Which way will this stream of consciousness flow today? Hmmm. Well, I cannot do my usual think, think, think because … well because there are additional instructions today that I must follow for points. Glorious points!!!!
Wait! Well was two weeks ago. You are behind the times J-Dub. Move along.
Start with Which. Check.
Add witch in there somewhere. Check.
This is Halloween weekend. Ever wonder why people are calling it that. Halloween is a day … falls on a Tuesday this year. There is no such thing as Halloween weekend until the day of Halloween falls on a weekend again. I believe folks are just looking for excuses to have fun and eat candy.
I have always loved Halloween. For decades, the grade school I attended had our fall carnival on the last Saturday of October. Halloween themed with haunted house and cardboard tunnel maze to crawl through. A fish pond and cake walk. We got to wear our costumes. I was a witch one year. I was also Frankenstein and Casper. There was also a sock hop and a raffle. Good times I tell ya!
Now I know what you’re thinking. J-Dub grew up in the 1950’s. Sock hopping and all that but nope. The 1950’s were the generation before my own. I did however enjoy a bucolic existence. Very Mayberry. Ours was a small community like the bar Cheers where everybody knows your name.
Oh and you’re also thinking how many times is one time too many to write Halloween in a post? Six, the answer is six!
This year the school shuttered its’ doors due to lack of enrollment. I find that very sad but inevitably. No one lives inside the loop anymore. The parish is shrinking. I won’t belabor the point though. I have fond memories that will live on forever. People for who at time in my life were my everything! People who helped shape me into the person I am today.
Shame on all of you! I am a neurotic mess. Lol! I only jest. Kind of, sort of, not really.
Okay, bring it home girlie. Use a word that ends with wich. Well, … Here we go again; well was the prompt two weeks ago. Stop it! I’m telling. There is only one word I can think of and that word is sandwich.
Happy Saturday y’all. I hope you have enjoyed this rambling mess as much as I have enjoyed writing it. From the mind of one J-Dub McGillicutty with special thanks to Linda G. Hill’s #SoCS prompt for 10/28/17. Here are the Rules and Ping Back Play along if you dare. BWHAHAHAHA.
