General knowledge is as uncommon as common sense!


Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “starts with gen.”Find a word that starts with “gen” and use it in your post. Have fun!


General knowledge is something we all should know

But unfortunately it’s as uncommon as the common sense we all should have

Genuine concern for the future survival of our youth

Sometimes keeps me up at night wondering, how?

They may call themself Gen-X, but they seriously lack survival skills

How to fix something in their work space or make it work

Makes them go running to ma or pa, to get explicit instructions

But one thing I must admit that they have the skill to run

Five parallel conversions at the same time while playing

Multiple games on their gaming consoles, with a host of opponents

Perhaps what they lack in one aspect of daily life, they make up in another!

  1. This is so true Sadje! The younger people have a different skill set and are good at multitasking but may lack some other life skills.

  2. There’s definitely a resiliency issue with younger generations. Hopefully they will learn that being uncomfortable and doing things that stretch ourselves is how we grow, and how we increase our own resiliency.
