I hear her zoom away and I can’t help myself.

I’m drawn to the storage portico like something called a moth to a flame in pre-fire ban days.

I touch the archival unit reverently…I can’t help myself.

I carefully shimmy into the silky skirt. My feet fit perfectly in the shoes.

I tell my music-bot to retrieve 1986.

Oh, what a feeling…when we’re dancing on the ceiling…” ricochets around the sanitary metal walls of our home pod.

It’s hard to believe my great-great-great-great-great-great-Grandmother wore these clothes.

It’s hard to believe gravity’s pull doesn’t let us dance on the ceilings anymore.

Ummm...okay...yeah.   Who gave us this dumb picture post link anyway?!?!   This is my pathetic attempt at kinda/sorta sci-fi as an excuse to explain away a sideways picture.

Dear Jenny, I hate to tell you this....but it's Saturday Centus 108. I think you need a cookie. Your blood sugar is too low. Somebody send her cookies, ASAP!~Ames

1986 does seem like several lifetimes ago! (what I can remember of it)

Judie said...

"fit perfectly"? Is that what you said? Just check out where her toes are! Sheesh, Jenny! Oh, and as Ames said, you are a week behind! You poor dear! I'll bring a cold cloth for your head while you take a little rest!

Sue said...

Turned out to be a fun prompt, actually.

Yes, it's Memorial Day. Yes, we need to read tributary's and memorials, but...I need to laugh! And you got me good.

Thank you!

Very interesting. I'm enjoying everyone's take on this. All seem to be different.

LOL...I love your imagination. I also LOVE this song; goes perfectly with the shoes and skirt. :)

*hands you a cookie per commentor above*

I like your take on it and I want to dance on the ceiling. I always thought it was cool when Fred Astaire did it. ;)
