Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Dom


Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Dom

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 29/18


For today’s SOCS, Linda has given us the prompt of ‘dom’. Thanks, Linda!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dom.” Use it as a word, or find a word that starts or ends with it. Have fun!


seldom know what I’m going to post on here until I find myself actually doing it. I’d say mostly I do random things. That’s one good thing about having a blog…we have the freedom to write about anything we want to, or anything that interests us.

Sometimes, to avoid boredom, I make up lists of things I remember. Here’s one…can I name all my elementary school teacher’s names? Let’s see.

  1. Miss Prather…she was very nice
  2. Miss ? then she got married & became Mrs. McIlroy … I got in trouble a lot with this one
  3. Mrs. Pistol … an older woman, but nice.
  4. Mrs. Jackson … one of my favorites (took our class to her house one time – very fancy)
  5. Miss Herman  … nice, but we got in trouble a lot…she had a dog named Trebataw, then got another named Dee O Gee
  6. Mr. O’Neal … fun teacher & loved to talk about his time in the armed services

It’s funny how I can remember all that, and I have trouble remembering even what we had for lunches this past week! It actually took me awhile to think of these! Could be we had…

Friday – tuna fish salad at home

Thursday – chicken sandwich (from leftovers of the night before)

Wednesday – Jr. cheeseburger at What-a-Burger place

Tuesday – Homestyle pot roast at Cast Iron Grill – (family gathering for a birthday lunch)

Monday – ??


So, that’s all I can think of at the moment.

Happy Saturday, hopefully with no boredom! 🙂


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. Memory is a strange thing. It’s interesting that you remember Mrs. Herman’s dogs name, especially Trebataw. Wait, does that mean something? I wouldn’t even try to remember meals, that’s too much work. But teachers could be fun. Grade 1: Mrs. Todd (mean) 2. Mrs, Hartseck (nice) 3. Miss Kesler – ok, 4. Miss Holeman got married but I can’t remember her name. That’s as far as can get. I guess the younger we are, the more room we have in our brains and things get well entrenched.


    • It is funny how some things we remember very well, and others not so much. I remember her dogs because I’d never seen a dog like that (they were wire haired fox terriers) and she brought them to school to see her class. I don’t know how she came up with that name Trebataw, but it’s so unusual, I guess that’s why I remembered.
      I like that you remembered your teachers, too, and if they were nice or not. 🙂

  2. You’re doing better than I am with remembering meals. I can probably come up with a few teacher’s names … one I remember well–Mr. Bonisteel–because I babysat for him once. I put his child to bed and watched “Carrie” on TV. I was petrified by the time he and his wife came home!!


      • No, that was fine. It was the movie that terrified me! The fact that the house was very old and there was a claw-footed bath in the bathroom that I found creepy didn’t help either. 😛


      • Oh my, yes! Now I see what you mean. For some reason it didn’t click with me that Carrie, the scary movie was what you were watching. And there you were, alone with a small child in a scary house! ! !


  3. Teachers, particularly at elementary school where most of us had only one for an entire school year, seem like the kind of thing most people would remember… so I don’t find that unusual at all. Contrast that to college, where I only saw most of the professors a couple times a week for one semester, and I can’t recall many of their names at all…


    • I think you’re right. We spent all day with our one teacher in elementary school, and then even in jr. & high school we changed rooms/teachers with each subject. Teachers have a big influence on their students, at least they did then, and we may not remember but a few details, but overall just if they were a good teacher, or not.
