“Do teens today know who Jennifer Grey is?”

Conversation with a friend while I worked on my booktalk of My Big Nose (and Other Natural Disasters)

Miss Print: “Do teens today know who Jennifer Grey is?”

CC: “I don’t know who that is. Should I feel bad?”

Miss Print: “Yes. But your not knowing her answers that question. She was in Dirty Dancing.”

CC: “Ooooooh! I do know her!”

Miss Print: “But if you don’t know her name it’s not worth mentioning in my booktalk.”

  1. Oh come on! Thats a bit harsh! remember that she faded into oblivion after dirty dancing because she got plastic surgery on her nose – no one wanted to cast her with a perfect nose. Grey indeed!

    P.s. Obviously I didn’t know who you were talking about until you got to the dirty dancing bit in your story.
