Word Fun – Stream of Consciousness Saturday ‘ght’  

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 9/19

***

Today, for SOCS, our prompt is to use words with the letters, ‘ght’ in them. Thanks, Linda!

To join in this fun weekly challenge, just click the above link for details. You can see other entries, also.

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ght.” Find a word that contains the letters “ght” in that order, and use it any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use three or more different words containing those letters. Have fun!

***

***

I’m fraught with thought to think I ought to post a post of laughter

Caught within the ‘ght’ a night of fright

Bright ideas did not delight

Right about midnight I was taught

A regular post might be better

***

Yep, that’s me trying to cram a bunch of words with ‘ght’ into something … something …

And that was 13 of the ‘ght’ words. Oooh number 13!

Is that still the height (or heighth) of superstition, now that Halloween is past?

~

And now I’m back from a breakfast break. I look at the ‘ght’ words and they look funny. Seems the more you look at a word, or repeat a word it gets to being strange. Does that happen to you? Then you question whether it’s spelled right.

Height doesn’t look right, but I looked it up, and it is. I thought a rule (most of the time) was that i comes before e, but it doesn’t in this word.  Hmmm Still looks wrong.

Oh yeah, I was reading in my book while eating breakfast. It’s the 6th of a series called the ‘Gone’ books, by Michael Grant. The title of this one is “Light”.  A good case for serendipity! 🙂

Have a lovely weekend!

Witchy Fun

***

This is a poem I wrote for October Poetry Writing Month, way back in 2014.

There are a lot of TV and movie witches that have brought us fun entertainment over the years.

Being it’s getting close to Halloween again, I thought I’d re-post it. Enjoy! 🙂

WITCHY FUN

From Oz to Salem, to suburban mayhem,

The witches entertained us all.

The witch of the west, was creepy at best,

And Glinda was belle of the ball.

Samantha twitched her nose,

Whenever she chose, and

Sabrina’s cat talks to her, it is true.

Elphaba was wicked,

Endora was vivid…

They all were an interesting crew.

The Sanderson sisters were funny and camp,

The witches of Eastwick were duped…

They all used their craft, and a bit of their vamp,

But Morticia’s my all favorite champ.

~

Shows referenced = Bewitched, The Wizard of Oz, The Addams Family, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Hocus Pocus, The Witches of Eastwick, and Wicked (broadway play)

The questions & my answers:

1. What is The Nut Cracker?

A nut cracker is a dangerous game that kids used to play. It consisted of two, hard plastic balls attached by a string. They made a clacking noise when hit together, like cracking nuts.

2. Why are Pandas black and white?

It’s to illustrate the old joke about ‘what’s black & white & red all over’. It’s the before sample.

3. If storms are in teacups, and pools are in whirls, what puts us in a spin?

When we get an ear infection that gives us vertigo = lots of dizzy spinning.

4. What do chocolate buttons operate?

I suppose chocolate buttons operate on chocolate bunnies candy.

5. If we are flirty at thirty, naughty at forty and thrifty or nifty at fifty, what are we at sixty?

It means we’ve passed all the previous levels of the game of life, and now we’re on level sixty.

6. Why isn’t orange blossom orange?

Too much of a good thing is too much.

7. What’s this fly doing in my soup?

Synchronized swimming.

Two guitar players and a drummer having a jam session.

9. Why was Rudolph’s nose red?

It was the prototype of the later editions of the magic 8 Ball. It answered questions, too.

Her face was frozen from having Botox and she couldn’t move her mouth.

Rambling – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Ground

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Oct. 12/19

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ground.” Use it as a noun or a verb in any tense (i.e. grind). Have fun!

Today for SOCS, Linda G. Hill, has given us the prompt word – ground. Thanks, Linda!

To join in this weekly challenge, and see other entries, just click the above link. It’s fun!

***

I’ve been trying to think of something wonderful and interesting to say about ‘ground’. Not much is coming to me … except … song snippets of which I’ve kept being silly and making up new lyrics. Really lame. Here’s a few:

To the tune of the Beach Boys “I Get Around”  = ‘ground, ground, ground, ground I get aground’

And now, wouldn’t you know it, I can’t remember the other ones I was thinking about earlier.

There was a girl I knew many years ago, and I didn’t like the way she said the word ‘ground’. She pronounced it ‘gurr ound’ with two syllables.

Oh, some people say ground beef, or ground round, but we just call it hamburger meat.

I heard there were some actors who got their show business start in a group called the ‘groundlings’. I have no idea what that was, but I think some of them went on to be part of the early Saturday Night Live cast.

And now, I’m just trying to think of something else to add, but I can’t, so I’ll just end it here.

Have a fun weekend!
