Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “lip.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “lip”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Giving the lip!

The problem with our young generation is that they don’t give enough respect to their parents and teachers. They would often give you the lip, and when you enquire about this slip, they will inform you in clipped accent that they are just stating their opinions.

The conversation between these youngsters can often, as an edited version, can go much like this ……” what the blip ….blip…..blip…….”

This conversation is enough to drive me outdoors, equipped with my clippers, wearing my slippers to spend some time away in the peaceful natural environment, where I find my bed of beautiful tulips. Which soothe my soul.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fab.” Use it as a word or find a word beginning with “fab.” As always, use any way you’d like. Have fun!

For Saturday, a fabulous prompt by Linda. I love smooth fabrics to wear, as they give a fabulous sensation next to skin. Reading Esop’s Fables I realized that all the stories in it are fabricated in such a way as to teach the reader a moral lesson. The cottage next to our house was fabricated out of pre-made wooden structures, so it was ready in no time at all.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dough/d’oh.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

A young person’s life is like a ball of dough. Malleable and elastic. You can form it into any shape you want. As they grow up, the softness and malleability is replaced by increasing hardness. They have adopted a shape and with time, their personalities are taking up the shape which is either dictated by their desires or by the circumstances they are growing up in. They have plans for their future, which might involve earning lot of dough or getting famous or both. Then there are those who have noble aims in life, like serving their country or humanity. They engage in professions which provide them with the tools to acquire their set goals.

Whatever path they tread in life, there are bound to be d’oh moments in life. That is a rule in life. We end in situations where the only thing left to say is d’oh! When one is facing such a situation, grab a doughnut and a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy the follies of life.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!

The last letter I got in actual mail was a letter from my bank.

So though I don’t have much to say about my bank, one thing is for certain that they are a real polite bunch of people. They make an effort to remember my name and call me by my name when I visit the branch next. Nowadays, the banking has come to the level that you seldom have to personally visit the bank, but if you do, they do give you the red- carpet treatment.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “soul/sole.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

It was Saturday night dinner. A special treat, for my husband really loves fish specially sole. I got the recipe from the net, got the ingredients ready and was all ready to go. The dish was to be sole meunière, and by all accounts not very difficult to make. And what was the occasion? It was my husband’s birthday. And preparing this dish by myself, my sole purpose was to let my hubby know that I could cook too!

The fish was almost ready when I inadvertently stepped on a piece of broken glass, which gave me a nasty cut on the sole of my foot. It was almost a disaster. Luckily my husband came home on time, saved me from bleeding all over the kitchen floor and the fish from burning to a crisp in the oven. There was no moment of glory for my soul that day, but we did get to enjoy the dinner. Which surprisingly turned out pretty good.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “abash/a bash/bash.” Use “abash,” or “bash” as a noun or a verb. Bonus points if you manage all three. Have fun!

 

The birthday bash

 

The day was supposed to be bright and sunny, at least that was what the weather forecast said. But somebody messed up! The day dawned grey and dull. By the afternoon it had started to drizzle and Tommy had no hope of having the birthday bash outside in their beautifully manicured lawn. In a panic she started to think of options. She could cancel or postpone it but that would be an embarrassment that she wasn’t willing to face. Or she could hold the party inside. She did gave this option a lot of thought but it meant a lot of extra work for herself and the staff.

It left only one last option. She would ask her grandmother to hold the party in her huge house. She rang up granny and asked her if she could arrange to have the party at her place. But the verbal bashing she got from her left her abashed. Granny was not happy at the fact that she hadn’t called her or visited her in ages and had just rang her up to ask a favor of her.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cele-.” Find a word that starts with or contains “cele” and use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Today I celebrate the fact that I can see the celestial bodies in the sky with celerity and clearly without the help of a telescope. It is just due to the fact that I eat celery each and every day, and as you know that celery is rich in vitamins which help to improve the visual acuity. In reality, this is a very celebrated fact and most people try to increase their longevity by consuming vitamin rich super foods. And a lot of well known celebrities are getting on this bandwagon and are loud in their praises of natural super foods.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday “critic(al).”

Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here to this week’s prompt page and check to make sure it’s here in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome Stream of Consciousness post. Anyone can join in!

How do you react to someone who is critical of your work? Personally I am not very happy when offers ” constructive ” criticism on my writing, unless I ask for it. If it is in answer to my request, I appreciate it. Like I often ask my husband to read one of my posts and ask for his opinion on them. In fact when I started my blog, I was pretty unsure of myself and would show him all of my posts. And it was his encouragement that gave me the confidence to write more and on different topics and formats.

So what is your reaction if someone tells you that there are a number of flaws in your work?

Linda G Hill has given us our prompt of SoCS, February 16/ 2019 .Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “yawn.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn,” when you sit down to write your post. Enjoy!

 

 

Is yawning contagious?

If you see someone yawning, it is 90% probable that you will yawn. It is like a contagious illness that we catch from each other. I even start yawning if someone is doing it on a movie or a TV show,! Though it’s not polite to yawn when you’re in company. It says to the people who your are bored by them and would rather sleep than listen to what they have to say. If a student yawns in a classroom, the whole of the class catches it and the teacher finds it difficult to hide his/ her yawn, smothering it under a false cough or hiding it with his/ her hand.

What is a yawn? It’s actually a signal from our mind that we need more oxygen in our lungs and we open up our mouth wide and take a strong and deep breath. Simple! So it should not be offensive or socially incorrect. It’s co-relation with sleep is simple too. As we get sleepy, our breathing gets shallow, triggering the low oxygen signal to brain and hence a yawn.

But one thing is true. If someone is talking to you in a monotonous voice on a subject, failing to capture your interest, yawn away , and they might get the hint!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ends with -ly.” Start your post with any adverb that ends in “-ly.” Bonus points if you end with an adverb too. Have fun!

Safely I can say that the winter is not over yet. Most of us are overly concerned about the fact that it is snowing in the month of February but looking back I can see that it’s not something that unusual. The thing is that we usually forget what the weather was like in the past and get worried about the current situation. As in all the years before, spring will come after winter and that will be followed by summer, the cycle of weather and hence the time marches on. The weather and seasons change at their own time, regardless of what we perceive to be the correct time for it. So enjoy the blessings of every change, because it is the essence of living wisely.
