Last year a friend of mine who does a weekly music e-mail, sent out this offering of Bob Dylan "Must Be Santa" for Christmas. At first, I was like...huh? But this song and video never fail to make me smile.
So why include it here, on a writing blog?
First off...in case you haven't noticed there are only 4 shopping days until Christmas!!! (When did that happen?)
Secondly...I'm going to challenge you to use it as a writing prompt.
Yep. Here's your mission if you choose to accept it.
1. Find your sense of humor. I know mine is upset with me at the moment.
2. Go get a drink that warms your cockles. Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate with a mountain of whipped cream. Wine. Tequila. Disaronno.
3. Press play (if you've already done that, don't worry, you can still follow along)
5. Comment. Have fun with it! Forget about wrapping, baking, visits, deadlines, bills, and hangovers. I mean, really I WANT to be at this party! Why does Bob change his hat so many times? Who are all those people? Who's the guy (or gal) passed out outside? And why...WHY do those three guys go tearing through the house?
I have my ideas...how about yours?
