Pizza Surprise – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Sup

Pizza Surprise – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Sup

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 7/18

***

Here’s what our hostess, Linda G. Hill, has given us for our SOCS prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “sup.” Use it as a word or find a word that contains it. Have fun!

Thanks, Linda!

So, I quickly thought up some words that have ‘sup’ in them…well, these start with those letters. I’m sure there are more, but I didn’t look up any. Here’s the words I thought of to use:

  • Supper
  • supernatural
  • suppose
  • supreme
  • suppress
  • super
  • supercilious

Now, I’m going to try to make up a silly little story using the words, off the top of my head as I’m typing this.

Pizza Surprise

I decided to actually go out for my supper last night. That is, the evening meal. Pizza sounded pretty good, so I found a place not too far away. It’s a new restaurant that opened up recently, and is called Magic Pizza.

As I entered the funky establishment I was happily surprised. It looked like my kind of place, what with all the cool, hippie type decorations. So far, so good, I thought. I sat at a table, because this was actually a pretty fancy place for a pizza hangout. A waiter approached, bearing an oversized menu.

“For your perusal,” he said. (I thought he was being supercilious to the  max, and almost couldn’t suppress a giggle)

suppose he was just doing his job, though, so I smiled and said, “Super!)

I ordered the kind of pizza I wanted…a Supreme, with everything on it in the way of toppings. When it was brought to my table, it looked delicious…and it was.

Soon, I was full and feeling fine. So fine, I began singing a song, right there in front of everyone. That is so not like me, as I just can’t sing in tune, and normally would be embarrassed to break out in song with people watching me.

What’s going on? I couldn’t stop! Other customers were clapping and singing along with me. Then, the haughty waiter approached me again with the menu.

“For your perusal,” he said (again) and gave me a wink. “Read the small print,” he advised.

I could barely focus on the little words, but realization dawned on me. Magic Pizza…magic mushrooms…ohhh…

I started laughing hysterically at my not so supernatural experience at the Magic Pizza Parlor.

I believe I’ll be coming back again, soon!

Mushroom – Daily Post & NanoPoblano – Day 17

Mushroom – Daily Post & NanoPoblano – Day 17

Today is a combo of challenges – the NanoPoblano, and the Daily Post. The prompt word for the DP is mushroom.

Is this a mushroom or a toadstool? I have no idea, but we found it growing in our yard a long time ago.

Some say they are the same thing, but I did read that they are not the same. In either case, I wouldn’t recommend you eating a random yard ‘shroom. You never know what might happen. You could be fine with a tasty meal with mushrooms, you could be in for a wild, halucinogenic trip, or you could die. It’s not worth taking a chance.

I like mushrooms, at least the ones I buy at the store, or order in a restaurant. They are good cooked, and also raw. Here’s how I cook them: rinse a little to get the dirt off, slice, put in pan with squeezed lemon juice, and butter, then cover and simmer on very low heat for a little while (they will shrink). I use mushrooms in recipes and on pizza, too.

Here’s a few I grabbed out of a fairy garden I made. These ones are cute. I think I read that real red ones with white spots are deadly, though.

Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for today about mushrooms. 🙂
