Day Out Splat! – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Falls From the Sky
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “fall from the sky.” Write about anything that falls from the sky–real, imagined, or idiomatic. Have fun!
Our day out almost started with a splat falling from the sky!
Yeah, my daughter and I had another day out, trying to find some yard sales, then going to the library book sale, then to eat lunch. My grand-daughter didn’t come with us this time, as she stayed home with her dad.
First yard sale we found nothing good…some old toys, knick-knacks, purses…blah, blah, blah. Then, when we got back in the car after buying nothing, my daughter told me the toys had mice poop all over them. Ewwww! People…clean up your junk before trying to sell it!
So, we drive off, and about a block away it happened…the splat that fell from the sky. Bird poop landed on the windshield…right on my side! Ugh! It did make a splat noise, too. Well, we were hysterically laughing and grossing out over that for awhile.
The library book sale was okay, but crowded as all get out…with half the people coughing and/or sneezing all over the place. Wonderful….
But, we did find quite a few used books to buy.
Next, lunch…at almost 3 p.m. We were starving by then, the food was good, and we enjoyed it. (today though, my daughter said either that food or something else had made her really sick overnight)
Back at home…time for a big ‘ol thunderstorm…loud thunder, bright lightning, and of course falling from the sky was buckets of rain and some hail stones. Splat!
What all has been falling from your sky?
Here’s a picture of a giant, brown, carved wood bear. He is standing on his back legs so he’s really tall, has a fish in his paws, and a red bandana around his neck. He’s in front of glass windows in the lobby of the restaurant we went to, which is a seafood place.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
