YMCA. YES, THAT ONE. Day Y of A to Z

YMCA originally stood for Young Men’s Christian Association, but now it stands for delicious disco dishiness.

No matter your age, please tell me you know about The Village People and their singable, danceable, shake-your-bootiable hit song.


Indeed. Or, as we said back in the day, “Well, awRIIIIght!!!”

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies on the subject of yams.

Please to remember: After the A to Z Challenge ends, I’ll be doing Story A Day in May.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character goes to an unfamiliar town and has to find a place to stay.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    It’s a little disturbing to see how familiar these guys all seem. Am I old yet?

    Did you know this is a favorite song amidst midwesterners in ragrds to good family entertainment? And there’s nothing wrong with that!

      Heh! I hear ya, about the familiarity. Mom and I watched the first-issued Star Wars movie, and it was like a trip in the way-back machine, like watching it now and watching it back then for the first time, both at once. Weird feeling.

      Yeah, the Wiki page for The Village People said that this song is a gay anthem AND a favorite at manly man sporting events AND family celebrations. A true classic. And fun!
