SoCS Saturday- 1/29/22- Common Culture

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “let go.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think “let go.” Enjoy!

The first thing I thought of when prompted by the phrase “let go” was this hilarious scene from The Great Outdoors. [attached below]
We, who grew up with TV and movies, have a cache of quotes and clips that are indelibly etched into our minds. I’m a movie quote junkie.
We are unavoidably connected by our movie history. A quote or mention of a scene is a cultural shorthand we can rely upon. There’s no need to explain further, we ‘get it’.
So, for today I’ll leave you with a Dandy Candy moment and say, “Hey Dad! Let go of the rope!”.

Happy Saturday!

      Much appreciated. Taking the darker route with this prompt wasn’t appropriate for a Sillyfrog. 😉

    I love John Candy. Uncle Buck is one of my favorites.
    Tia Russell : Are you crazy?
    Buck Russell : I can be.
    Tia Russell : You could have taken his head off!
    Buck Russell : Yeah, but would he notice?

      🤣 Don’t get me started on the brilliance of Planes, Trains and Automobiles either. Classic comedy on being human! Thanks!

    “They’re shouting that we’re going the wrong way.”… “How do they know where we’re going?” LOL
