Thursday Inspiration #102 Stuck On You

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration, a weekly picture and word prompt which will hopefully inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction, or maybe you want to write about a song.  Last week didn’t go all that well and I am hoping to have more participants, but with the April A – Z going on, I realize that it may be difficult for people to join in.  This week’s prompt is glue and you are asked to link this word to the image above, or perhaps you can listen to the 1960 Elvis Presley song ‘Stuck On You’ and be sparked to write something.  This was Elvis’s first hit single after completing his two-year stint in the US Army.  It went to #1 in the charts and was written by Aaron Schroeder and J. Leslie McFarland.

Did you know that prehistoric hunters used a tar-based adhesive made from birch-bark to create a natural glue, which they used to bind stone arrowheads or axe stones to wood?  The Beatles may have been fixing a hole where the rain gets in, but when King Tut’s beard broke off in an Egypt museum, they crudely glued it back together when it was damaged, and insisted the item could be restored to its former glory.

I’m gonna stick like glue
Stick because I’m
Stuck on you

  1. I’m sorry I missed the debut of this challenge, it’s the sort of thing I enjoy. I’ll be participating a bit later today though. So many A-Z posts to read (including yours!) There’s been one already on the classic Jethro Tull “Aqualung” which you might enjoy! I’m feeling the after-effects of the 2nd Covid vaccine and even though I read the post just five or ten minutes ago, damned if I can pull up the blogger’s name. But I’m sure you can find it if you’re interested!
