How do you call your lover boy?

Dirty Dancing, the first movie I ever snuck into the basement to watch, knowing full well I would get in trouble for watching it. Of course I had been sneaking my dad’s victoria secret catalogs for years. Oh youth.

I love the music, the sexy sweaty grinding, the love story from the wrong side of the tracks, the fact that she is 18 yet they all call her baby, and I love that the thieves are the cute old couple. Can you believe that Patrick and Jennifer hated each other during filming? Hate sure does lead to hot sex.

I wonder if I were in the movie dirty dancing, what character would I be?


The dad: I could take up golf and be a rich doctor. But, that would be boring.

The mom: Are you kidding me, I could never be that passive and quiet. Let’s move on.

The sister: She isn’t the smartest cookie, but she does get the boys… well until she won’t put out.

Baby: The perfect combination of smarts, and naïveté all in one.

Johnny: The poor guy who is stuck dancing with rich ladies, and having them throw themselves at you. Tough life.


Such a tough decision on who to play. But, when it comes down to it, the answer is right there in front of me. Get to make out with Jennifer Grey or be related to Jennifer Grey. Hello, make out with Jennifer Grey.

I totally would be Johnny. Rich ladies here I come!
