The Gift – An Under the Pier Extra: Why Rosa Hates Dean Martin

March 30, 2008

Even though we all know by now that Rosa hates “that bum Dean,” of course the rest of us don’t necessarily have to feel the same way. For those of you who love Dean Martin, here’s a blog site I came across from a reader who wanted to know what Rosa had against Dean Martin. The website is “Ilovedinomartin.”

And for anyone who wants to know why Rosa hates Dean, well, my answer to the person who wrote me was:

“You know, that’s probably an ‘age has its privilege’ thing. Rosa is old and opinionated. I suspect she must have liked Jerry Lewis and blamed Dean Martin for the duo’s breakup. And being Rosa, she is very loyal to those she loves. So in her eyes, if Dean crossed Jerry, he crossed her, plain and simple. ) Thanks for the note and rest assured, Dean is not banned in my house.”

The bottom line is that you can never know what your characters will like and dislike. You just have to respect that they have their own minds and won’t always agree with their authors. 🙂

And by the way, credit where credit is due. It was a comment of my husband’s that first clued me in to the fact that all was not well between Rosa and Dean….
