Connected – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Bodily Function

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS August 11/18

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “bodily function.” Decide on one or write about a whole bunch of bodily functions. Bonus inspiration: here’s a website. Enjoy!

Linda G. Hill, our SOCS hostess, has given us the prompt of ‘bodily functions’. Thanks, Linda!

This is a weird one, I think, which could go in many different directions. The link above (website), has some really funny sounding words, but they are all real, and have meanings for normal bodily functions.

Anyway…here goes…

Head, shoulders, knees, and toes…knees, and toes…

No?

The arm bone’s connected to the shoulder bone…

No?

Well, all this talk about connectedness in the body is kind of what we’re learning about in today’s SOCS prompt – bodily functions.

It seems you can’t have one without the other in order to be alive. Right?

The brain functions as the control center of everything and tells your normal bodily functions how to operate. So, if your brain doesn’t tell your muscles and skeleton bones to perform, then you’d not be doing anything. Your heart is a muscle, and keeps things going, but your lungs bring in air to breathe, which is important, too.

See how everything is connected?

Bodily functions have to be in concert with all the individual instruments working in harmony, or you’d cease to exist!

Well, all this stuff about bodily functions being connected, reminds me of the School House Rock song, and how body parts function in conjunction with each other.

And, here’s how it’s all connected in this fun song…

Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • I know! It did go by fast, and there’s so many pieces and parts to the human body. My daughter is a nurse, and she had to learn all of it in her studies. She’d sometimes have me quiz her on it all and what functions everything does. Mind boggling!

  1. We are amazing, that’s all I have to say about that! Look at how well we’re put together and how much doctors can fix us when we’re not! That’s nice about your daughter, nurses are angels.

    • That’s the truth! So much has been learned about how all our parts work, and how to fix them when they don’t. I’m glad we’re in the here and now, and not way back before, when there wasn’t much cure for anything.
      Thanks …nurses are great, and are most times the first line of communication between us and the doctor.
