#SoCS for 7/13/19 ~ “Instructions”

Top O the Morning to Ya me Lucky Charms, they’re magically delicious!  Time for #SoCS.  I for one can’t believe it’s already middle of July.  Time you fickle construct of huMANs quit punking me!!!  The red squiggly line which you may not be able to see once this post is published means punking is not a word.  Oh but it is a made up verb for fooling.  Verbs ARE words.  The More You Know.  Ha!

This week the lovely Linda gives us the following prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “instructions.” Write instructions for anything you know how to do. As detailed or as rambling as you’d like. Enjoy!

Hmm!  Well shut the front door and don’t call me Shirley.  I remember this line … when reluctant pilot Ted Striker (Robert Hays) tells Dr. Rumack (Leslie Nielsen), “Surely you can’t be serious,” and Rumack replies, “I am serious — and don’t call me Shirley.  I still LOL everything I hear this line.

Or Don’t call me late for dinner.  Geez Louise!! Why am I doing this?!???

To win!  I have already succeeded had there been bonus points … for rambling that is.  I cannot “Keep a Thought in My Head” “I’m All Over the Place” “What Else is New?” “I Resemble that Remark” “Calgon Take Me Away” “And What’s All This Got to Do With the Price of Tea in China?”  Stop it with the incorrect quotation marks already would ya!!

“Instructions! … We don’t need no stinkin instructions … Or is it badges? We don’t need no stinkin’ badges!” It’s the latter from the 1974 film Blazing Saddles. This famous line is both a quote and a misquote.  My suggestion is you Google for more details because I am hot, I mean I am streaming!!!  Or it is steaming?  As in The Boys Are Back In Town by Thin Lizzy.  When I say she was cool she was red hot.  I mean, she was steamin’  Ooh I LOVE that song!!  Or all songs!  I haven’t met a song I didn’t like or is that a donut?  I have never met a donut I didn’t like.  And puhlesse don’t ask me to pick a favorite … song or donut.

Oh snap, Oh behave, Oh stop it already Jilly Beans.  “You don’t have to tell me twice!”  You have to tell me over and over again until “you’re blue in the face”

In closing, the only instructions for how to write a #SoCS post are there are no rules!! Wait!  There are eight of them.  The first two say it all!  Minimal planning while letting  the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.  Guess I am done now.  Until next week.

To join this merry band of prompt respondents and/or read their works extraordinaire, here are the rules aka instructions and ping back.

Happy Saturday all.  Now let’s go to the crossroads  where Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene has created lovely escape.  Aaahhh now that’s the stuff.

As always, more to come.

    1. I learned that’s the misquote. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre had a completely different line about badges. The we don’t need no … is a short handed version which comes from Blazing Saddles.

  1. Your words and songs totally carried me along. What does it say about my mind that I was with you every step of the way? (We grew up listening to the same radio waves?) Thanks for the laugh this morning!
