#SoCS & #JusJoJan – Jan. 22 2022 – A Rainy Day

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and my very first birthday-Stream-of-Consciousness-Saturday is: “icing on the cake.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “icing on the cake.” Enjoy!

The icing on the cake is most certainly a phrase that tends to describe events or things that are beyond belief, and that is usually in a negative way, rather than a positive, or, in my experience anyway.

For example:

We had a bit of a crazy week at school with staffing, plus there were absences, with the children, due to there being a vomiting bug. Of course, there are times we have to clean up after sickness incidences, especially if they happen in our classrooms. To add to this, the icing on the cake was also having to remove a dead baby mouse from the playground – bleurgh! And the cherry on top? A poopy nappy, right at the end of the day!

    That is so gross, Ritu. I would be losing my cookies with all of that, so I will give you a dose of my admiration for dealing with all of it. Well done, but I hope this weekend is without illness and dead mice and filled with love and joy. Happy Saturday!
