Betty Page died last night. For those very few reading this who don’t know, Betty was famous as a pin-up girl from the early 50s. Her picture graced the wallet of many a man in the armed forces and probably businessmen throughout the States.
Why do I mention Betty? Well, her passing and iconic status flicked a little switch in my brain, a little writing prompt that I might pursue someday – When John Doe stops by an art gallery while on vacation in Europe, the last thing he expected to find was a picture of a pin-up girl that looked remarkably like his grandmother in her youth.
Okay, it needs some more fleshing out but the seed has been planted, so to speak.
