Goodbye Patrick Swayze
I am pretty sure that when this onsie was passed along to us in a box of hand-me-downs that Ash & Scott had no idea that Steve & I were such big fans of the movie Dirty Dancing. Our song is from the soundtrack and we have been spotted practising the infamous lift in a freezing cold crystal clear lake in the Okanagan...yes we were in fact sober. In fact, I think this movie is the only movie Steve and I share in common!
Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey impacted a generation - my generation - with this film. It was their performances so innocent and true that made Dirty Dancing the best teen love film I have ever known. It got us out of our seats in the theatre to dance our way out the door. It got my babysitter Paula in trouble for taking us to see adult content when we were so young. It is permanently in the que on our Netflix account.
What a brilliant career and a painful demise. Swayze always a gentleman, I hope you are bumping and grinding where ever your heaven may be. I bet it's in a cabin on a lake in upstate New York.
