“Hello! I’m Troy McClure. You may remember me from such self-help videos as Smoke Yourself Thin and Get Confident, Stupid.”
No you’re not Troy McClure. You’re silly Jilly. And getting warmed up for #SoCS where today our guest host Dan says:
This is Dan from No Facilities, filling in for Linda. Contrary to my usual style, let’s cut the chit-chat and get down to business. Here’s your SoCS prompt:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ent” “ten” “net.” Use one, use two or use all three (bonus points for using two, double-bonus points for using all three). As Linda would say, use ’em any way you’d like. Enjoy!
How do you like that? A test. This is a test of the emergency broadcast system. This is only a test. And there is extra credit. I like the nightlife baby, she says … Let’s go!
RIP Ric Ocasek.
For ent, all I have is ENT = ear nose and throat. I think of lil Pony getting tubes in his ears at age 3. After that, he never had another ear ache again but by then he had lost 10% of his hearing in his left ear. Poor lil guy. All better now.
Ten makes me think of my buddy Dave. Cancer survivor and overall great guy who I have known for 50 years! Hard to believe we are that old since when I see him, we are six years old and in first grade. His standard shtick on FB to anything that is family related, not politics, and NOT over all general bull shit, is to comment by throwing up a picture of a ten. Like this …
A picture really is worth a thousand words. Maybe I should become a photography blogger? Hmmm, moving on to net.
I was good at the net. Pride is a venial sin but I was really good if I do say so myself. What net? The volleyball net. Setter to the stars! I stunk up the place when I started playing way back in 3rd grade. By 4th grade, I was most improved. By 7th grade, I made the all star team. As a freshman, I made JV. Sophomore year, I was on varsity. Or I should say I got to practice and go to the tournaments with varsity. Norma was our starter and she was way better than really good. I wish I was still playing. The game as I once knew it has been taken to an entirely new level. LOVE watching these days but would really love to get back out there on the court. Without breaking an arm of course.
And fin! If you’d like to have fun too by joining this merry band of prompt respondents, here are the rules and ping back.
As always, more to come.
