nobody puts baby in the corner....

i fell in love with johnny castle.

i wanted to be baby.

i still shiver when they try to do the dance scene
and she laughs everytime he trails his hand
down her side
but then finally gets it right.

that was the one movie that would end
and i would immediately rewind my borrowed
VHS bootleg copy and
watch it
from the beginning

my girl, 14, is also broken up about it...
but she loved him as darry...
which i did also
as there could have been no one more perfect
to play that part
but it was johnny castle for me...all. the. way.

{and just for the favorite in the outsiders?
dally....oh...sweet bad dally...}

so sad.
i haven't felt this way about a celebrity passing
since mr hooper and mr dress up....
