#SoCS for 6/22/19 ~ “Leaves”

Good morning Bloglandia!  Time once again for  #SoCS where the lovely Linda G Hill provides a place for us to roll with the proverbial flow.  Today she says and I quote:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “leaves.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Have fun!

Hmmm!  Leaves … noun or verb

“All the leaves are brown (All the leaves are brown) and the sky is grey …”

Nope, not right now.  In fact all the leaves are a vivid green.  Lush even.  Tis the 2nd day of summer.  Not winter.  And the sky? Well the sky is the bluest of blues filled with pillowy white clouds.  At least here in the great state of Texas, city of China Grove, at this very moment.

“Stopped into a church …”  Ugh not a “California Dreamin” ear worm.  Get out damn lyric!

Look at me all Lady Macbeth on this fine Saturday morn.

Everybody leaves me”  That line was Andy’s from the movie “Child’s Play”. The movie was re-released, remade, rebooted, who knows why?  Lack of originality maybe?  Still Lulu and I saw the movie yesterday on my day off.

I tell ya folks, for the times they are a changin’.  (not another ear worm, stop Bob Dylan!) The movie was filled with gratuitous violence. As a kid I loved horror movies but if memory serves we had only the hint of the gore, fake and very cheesy unlike yesterday where the scenes were life like.

But I am probably having one of those false positive memories – revisionist history – there is a term for it which escapes me but I do it all the time.  I remember things better than they actually were.  Though during the moment I make stuff up. 

Case in point: Recent health issue leaves me with a sick sense of waiting for the other shoe to drop.  Despite having test results which confirm I am essentially normal.  What a weirdo!

Now that’s not nice to call myself names.  Guess I will get ready for “The Play That Goes The Wrong Way”  last of the series for the 2018-2019 season.  After “Hamilton” I am out with a whimper.  Though I could be surprised since I have heard some good things about this play.

To join the shenanigans over at Linda’s place as reader or writer or both, look here for the rules and ping back.

As always, more to come.

  1. My test results are normal. So why am I so tired. That’s my cue to make stuff up, but instead let’s enjoy the moment and Sha na na na na na, Live for Today. If you’re gonna have an ear worm, at least they are good songs! LOVE California Dreamin.’

  2. I like the song bits most, because I relate to that. I actually did think “All the leaves are brown” when I read the prompt! I was right there with ya! I may well hum it all day!
