Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Run

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “run.” Use it as a noun, a verb, use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

***

The prompt is ‘run’ and you know what – I don’t run – ever. I can’t even remember running when I was a kid. If I did, I probably fell down, being as clumsy as I’ve always been. I had fun riding my bike, skating, jump rope, pogo stick and things like that, but no running.

I hated P.E. in school because sometimes they wanted you to run. I wouldn’t do it. I hated those awful ugly gym suits, too. They were blue shorts, with a short sleeved top. Oh so ugly … and you had to have the shirt tucked in, and it had a collar. I don’t ever do any of those either. No collared shirts, no tucked in shirts, no short sleeved shirts, and definitely no shorts – ever. Except we had to in gym.

Oh does anyone remember wearing nylon stockings? We used to – with a garter belt to hook them to. This was before panty hose was invented. The stockings would get a ‘run’ in them, which was a snag, or a hole and the ‘runner’ would go all the way up and down the stocking. Sometimes you could catch it in time, and put a dab of clear fingernail polish on the run, and it would stop it. Of course later you’d have to peel the polish off your skin. Fun times – haha – not!

Well, enough of this run on thinking. Gotta run … nope … not gonna happen. 🙂

Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

    • Thanks, Priscilla! That’s wonderful that you do like to run or jog. It’s probably a good exercise, and if you are outdoors you enjoy the scenery, too. It just never appealed to me. Oh yes, those panty hose were so uncomfortable! Tight at the waist, and the crotch never coming up to where it should be. haha! 🙂

    • Thanks, JoAnna! I thought it was pretty neat when I got old enough to wear stockings and then panty hose, but later on, it wasn’t fun, and finally just quit altogether. 😉
