Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Flyer/Ad

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 23/19

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “flyer/ad.” Look at the latest ad you got in the mail (if it’s a store flyer, choose the product right in the middle of the page) or choose the next online ad you find, and theme your post on whatever the product is. Do not name the brand if you hate it, unless you add that it’s an opinion/review of the product in question. You don’t want to chance getting sued. Have fun!

Today’s prompt for SOCS is to talk about advertisements we get, either in the regular mail or on line. Thanks, Linda, for such an interesting prompt.

Well, we get some paper advertisements in the mail about once a week. We never look at them, as it goes right from the mailbox to the trash can. Sometimes I feel sorry for the postman for having to deliver all this trash to people. But, it’s a job, and I’m sure they are glad for it.

Since I have no ads to point to a certain item, I’ll just say something about the on line ads I get. Actually, I don’t get very many of these either, at least on my email notices.

Maybe once a month I get a special offer thing for a restaurant that we used to go to. That’s the key words – used to go to. We don’t go there any more, because the food quality has gone way down. When they first opened it was really good, and nothing is really wrong with it, but something happened, and it’s not so good any more. I find that’s true with a lot of places.

Another ad I get on email is for Crayola products. I don’t really look at them either, just delete. I can see why I do get those, though. It’s because I do the Crayola Color Challenge, and have for a few years.

I know this happens, but it is still strange. I’ll mention on my blog, or a comment in a blog about something, and then later go to facebook and I’ll get ads for whatever it was. The latest was about a new type of journal/writing notebook. How do they do this? I know this company doesn’t read my blog, so how do they know what I said? Kinda creepy!

That’s about it for this time. I think we’re going out to shop and for lunch in a little bit. (not at that place I mentioned!)

I’m really tempted to mention the name of the type of blue jeans my husband will be looking for when we go shopping, just to see if ads turn up for them later. But, I’m not going to. I don’t like seeing ads all over the place. 🙂

Hope y’all are having a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Ooey-Gooey – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Earworm

Ooey-Gooey – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Earworm 

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Sept. 8/18

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “earworm.” Talk about your latest earworm, or one that habitually haunts you. Enjoy!

***

Linda has asked us to write about ‘earworms’ for the SOCS challenge, today. Thanks, Linda!

Earworm, earworm, ooey gooey earworm…no, that’s not how the song goes.

The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out…no, that’s not it either, but it’s a really creepy song.

Earworm sounds pretty creepy, too, but it’s not all that bad. When you say you have an earworm, it means you have some song, or part of a song stuck in your head, and it keeps playing over and over until you’re sick of it.

Most times, for me, it’s a good song, and one I like, so I don’t mind. It helps to go play the actual song, so then you’re done with it.

The worst for me are the TV commercial ads songs. Ugh! I suppose that’s the purpose of them, to get you to remember their product. But, if I can’t stand the jingle, then I don’t want to buy their stuff.

If you want to, here’s a whole little story I wrote about earworms. 🙂 It’s creepy and funny! Some of you have read it before, but others haven’t, so…here’s the link to my story:
