Copper – SOCS – cent/sent/scent
This is the new prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Thanks to Dan for hosting this week, as Linda’s electricity has gone out! 🙂
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cent/scent/sent.” Use them in any form you like. Use one, use two or use them all. Bonus points if you use all three, and Cheryl will put your next drink on David’s tab. I know, you used to get bonus points for two, but inflation… Enjoy!
I’ve been thinking of something to say about these same sounding words. They all mean something different. So far all I’ve thought of is – The scent of a cent is copper. At least our cents, pennies, are made of copper, and they smell of it. Copper has a distinctive smell. At least to me it does.
My dad was a master plumber, and worked a whole lot with copper pipes in his work. I like the color of copper – a sort of golden and orangy sheen, and it also will turn green sometimes.
I used to take baton lessons in the summer time. It was fun. I think I had a regular twirling baton. It wasn’t official, but one easily bought at a store. It was made of some silver metal, with white rubber tips (one large and one small). For some reason I needed another one, and my dad made me one from a length of copper pipe, which we then put on the white tips. It worked just fine, but my fingers smelled with the scent of copper.
I think I’ve heard of copper being good as worn as a bracelet for the relief of arthritis or something. I have no idea if that is true or not. I do have some jewelry that has copper in it, though.
Well, guess that’s enough and so far I’ve used cent and scent prompt words. Now I will get this sent on to be read. Got all three! Yay! 🙂
Here’s a coil of small copper piping and a copper plumbing pipe we have out in the garage. I’ve not smelled of it to see if the scent is a normal copper smell.
What can be more copper colored than actual copper? Found this copper pipe, and copper coils out in our garage. 🙂
Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️
