SOCS – Stream of Consciusness Saturday – Shortcut/Cut Short

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 4/17


Today, Linda has asked us to write about ‘short cuts’, or ‘cut short’.

If you’d like to join in this weekly challenge, you can find the details at the above link.


Short cuts, as in faster ways to do things, I suppose. I don’t usually do short cuts, as I get confused unless I follow every direction, one by one, to get to a result. Even then, I may not understand it. So, can’t say much about that. However, I did do a short cut once. I wrote about it in a diary I had. It only said, ‘I found a new way home – the alley’. I thought it was a cool way to go home from school, and that it would make it a shorter walk. Yes, we walked to school, which from my house was about 8 blocks or so away. Anyway, walking down the alleys was fun, and you never knew what you’d find.

Next we have ‘cut short’. That reminds me of getting my hair cut. I don’t like short hair on myself. I’ve had it short, before, but always let it grow out. There were a few times I went to get just a little trimmed off, or some layers put in my long hair, and the stylist went overboard, cutting my hair way too short, as in I had to go get a wig to wear until my hair grew out again. That’s why I only cut my own hair now, just a little off the bangs and top, to keep it out of my eyes. I’ll never trust a stylist again.

Anyway, I’ll leave it at that, and wish y’all a lovely weekend. Here’s a photo I took just a few minutes ago. 🙂


Thanks for visiting! Peace }i{

  1. I miss back alleys. Used to have them when I was growing up to, but they don’t have many here. Ah well…I probably wouldn’t walk down them anymore anyway, given I have watched too many horror movies by now…
