Looking for love in all the wrong chem labs

So this happened: the other day Keely sent Andie and I an email asking us to come up with a good romcom idea.  The whys and wherefores don’t matter, what this post is about is the most excellent email convo of all time that followed.

 

So Keely asked us and I gave her all sorts of ideas which she turned down and then Andie sent us this:

romcom1

Of course, when I read it I totally died laughing because a) it’s so Andie and b) its hilarious and c) I am pretty sure that it’s never been done before.

 

Keely:             That’s the best idea ever why did I not think of it?

 

Andie:             I don’t know, it was a pretty obvious one. I didn’t even throw in the plot twist about the misfolded one getting help from another (female) chaperone protein and the first protein thinking he was cheating!!! but just in case this is over their heads, we maybe should think of something else

 

Keely:             yeah I mean I don’t know HOW someone could not understand all that, but I think you might be right

 

Andie:             the real problem is that now that you shared it on Facebook without a copyright someone might steal it!!!!

 

oh nooooz!

 

Keely:                I don’t think anyone could do it justice without your influence.  What if Andie is the main character of this romcom and she makes up weird rom coms about cells throughout the movie?

 

romcom2

Keely:             HAHAHAHAHA what are you trying to say?? Ok so now we have our protagonist – let’s call her “andie” – what’s the plot?!?!

 

Me:                  Looking for love in all the wrong chem labs

 

Keely:                WHAT A GREAT LOGLINE! think we can really get some good chemistry between the protagonists?

 

Andie:                 yeahhh, chemistry like between DNA and polymerase, right? RIGHT??!?! AMIRIGHTGODDAMNIT!

 

Keely:                ok so what if Andie is the main character of this romcom and she makes up weird romcoms about cells throughout the movie?

 

Me:                  Idea! You do a sort of Love Actually or Valentines Day with multiple story lines and call it Mole Day and it’s a bunch of chemistry geeks looking for love

 

Keely:                I can’t stop laughing at work. GODDAMMIT.

 

… and with that the conversation was over because Keely needed to calm down. But I think the idea is a real winner.  What do you guys think??
