Linda is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “a word you have to look up.” We all have words we can never spell. Use one of yours in your post and let that word drive your stream of consciousness where ever it goes. Have fun!
I rely on autocorrect for correcting my spellings. They are truly bad!
Let’s start with the title of this post; Stream of Consciousness Saturday!
If my “smart” phone doesn’t immediately prompt me with the whole of the title, I am lost. How to spell consciousness? Actually, I have difficulty with words that have a c and a s together. I flounder and have to try multiple combinations of them to get to the right spelling. One thing that helps me is if the word is not spelled correctly, it doesn’t looks right to me and I get busy trying to make it right. If I weren’t typing out my post on my phone, which apparently is smarter than me, I don’t think I would be posting so many posts a day. It probably would take me hours to write one post!
Another big help is the free version of Grammarly which tries to correct my grammar. It has no appreciation of poetry so it usually rejects my poetic phrases. But I still go on with them.

Presenting the week’s prompt – You may use the word(s), phrase and/or image to interpret the prompt.
Due to my blog having some youthful followers, please and thank you for not submitting anything you wouldn’t want a 10 year old to peruse or see.
Weekly prompt – supernatural– (adjective) – of or relating to an order of existence beyond the visible observable universe especially relating to God or a god, demigod, spirit, or devil. Departing from what is usual or normal especially so as to appear to transcend the laws of nature. Attributed to an invisible agent (such as a ghost or spirit).
Now I suspect there may be a few people who are hesitant to wander down this path but when you think about it, its only 42 words and I’m sure you can come up with an idea or two.
It doesn’t have to be the zombie apocalypse, perhaps someone becomes a zombie after a hard week at work, perhaps its a song, a street name, or even a chicken dance. You get my drift here, let the imagination flow and see when it takes you.
They were all sitting there. Blank faces eyes fixed and staring ahead. The sight sent a chill down my spine. I tried sneaking past them quietly but one of them saw me.
