Where You Go – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Where you go

And what you do

Is entirely

Up to you.

Worry not

What others

Might think.

It’s your choice,

So choose.

It’s your life;

Live it.

It’s your story;

Write it.

Framed- Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Anna and Bob were browsing through a thrift store. Neither had anything in particular that they wanted to look for, they were just killing time and seeing if there was anything that might catch their eye that they would be interested in.

Anna stopped at a shelf of knickknacks to look at some cute little cat figurines. Bob went to the next set of shelves to look at some pictures.

Anna was inspecting a set of salt and pepper shakers that looked like Siamese cats when she heard Bob call to her.

“Hey, Anna!” he called. “Look at this!”

Anna set the shakers down and turned to look.

Bob stood in the middle of the aisle with a wooden picture frame draped over his shoulders and a big grin on his face. “I’ve been framed!” he joked.

Anna rolled her eyes but a second later chuckled. She grabbed her cell phone and quickly snapped a picture. “You and your joke may be silly, Bob,” she said as she tapped some buttons on her phone, “but I can’t help it. I’ve got to get a picture of it and share it.”

“Go right ahead,” Bob said. “Share the laughs.”

And so she did, and the picture of the framed Bob was shared with the world, and it quickly went viral.

Mother – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Sherry grew so tired of people asking her “When are you going to have a baby?” and “Don’t you want to be a mother?” that she started saying that she already had a baby and showing off pictures of her cats while telling them that Mittens, Fluffy, and Gigi were her babies. She may have received funny looks in response and started being called a “crazy cat lady”, but she happily accepted the title.

Fun With Leaves – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

stream-of-consciousness-saturday-2018-19

 

 

Matt was out in his backyard, raking up leaves. His yard was fairly large and there were a lot of trees around, so he had been at it for quite a while. His big black and white Maine Coon cat, Sylvester, had joined him about halfway through his raking, and Matt would take a break now and then to watch the cat play with some of the leaves. Watching the cat play put a smile on his face and helped him to not feel quite so tired.

Sylvester was having a good time outside. He loved that Matt had put in a cat door a few months ago, allowing him to go in and out at will. He especially enjoyed it now that Autumn had come. The temperature was cooling off, and more importantly, the leaves were falling from the trees. Playing with the leaves was one of his favorite things. He loved the crackly sound they made under his paws. Batting them around was lots of fun, but what was even more fun was jumping and swatting at the leaves as they fell towards the ground.

But the most fun of all was jumping into the big pile of leaves after Matt had finished raking them. And it looked like Matt was just about done.

As Sylvester watched, Matt raked the last few leaves over to the big pile in the middle of the yard. Matt stepped back, let the rake fall to the ground, and wiped his brow.

“Whew,” he said tiredly. “Finally, it’s finished.”

Sylvester then took his cue. He ran at top speed for the pile, and before Matt knew what was happening, the big cat jumped right into the pile. Leaves went flying everywhere while, from the center of the pile, Sylvester began jumping and swatting at the falling leaves nearest him.

Matt stared in horror and groaned, “Oh, Sylvester, no. Why did you do that? Now I’ve got to start all over again.”

Sylvester paid him no mind. He was having too much fun with the leaves.
