So I haven’t even heard of the term “Hobson’s choice” ‘til tonight. So kill me. The first thing that popped into my mind when I read the name Hobson was Arthur’s butler. What, don’t tell me you’ve never seen the film!! And no, I’m not talking about the Russell Brand remake! I mean the original film with Liza Minnelli in 1981. I may not have even been conceived yet when that movie was released but hey, I love oldies! I didn’t care much for Dudley Moore’s performance as Arthur Bach – I mean, gawd, all he had to do was play a spoiled richy bitchy alcoholic but he ended up snickering his way from the beginning of the film to the end. I didn’t even understand half of what the man was saying! But Hobson — now, THAT’s a character! John Gielgud played the role of the father-like yet snobbish valet to perfection! He won an Academy Award for it, FYI. He had the wittiest lines that cracked me up like crazy and I’d hang on to his every word. ^^ Oooohh and I LOVE the theme song!! You know, that old song ( Christopher Cross) that goes like …
When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love ❤
Ummm… I just spent a couple of minutes writing about something that you may or may not give a damn about and had the nerve to publish it. I guess that pretty much answers the question. 🙂
I just wanna write. No matter what the cost.
Why? I dunno.. Maybe because I’m a self-centered little bitch?
Deal with it. ^^
PS they changed the title to Daily Prompt: Morton’s Fork — another term that I knew nothing about until I Googled it. I would’ve posted ’bout either Morton’s neuralgia or the salt. ^^
