This is where I say whatever I want about anything that crosses my mind…I’m sure it will ramble from one thing to another….just like I think. I will get distracted a lot! Have a laugh or two!

If the government offered to suspend all laws, and law enforcement for 24 hours, letting you (and everybody else) do whatever you wish… Would you be in favor of it, or not?  (Credit for this question goes to Cyranny and her Daily Quickie Question)

 

No .. it would be a free for all of chaos

What would be the creepiest thing you could say while passing a stranger on the street? (We’re suspending the whole social distancing and Covid involvement in this scenario)

 

Hi – I’m a ghost – can you see me?

As a child, what did you think would be great about being an adult, but isn’t as great as you thought it would be?

Probably being able to do whatever I wanted whenever I wanted to, and for many years it didn’t happen. But now I can and it’s pretty much great!

What, in your opinion, has been blown way out of proportion?

Just about anything you hear on the news medias

Boss

That is the random word I pointed to in the book I’m currently reading. It’s from a past chapter I’d read from the book, “The Golden Buddha”, by Clive Cussler.

You could say I’ve been bingeing on books by this author for the past month or so. I’ve read about 20 so far. They are really good.

So, the word … boss …

Over the years I had a lot of different jobs, so had a lot of bosses. Most all were good ones. I never had a problem with any of them. They were just there at the job place, and since the workers already knew what their job was, we just got going on them each day. I mostly did office type work, and a time or two did other things.

Probably the worst boss I ever had was myself! I tried selling Avon door to door. I was a bad boss and a bad salesperson. haha! 🙂

Have a great weekend!

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – First Thing

Standard

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – First Thing 

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 16th

***

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!

***

First thing …

Except there is never a real first thing, because there is always some thing before you get to the first thing.

You may have plans for doing a first thing, but before you can get to doing it there are several other things that have to happen first, before the actual first thing you want to do.

Say I want to make a post for this SOCS challenge. Well first I have to find the email notice that Linda has posted her prompt. Then I have to go there and copy/paste the address thing to my place. That’s to set the pingback.  Then I have to go back and copy the actual prompt, Go back to mine and paste it in. Then go back to hers and get the little picture, go back to mine and paste it in. Then it takes awhile to think of something to say.

Haven’t even got the first thing of writing a post, yet!

But I finally do, and then I sign off with my usual  … hit publish, and that is the –

Last thing

What should you get rid off, that would make your new year better, and why? (Don’t say Covid-19, we all want to get rid of the dang virus) … No More Snow!!!

 What’s the most daring thing you’ve ever done? … Maybe flying to Japan on my own, with a toddler and an infant.

Does your family have a “motto” – spoken or unspoken? … Not really, but I’ve heard this one a lot, and it’s stupid … “If you’re not cheating you’re not trying”, also we all know that Murphy’s Law saying – If anything can go wrong, it will – And it does, only we call it Spencer’s Curse.

On a scale of 1-10 how funny would you say you are?  (this does not mean ‘smell’ or looks; because this is a judgment free blog!)  … 10 of course! But not from trying to be. Mostly just from silly things that happen, go wrong, or being confused, saying wrong words. It makes my family laugh a lot. haha 🙂

The prompt for yesterday was something about a speech? I didn’t do that one because I didn’t know what to say about that except I don’t or have ever made a speech, and I don’t like listening to them either. Mostly they are boring. That would have been a boring post to just say that, too.

Today’s prompt is ‘in the corner’. Not much to say about that, either. I can’t remember ever being sent to stand or sit in a corner when I was a kid. I don’t remember ever sending my kids to the corner when they were kids, either.

So, what’s to say?

Sometimes I think I see things from the corner of my eyes. Sounds weird … like your eyes have corners? My eyes aren’t as good as they once were, so my side vision is not real good any more. That’s probably why I bump into things or knock things over … because I don’t see them.

I’ve heard about people going to their ‘corner’ store. I remember we used to have a store on a corner in our neighborhood. It’s where us kids used to go to get penny candy. I suppose a corner store doesn’t really have to be on the exact corner does it? Whatever or wherever it is, it is usually a small business, not like a big supermarket.

Anyway, that’s it for today. Happy New Year! 🙂

Pick three words to describe this past year.   (please keep them PG. Thanks). … Scary, sad, horrible

 

What were the best books you read this year?   Or the best movie you saw?  … No movies, but tons of books I’ve read this year. I re-read all my many series, most of my TBR piles, quite a few on Kindle, and now am even reading my Mr’s series by Clive Cussler – 7th book of those already.

 

Because there was lots of time for looking inward, what is one big personal lesson you learned this past year? … Don’t trust anybody except my family. Stay away from people (idiots who don’t follow safety protocols)

Do you think Covid has strengthened or weakened societal bonds? … Very much weakened. People (idiots) don’t care who they might infect. Everyone’s afraid of everyone.
