Several months ago I did a post on A Writer’s Life as told by Joey Tribbiani. While I don’t really want to repeat the same post, my multiple requests I’ve been asked to do another. And this time I’ve decided to take on Ross Gellar.
Ross was a bit harder than Joey, but I still had a utter blast creating this post. If you want another laugh, you can also check out A Writer’s Life as told by Chandler Bing and A Writer’s Life as told by Phoebe Buffay.
