Weekly Scribblings #47: Meme Madness

Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! Most of the time I get a good laugh out of memes, but every now and then I’ll run across something that really gets me thinking, like this one:


My love of tricksters comes from my dad reading me a kids’ version of the Odyssey, as well as bonding over old Bugs Bunny cartoons. I first heard of Dr. Who from a friend in elementary school. An old boy friend is responsible for my love of classic rock. My husband made me better appreciate folk and indie music. One of my best friends got me to lean into more whimsically femme clothing styles. And on, and on, and on…

So for today, I’d like you to think about the things you learned to love because you loved someone else. You can approach this prompt from your actual experiences or write from the perspective of a fictional character. Both new poetry and prose are welcome, but be sure to keep prose offerings to 369 or fewer.

  1. Thank you for a wonderful prompt; I enjoyed acknowledging a love my father gave me. I also enjoyed your quote here, and the Beatles song.

  3. "... some have changed, some are gone, and some remain ..." Good song choice, the Beatles are probably my favorites followed by the Eagles. The beatles because I've spent about half a year over a five year period up a block from their recording studios on Abey Road/Lane.
    I have my tale in the back of my mind and reminders on the Compose screen, should post by night?

    1. Technically, you've got a week. I'll keep poking my head back here to look. Goodness knows I'm not going anywhere. :D

  4. From something I never thought I'd love to something I never thought I'd miss. Some flavours are just like no other.

    1. And your way to enjoy that particular flavour is so much better than the usual. (Loved your poem.)

    2. It's strange how dear those unexpected flavors become to us. But it's also a little wonderful.

  6. I've been thinking about this prompt, mostly trying to figure out what I've learned to love because of another. I've had a hard time finding something, but... perhaps my love of the land came to be because those around me loved dirt too. Thank again, I can't imagine a universe where I wouldn't love plants and dirt. So, did I learned to love it because my village introduced me to it, or do I love it because I just do? Hm... I guess some of these things come in circles. I think I will let it go, or my head my explode.

    1. LOL, I know there are some things that are 100% all me because no one but me seemed to be as obsessed with it. Anime comes to mind. It took getting to college to find other people who liked it as much (if not more!) And of course that was the gateway into loving Japanese tea ceremony.
