#SoCS for 6/20/20 ~ “ZZ”

She’s got legs, she knows to use them …

What are you doing?

Singing.

Tra la la boom di ay

Tra la la boom di ay

Why did I go there? Way back to grade school. Somehow I think “tr la la boom di ay” sets up a nasty limerick. I lost my a$$ today … nope that’s not it.

There once was a girl from Nantucket…

Again I ask. What are you doing?

It’s #SoCS and Linda prompted us with the following: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “zz.” Find a word with double-z in it and use it in your post. Enjoy!

Rio Grande Mud was the album by ZZ Top that my friend Nancy won by being the 9th caller and answering correctly. Does anyone else memba that? You could win albums, t-shirts, concert tickets and other assorted prizes from radio station contests. And we’re talking about a time with rotary phones. Being the 9th caller was no small feat.

Now we add a contact, then press one button.

When I first saw the prompt, my first thought was buzz. But I let my mind wander as “she’s got legs” popped unto my mind. Buzz could be good too. Bees buzz. Sangria gives me a buzz. I tried to order a bottle in my online grocery but they wouldn’t allow it. Here in Texas we can get drive through margaritas and a margarita truck comes through neighborhoods but I can’t get a bottle with my groceries.

And I’m not going in. Corona cases are spiking. If I got Corona or inadvertently was part of the spread because I was jonesing for alcohol, I never forgive myself.

And with that my stream is caught up on the rocks. Guess I’ll go … no where. But I’ll do something. We’re making cupcakes for Father’s Day.

To join the fun, here are the Rules and Ping Back

  1. I got through a couple times but didn’t win by dialing (or button pushing). I did win by sending in my email address though. That was the easiest! My son won an iPad once. Took the money instead.

  2. I was never any good at the call-in contests. We had one phone, attached to the wall in the kitchen, and by the time I got there they were already announcing the winner…

    Remember the contests where you had to guess how much money was in the kitty? They used to do that on “Dialing For Dollars” or whatever it was called in the local market, but we had radio stations doing it, too. First, you had to be the 9th (or whatever) caller, then you got to announce your guess on the radio, and if you didn’t win you had to wait half an hour to find out if that guess was high or low. It was a good way to keep you listening.
