#SoCS – Jan. 23rd – Blank Sliding Off

Thhis confusing post was brought to you, thanks to Linda’s #SoCS Prompt this week:

Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “close eyes and point.” When you’re ready to write your post, open a book, a newspaper, or whatever is handy and close your eyes and point. Whatever word or picture your finger lands on, make that the basis of your SoCS/JusJoJan post. Enjoy!

I looked to the right and the book next to me was Sugarbread by Balli Kaur Jaswal. The music was playing and I closed my eyes, and danced around with the book, as my daughter watched, laughing at her strange mother.

I opened it at a page and pointed, then opened my eyes and looked and I had chosen a blank page.

Blank.

Does that mean I get a blank canvas? I get to choose whatever I want to write about! I danced about again in exhileration, then the joy killer, aka Lil Princess, said “That’s cheating!”, and she made me do it again.

So the second time I closed my eyes, danced around and opened my book, my finger landed on the phrase ‘slide off‘. She then proceeded to giggle as my face took on a confused expression.

What am I supposed to write about?

I can’t even separate the words, as my finger was slap bang in the middle of them, and we have to play this by the rules. (Though if that is the case, I should stick with blank...)

So maybe I’ll think about the weather and all the rain we’ve had here in the UK, recently. I’ve had a few days where I have sat in the car and watch the raindrops race down the outside of the car, gather, and gently slide off the edge of the wing mirror…

Oh, my, Ritu. What on earth are you typing?

I haven’t a clue. My mind is blank.

I think I should just slide off, right now, slip away, quietly, whilst you, my reader Peeps, scratch your head and wonder what on earth I’m on about…

Til next time!

    Lol – Definitely another great solution. Had I ever told you what I was saying in school, in religious education when asked how Joseph came to Egypt? I didn’t know what to write and wrote “on foot.” Lol
    Because the question was too general, I got the points. 😉 Yeah! Finding the easiest solution can be happy too. Michael
