Put in the corner

July 18, 2021

I like writing prompts. Maybe that’s not clear; I don’t particularly like writing the word “prompts”, I like words that prompt you to write.

I don’t know about you, but when I read a prompt, and assuming it’s a word I understand ( 🙂 ), I try and write about the first thing that comes to mind. Usually it’s a story or a thought about something, and sometimes it’s a memoir, and not often enough it’s a poem of some sort.

When I read today’s Word of the Day prompt: NOBODY, the first thing that came to mind was Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing saying, “Nobody puts baby in the corner” so here I am. I liked Dirty Dancing, but not near enough to try and write fanfic about a weekend afternoon dance lesson with Penny Johnson, so I’ll just say I liked the movie and share a clip.

If you haven’t seen the movie then don’t watch the clip below. If you have seen the movie then it’s safe, you can watch it and listen to the Oscar winning song and remember how much you loved, or hated, the story. And if you’re one of the people who loved it, it’s ok if you cry a little bit.

    This movie is what we girls call a guilty pleasure.
    And Patrick Swayze? Quite decorative! 😄

    I LOVE this movie!! On random days, that would be me dancing in my kitchen to this movie soundtrack CD. Excellent choice, Michael.
