#SoCS June 25, 2022 – Product/Produce

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “product/produce.” Use one, use them both, use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

We are a product of our upbringing, don’t you agree?

And we in turn produce those who will continue this world, long after we are gone.

So is it not our duty to ensure we are instilling good values, kindness and compassion, independence, and the ability to aacces and use common sense in our children?

Sorry. Strange, but totally SoCS!

#SoCS June 18, 2022 – Cent/Scent/Sent

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cent/scent/sent.” Use them in any form you like. Use one, use two or use them all. Bonus points if you use all three, and Cheryl will put your next drink on David’s tab. I know, you used to get bonus points for two, but inflation… Enjoy!

She wrote a letter, spraying her favourite scent on the paper, before sealing the envelope.

That should be enough to remind him… A sniff of my perfume, and he’ll come running.

A cough alerted her to someone’s presence. Her brother stood at her doorway and pretended to gag. “What you trying to do? Suffocate the poor bloke? You’re better off just sending him a text!” he rolled his eyes and walked off.

Stupid man, what does he know? Always has to put his two cents in, even if they’re not needed...

Carefully licking the lip of the envelope, she stuck it down and placed a stamp at the top right-hand corner.

I’ll post it in the morning. Once I’ve sent it, all I need to do is wait…

#SoCS June 11, 2022 – A Picture From Wherever…

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a picture from wherever.” When you sit down to write your post, find a picture, whether in a magazine, newspaper, or even product packaging. Write whatever thought or emotion the picture provokes. Enjoy!

I don’t get physical newspapers or magazines often now, so I had nothing handy as I settled down to write this post. Most of the books I had were not picture books, so I thought I would scroll through my gallery and just randomly pick a picture from my old pics… and this is what came out.

Now, this little (large) fella caused more than a few guffaws when it tumbled out of the fruit bags at school a few years ago! Honestly, it makes me giggle just looking at the photo! A pear who thought he was a banana, or a courgette? Who knows?

A confused bit of fruit was this pear
As he questioned each giggle and glare
"Please wash me and eat
I'm ever so sweet
Why , oh why do you just stand and stare?"

#SoCS June 4, 2022 – Iron(y)

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “iron(y).” Use “iron,” use “irony,” or use both. Use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

I love to iron, I do.

Standing in my laundry area, with my music on, I can press away to my heart’s content!

The irony lies in the fact that I find it gets too hot for me in the summer months, and then I stand, and sweat as I iron, hoping that I don’t end up needing to wash said clothes, again!

I love to iron, I do.

But please tell my son that he doesn’t need to wear three outfits a day! It’s hard enough getting the grass stains out of his cricket whites, without adding to the general volume of laundry that passes through to the basket.

I love to iron, I do.

But not that much!

#SoCS May 28, 2022 – Trail/Trial

Linda’s SoCS prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “trail/trial.” Use one, use both, use them any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

This week has been a trial, with many things going on, in work and personal life, but we got to the end of the week, the term and it’s time to breathe!

One thing was me and my clumsiness, and you know I seem to leave a trail of destruction wherever I go. Well, actually it’s not so much a trail as me injuring myself!

I tripped over my own feet and ended up taking the impact of what could have been a much worse landing, on my left hand. All good until I realised a moment later that I couldn’t bend one of my fingers! (The Middle One, ironically!) So I ended up with a dressed middle finger that I couldn’t bend and I looked like I was being rude to people!

Thankfully there was no break or fracture, or tendon damage that was apparent, but I have severe bruising of the finger, knuckles, general hand and ego! The swelling has gone down a lot, but it is still painful, and a little hard to type as fast as I usually do, but things are getting better.

Thank goodness for the two-week break from school!
