"Jan’s Lament", by PS Ybarra, 2013
This is inspired by most FAVORITE guilty pleasure film, The Brady Bunch Movie. NO ONE could play sweet, jealous and a bit crazy like Jennifer Elise Cox as Jan Brady! This is the part where she attempts to make Marcia “look bad” by cutting off her hair, while a terrorized Cindy screeches in horror and protest upon the sweetly sleeping Marica.
When Mrs. Brady opens the door to see what the commotion is, her look of concern is turned quickly to delight at the nifty new haircut pageboy Jan gave Marcia, who amid the chatter and compliments of the still beautiful Marcia, Jan loses it, saying “No! She’s supposed to look BAD!”
Thankfully, Jan awakes to realize it was only a nightmare. “What a HORRIBLE dream”, a wistful and melancholy Jan says to herself.
I love this Jan Brady.
