The Babe #1LinerWeds

I was behind our book display at Imaginarium this weekend, and a young woman walked by wearing a Labyrinth t-shirt. I told her I loved her shirt. She thanked me. I said:

Jareth is my imaginary goblin boyfriend.

She said, “Me too!”


He reminds me of the babe.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: Write about an imaginary boyfriend.



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.

      Some people, I’ve been told, are impervious to David Bowie’s charms. 🙂

    LOL! I LOVE that movie!

    “What babe? the babe with the power
    What power? power of voodoo
    Who do? you do
    Do what? remind me of the babe.”

    When #1 Grandson was 4 this was his favorite movie and song. Baby Girl and I took him to Disneyland and Legoland that year and all the way down and back home we listened to 3 songs. His favorite- Dance Magic Dance, Baby Girl’s favorite When can I see you again, a Disney parade song, and my favorite that year, The Coyote Song by Don Edwards. I am not kidding just those three songs for HOURS! You do what you gotta do to keep a 4-year-old happy on a long road trip. Amiright? Good times!

    And now, I’m going to listen to the whole song. 😀

      You are so right on keeping a toddler happy on a road trip! He had good taste. Wonder why his favorite was a song with the lyric, “SLAP that baby! Make him FREE!”? Probably because it was so outrageously impossible in his own life. That sounds like a fun trip, all around. 🙂 “And baby says, ‘Dance, magic, dance!'” ~insert Snoopy dancing gif~
