#SoCS for 8/18/18 ~ -ic or -ical

Happy last Saturday with the kidlet before she returns to school.  This time I won’t cry.  Each year her leaving me gets easier.  Hard to believe a full year has passed.  Seems like ages really.  Time that fickle B word.  As you recall Lulu came home from school and almost immediately had surgery.  Memorial Day weekend 2017 to be exact.  After a summer of convalescing, it was time to go back but that bastard Harvey was storming all over the place.  Corpus Christi was mainly spared but still a delayed start to the school year just the same.  This year we are back on track.

Also happy last Saturday to use this badge:

Was a good run while it lasted but all good things must come to an end.  Really now?  Must they?  I am asking for a friend.  Hehe.  I am asking unrelated to the badge retirement.  In general I want to know why must all good things come to an end?

Or is it good things come to those who wait?  Hmmm.  Maybe I am mixing up expressions. Or am I delaying the inevitable?  Why? you ask.  Well see what Linda did here.  This is the prompt she gave us:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-ic or -ical.” Find a word that uses the suffix “-ic” or “-ical.” Bonus points if you use both. Have fun!

What the what do I do now?  That’s hard y’all.  My head hurts.

Think, think, and think.

for -ic all I got is sic.  I write after all and should know what sic means.  I don’t.  Never did.  I Googled it.  Still don’t.  Still never did. Ha!  Okay so sic is used after a word to designate use verbatim or as is even if incorrect. Booyah (sic)

for -ical all I got is MUSICAL!  The BEST -ical of them all.  Broadway baby!  Time to go back.  Of course I have little Broadway aka E. Houston Street home of the Majestic.  This year I purchased season tickets which include Hamilton!  Don’t be jealous.  Okay be a little jealous.  It’s okay.

And with that, beep, beep, beep went my timer.  And we’re off to wherever the wind blows us even if that is just to the living room set up for at home spa day :).

If you’d like to join this band of prompt respondents or read their works extraordinaire, here are the Rules and Ping Back

As always, more to come.

  1. I LOVE a good musical. Tickets for Hamilton were going on sale in Durham this morning but I misunderstood and thought the *online* sale would open up — turns out they were at the actual theater. Realized it about 3 hours after wristbands were given out for the early birds. Guess we’re not seeing Hamilton this winter!
    Loved your socs entry!

    1. Awww. I’m sorry to hear. I was lucky that the Hamilton tickets were part of the season tickets subscription. I have never subscribed to a whole season before because usually there’s two maybe three shows that I don’t care for in the mix. This year though every single show is great! And Hamilton is icing on the cake.

  2. After my kids were older, I was ready to get back to the routine of school days. I’ve enjoyed to peace and calm of your stream badge.

    1. There is definitely something to be said for routine. I miss that view from the badge. I need to make time to walk at lunch. I sort of gave that up when it got hotter but that could just be an excuse.

  3. You must feel like Miss America…the one that has to give up her crown and sash. You did a great job completing your year-long duties and satisfying today’s prompt. Happy Saturday!

  4. [sic] is one of my favorite things in the word world. When someone says something stupid, or spells a word wrong, in a tweet say, then using [sic] when reporting it lets the reader know that the idiot who said it or wrote it was the moron who used or spelled it wrong or said it wrong. It’s one of my favorite Latin thingy, meaning that what is written is verbatim from the speaker/writer. Thanks for choosing my favorite Latin thingy! 🙂

    Your badge is lovely. I’ll miss it. One of these days, I hope to do SoCS.

    1. Like when a certain president spells something wrong and people quote his tweet. Example from recent tweets: he mentioned the Marine Corps, but spelled it Core. So if putting that in print, you would write “…. Marine Core [sic]…” Methinks people use [sic] a lot when quoting our current president.

    2. Me too mainly because it showcases my hometown. And Yay! Glad I picked your favorite Latin thingy! I learned through Google there is Latin, Scottish and one other form of sic. I can’t keep it straight. Definitely join us for SoCS. It’s loads of FUN!!
