11 Times Monica Geller Was The OG 'Mom Friend'

The mom friend before the term "mom friend" existed.

Warner Bros. TV

Don't even deny it — Monica Geller was the OG "mom friend." Every mom friend can relate to her in one way or another, so here are 11 times Monica proved that she was the original mom friend, especially of '90s sitcoms.

1. When she opened up her apartment to Rachel when she ran away from home and helped her adjust to real life.

If there's one thing mom friends know how to do, it's take care of our friends.

2. She also always gave the best advice.

Mom friends are also the one everyone turns to.

3. When she was always concerned with the little things.

Because, well, who else is gonna worry about that kind of stuff?

4. When everyone went to her when they needed something done.

5. When she passed on her "knowledge" to Chandler.

Us mom friends are, more often than not, some of the most intelligent ones in our friend groups and, subsequently, have lots to teach our friends.

6. When she freaked over not being able to clean up her apartment.

Mom friend = the clean friend.

7. When she was also the most organized friend.

8. When she made it clear that she's *always* the hostess.

When you're the mom friend, your friends are always at your place, eating your food, and you wouldn't want it any other way.

9. When she was just a little controlling of her friends.

We wouldn't be the MOM friend if we weren't just a liiiiitle bit controlling.

10. She was the one who planned all of the friends' activities and birthday parties.

Mom friends LOVE to plan.

11. When she knew her friends judged her for her OCD but didn't care anyway.

We deal with a lot of making fun of for being the mom friend, but honestly, what would our friends do without us?

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
