STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS SATURDAY 

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 19/17

So, the word of the SOCS day is ‘pant’. Join in the fun, and also see other entries, by clicking the above link.

By the way…we have a brand new logo/badge for SOCS! Really cool looking, isn’t it!

Pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant, pant.

Wouldn’t it be funny if I just filled this page with the word pant, over and over…and over and over… yeah, not so much.

What can I say about pant that hasn’t been said already?

Dogs and cats pant when they are hot. So do birds. I don’t know if insects pant, but I’m sure they get hot, too. I’ve never looked up close and personal with an insect, to see if it is panting or not.

We pant when we are hot, or tired, or…or…well, whenever we feel like panting, I guess. We also wear pants…regular kind, short kind, under kind, or even go commando with no pants.

When some people (me) write, we sometimes call it pantsing…which is to say, we don’t follow an orderly outline for our stories or whatever we are writing. We write by the seat of our pants, letting the words just flow onto the screen, or page. It’s like Stream of Consciousness writing all the time! It’s fun that way, and sometimes you even surprise yourself with what comes straight out of your brain waves. Then we’ll go back and edit/touch up a bit, but the pantsing writing is still there.

Sometimes I’ve heard the term/phrase ‘fly by the set of your pants’. What does that even mean? We’re not really flying around; we are seated most times. If we’re up doing something new, without quite knowing what we’re doing, and not following directions, you could say we are flying by the seat of our pants. The seat of our pants…the bottom part…the part we sit on. Hmmm…

I think I’ve seen a phrase here on Word Press that says, ‘thanks for flying with Word Press’. Something like that. What do they mean? We should all fly around the world with our writing? This kinda makes sense, as the internet is pretty fast, we can be said to be flying around the world in a matter of seconds…with no airplane! Cool!

So, for now I will fly off to do whatever else, and wish y’all a happy pantsing, flying, fun, day!
