Lots of Spots or Not – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Spot 

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 8/2020

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spot.” Write whatever image the word “spot” invokes. Have fun!

Today for SOCS we have ‘spot’ as the prompt. Thanks, Linda! To join in and to see other entries, just click the above link.

You sometimes see these kinds of mushrooms or toad stools as a decoration or whatever, because they look cute.

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

I never had a dog named Spot. I don’t think I ever had a dog that was spotted, either.

X marks the spot though, on things like pirate maps. That’s where you can find the treasure.

I like those picture games where you see two pictures with tiny differences between them. The game is to see if you can spot the different things.

We used to have a local small newspaper or magazine (can’t remember which, but it was a free thing you picked up at the supermarket). One of the regular features was photos of people around town doing things. The article was always called “Spotted”. We’d always scan the pictures to see if there was anyone we knew in them. I guess the photographer just went around snapping pictures of random people.

That’s all for now. If I keep going around saying ‘spot spot spot’ any more today I might be considered weird. But not really any weirder than usual, and it’s only me and the mister here, and he’s used to it. haha! 🙂

Pizza Surprise – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS – Sup

Standard

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. 🙂
