Howdy neighbors! Time once again for #SoCS. One of the loveliest of lovelies, Linda G Hill, our proverbial host with the most gives us our weekly prompt. She writes and I repeat:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “frame.” Use it as a noun or a verb or any way you like. Have fun!
Hmm! Think, think, and think. The bird is the word. Nope frame is the word.
Crap! Effing ear worm. Now I won’t be able to think of anything else. Cuz the mind wants what the mind wants … you know?
The very first thought bubble when I read the Friday reminder was not the above nonsense. Nope my first thought was freaking “Freeze Frame” by the J Geils Band. Yeppers. 80s gold I tell ya. I sat down and attempted to un-freeze my frame and let the stream take over but nope. My mind kept coming back to this song.
Now that that is out of my head and maybe into yours, I will move along.
Did y’all know I was a Blue Belle? Yep. And what the hell is a Blue Belle? Well it is a dance team member. And I was a crappy dancer. I could high kick though so there was that.
Now you’re wondering why? Just why is she telling us this? Well because that summer in the early 80s, we went to dance camp … the equivalent of band camp … but for drill and dance teams.
Oh no I feel an American Pie reference coming on. “This one time at band camp” says Alyson Hannigan. Nasty girl. Wait “my name is Janet. Miss Jackson if you’re nasty”.
For heaven’s sake, your name is Jilly Beans. Time to land the plane. Tell the fine folks what else you remembered after the song “Freeze Frame”.
At dance camp, we were separated into small groups to learn routines. I was paired up with SR and we were taught a dance to … you guessed it “Freeze Frame”. We had a prop which was a portrait style frame. Big enough for us to hold and stick on heads through with every click of the camera. We wore painters overalls with neon splatter all over them. Now I remember, this was the summer of 1982 … in the year of our lord. May we all bow our heads and pray … that this ramble ends soon.
And FIN aka done.
To join in with these prompt respondents and/or read their works extraordinaire, here are the rules and ping back.
As always, more to come.
