired these before Sheldon's girlfriend, Amy, and Howard's girlfriend-wife, Bernadette, came on the scene), so I couldn’t help but wonder what this was all about.
Inside the email was a link that said Click Here to discover which Big Bang Theory character you are most like. There was also a note saying: “I came out to be Sheldon… no surprise there. Who are you?”
Well, my knee-jerk reaction is that I'm a Leonard, but what do I know, so I clicked the link and took the online test — which takes only a minute or so — and then I was obliged to respond to Jay saying: “Dang! Just call me Amy!”
It has to be said that this is a tad ironic, since Amy is one of the bobble-head characters I don’t have. It's even more ironic when you consider that Mayim Bialik — the actress who plays Amy — is the only member of the cast I've actually met in person. But we digress…
Jay immediately replied: “I guess that explains our rapport.” This was one of those rare occasions on which I couldn’t come up with a snappy comeback. There's still time. What do you suggest?
