Oh, That Bette! #1LinerWeds

Davis, not Midler, although Midler had some one-liners that would make your hair as curly as hers. Love her!

No, I was thinking about All About Eve, and one of the most iconic one-liners in filmdom.

This would be filed under the heading of Lines At The Beginning Of A Party To Make You Put On Your Hat And Slip Quietly Away:

Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy night.

My favorite one-liner of Ms. Midler’s will be supplied upon request, as if you couldn’t guess.

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s weekly blog hop, One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner or just like them, follow the link.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write a scene for which that one-liner is appropriate, but not in the original way.

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.

      OMG, you CRACK me UP! Okay, so my favorite quote from The Divine Miss M comes at the end of her heartfelt sharing that some people find her style and humor offensive, and that she has something to say about that: “FUCK ‘EM, IF THEY CAN’T TAKE A JOKE!”

      Funny! I decided not to hide mine. I like pulling age on folks. “Carry my heavy bags? Why thank you, young man!” If I were looking for a date, or my husband looked way younger than I do, I would probably go blonde, myself. And that makes me think of Oscar Wilde’s line about the widow whose hair went quite blonde with grief.
