#SoCS Aug. 27, 2022 – Board/Bored

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “board/bored.” Use one, or use them both for bonus points. Enjoy!

"Mum! We're bored!" they said
"How can you be bored?" I sighed
"There's nothing to do!"
"Really, kids? Nothing?"
I glanced around the bedroom

"Read a book?" "No!"
"Watch a film?" "Seen em all."
"Arts and crafts?" "Meh!"
"Garden?" "It's cold."
"The park?" "Same as above!"
"Shall we bake?" "Nope."

"I know," I said
Opening that treasure trove
That acts as their toy box
I moved ageing Spiderman figures
And Barbie dolls.
My Little Ponies and light sabres

Until I found them
Little flat boxes of joy
Scrabble
Monopoly
Ludo
Frustration

"Who wants to play a game?"
"Me! Me!" came the cries
Everyone loves a board game!

    Gosh, always these similar sounding words. You will not believe how difficult it is, getting them into my mind, Sis! Quite apart from the fact that you, as a native speaker, pronounce them so quickly. 😉 xx Michael

    Excellent job on the prompt, Ritu. Board games are just the ticket to replace boredom with family fun or family fighting.
