Address Book – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Dress
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dress.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
For today’s SOCS prompt, Linda G. Hill has given us the word ‘dress’ to use however we want. Thanks, Linda!

First I think of wearing a dress. But, I don’t very often wear a dress. I have a few that I wear sometimes just here at home. They are long and flowing, and kind of like mu-mus. (think Mrs. Roper on 3’s Company TV show). They are comfortable, but I wouldn’t wear them out in public. Maybe that’s because the ones I have are more the novelty type, rather than a dressy type. They have embroidery, sequins, wild patterns, and fringe.
Mostly though, I was thinking of address books. Those little paper notebooks where you write down people’s addresses, phone numbers, and any other information you might want to remember, like birthday dates.
Does anyone still use these, or is it all kept on phone apps? I have a little bit in my phone memory, but I still mainly use the old-fashioned notebook type of keeping track. I use it all the time. Or maybe people just use what is called a planner?
I wind up making a mess sometimes of the book, by sticking stickers on it, stuffing other stickers in between the pages, and old envelopes that have addresses on them. I tape little notes of information in there, too, and lots of scribbles & doodles.
If you do, or did use these, do you keep them, even if they are filled up, or the addresses have changed as people move house? I do. I have lots of old ones. It’s fun to look back through them, to remember people I haven’t heard from in a long time, or remember different places our own selves have lived, at the addresses and phone numbers we used to remember so well.
There are lots more ways to use ‘dress’, but for now I’ll just wish you a wonderful weekend – dress however you want. 🙂
Here’s a couple of mine:
The first one is the current one, and I haven’t messed it up much, yet. The last one I had is a big mess.
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
