#SoCS ~ 6/27/20

Hola a todos mis amigos.  #SoCS has rolled around once again.  On tap for today the lovely Linda gives us the following:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “coffee, tea, or me.” Find a flirty phrase of your own or use “coffee, tea, or me” in your post. Have fun!

Ha!  Well I gave up coffee and tea (the way I like it) is too much trouble to make but I do enjoy a cuppa when it’s cold outside.  Except right not it’s summer time and the living is easy.  Now it is Jilly?  We’re in a freaking pandemic. In the midst of a spike. That’s hard not easy.  The re-open phase has stalled here in Texas. I never fully participated in the re-open anyway.  I was shelter in place even when not required.  And again, I realize I am beyond blessed to have that option.  Countless others are not as fortunate.

Okay here we go.  The prompt “coffee, tea, or me” makes me think of a stewardess. I think this was a book or a movie.  Some rom-com from the 70s but that’s pure conjecture.  Or maybe a cigarette girl.  You know the ones that walked through the speakeasy offering cigars, cigarettes, or candy to wealthy patrons hoping to get big tips. Or Mae West’s famous “why don’t you come up sometime and see me?”.  Or Melanie Griffith as Tess McGill in “Working Girl” saying “I have a head for business and a body for sin”.  So many flirty quotes, so little time.

Guess I’ll call it.  Time to mask it up and go out into the middle of nowhere to take graduation pictures.  Yep, Lulu Belle is almost done. The big day is 8/8/20 but of course commencement ceremonies are back on hold.  Still making the most of this milestone.

As always, more to come.

If you’d like to play along here are the rules and ping back.

  1. You hit it on great examples for the prompt. Sorry to hear about the spikes in Texas affecting graduation ceremonies. We had that in our area in early June. The drive-through pick-up your diploma parade was a hit with the kids – they’d rather do that than sit in the hot auditorium. I sometimes think they’re doing better with this whole ordeal than we parents are? Way to make the best of it! Congrats!!
