The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 21/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last thing you put in your fridge.” Start your post with the last thing you put in your fridge. Let your mind wander from there. Enjoy!

*****************************************************

Ok, now this will send a little weird, but for me it is a necessity. I live in public housing and so we have a population of unsavory characters including bugs of many types. In an effort to control these populations we are to take our trash to the trash chute every day. Now somedays that is not possible for me, plus I don’t like feeding these populations thereby increasing the said populations.

So the last thing I put in my refrigerator was a plastic bag from the grocery store. Any trash that is touched by food goes in that bag until it is taken to the trash chute. Regular trash can go in the trash cans and will be gathered when my aide is ready to fill a bag, but the food trash bag is emptied every night Monday through Friday when the aide is here and then sits overnight in the fridge Saturday and Sunday until she returns.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun, a verb, an adverb, or an adjective…use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

*****************************************************

I found myself divorced and I still possessed the wedding ring. I didn’t know what to do with it. I have been divorced 21 years and that stupid ring is till sitting in front of my face on my computer desk shelf. I tried to sell it, but it wasn’t worth anything. That should tell you something right there. It was a gold band with diamond chips all the way around. I didn’t have a real engagement ring and set because the first one we got was dirt cheap and you could almost break the metal by twisting it. My ex lost his ring almost immediately whether on purpose or not I still don’t now. So he bought me this second ring and it wasn’t worth crap either. So here it sits. I can’t bring myself to toss it and it isn’t worth anything and so I torment myself by looking at the ring box.

I remember just before we got divorced that I had been at work and the ring was loose and I tossed scrap plastic in the bin and the ring went flying. I had them shut the line down while I looked for it piece by piece in the scrap bin. Several people helped me and I couldn’t find it and I started to cry (obviously I still had feelings about the upcoming divorce). They got ready to start the line up again and just then I picked up some scrap to put back in the bin and the ring was caught up in the pile of containers. Talk about relief. I don’t know why I am so attached to the stupid ring. I could care less about the man who gave it to me.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “trick.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

*****************************************************

I do not like practical jokes and people who play nasty tricks on other people and then have the nerve to laugh at them. I find it cruel and inhumane. The same goes with animals. I hate to see people treat them terribly.

This is Teresa Smeigh from www.tessacandoit.com writing under a pen name. I am now using Tessa Dean and my new website/blog is www.tessadeanauthor.com.

Linda’s prompt: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “spot.” Write whatever image the word “spot” invokes. Have fun!

When I think of “spot” I think of the mascot of one of our local newspapers. “Spot” the dog used to come out to one of the addresses and it could be anywhere in the newpaper’s circulation. If the homeowner/renter’s spotted “Spot” the dog walking around the property and approached them, they would win the current jackpot.

Our address had been picked since I had been featured in the paper for an article they did on my job moving out of state and how we would be without our jobs. My husband spotted the dog figure moving around in our yard and approached him. They asked for me and since I had just gotten home from the midnight shift at work I was already in bed, but he came and got me and told me that “Spot” was outside and I needed to come out. We were just getting ready to leave on a trip for the Bahamas and our little jackpot of $400 was definitely appreciated. Our picture as a family, was taken with “Spot” and it was posted in the newspaper. Ahh the memories!
