Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “lid.” Use it in the literal sense, use it in the metaphorical sense, use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

***

So, today for SOCS we have the word or partial word ‘lid’. Thanks, Linda!

***

I only know a few things about a lid, such as the cover on a cooking pot, a sealing top of a jar of food, and I think it’s a measurement of some kind of drugs?

It’s always hard to get the lid off of a jar. I’ve strained my hand trying to unscrew the thing. I can sometimes stick a pointed kind of spoon under the edge and lever it so it pops the seal. Then you can open it easily. If all else fails, I call in the Mr. to give a strong hand at it. That usually always works.

Let’s see what else … some nonsense maybe?

Well, I’d thought of something, and now it’s gone … hang on a minute.

I have a lid that was not hid

There was a lide that tried to hide?

I tried and tried but off it flied?

Nope … not working!

I bid on a lid, but off it slid

A bird flied up … no … that would be flew

It doesn’t rhyme, and I never lied – subtract the e so you get lid?

I think I better end this now.

Have a fun weekend! 🙂

An ode to the toad with the node

A toad sings an ode to his node

The node is embarrassed and falls off.

~

Okay, think of something else …

~

My abode has a lodestone inside

But I need to solve the code to enter

And I’ve forgotten the numbers

~

There once was a store called Mode

It sold second-hand clothes for an ode

But I’ve got a tin ear so was out of luck

***

And that’s all I’ve got for today … Hope your weekend is fun!

JUMP RIGHT IN

Standard

JUMP RIGHT IN

Jump rope jingles

Recited in rhyme

One, two, three,

Will you be mine?

Double Dutch fun,

Then over-head

Hot pepper is fast,

Your face turns red

Chanted in cadence

To keep up the pace

Trip over your feet,

And lose your place.

NO!
