The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 16th

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “first thing.” Start your post with the words, “first thing” and go from there. Bonus points if you end your post with the last thing. Have fun!

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

First thing I became aware of was that my mind wasn’t able to think clearly. I didn’t know what was wrong I only knew something was wrong. I was standing by the emergency pull in the bathroom, but my mind was focused on the one in my bedroom which was clear across the room. It connects to the guard downstairs and brings help. I struggled across the room and fell onto my bed pushing the emergency button as I fell. My memory ending with me being forced to walk to the stretcher and having the guard place my handbag on my lap and tell me he would lock my door was the last thing.

PS I didn’t know it, but I was in the clutches of an overdose. My kidneys had shut down, therefore no longer flushing out the opioids and since I was still taking them I was rapidly going into overdose. Blood pressure was rapidly dropping and I was shot full of Narcan over and over trying to bring me back. I could have died in my sleep if I hadn’t woken up and managed to hit the emergency button. By the time the guard had gotten here I was non-responsive for the most part. Only bits and pieces of that day remain in my memory. They shocked me with so much Narcan I went into withdrawal from the opioid and that was sheer painful torture.

For those of you joining SoCS for the first time, it’s a little different than the other prompts in that it’s not always a whole word. Much may be left up to your discretion: this week is no exception. Having said that, if you’re joining in from JusJoJan, don’t want to write stream of consciousness style, no worries. It’s up to you! If you do want to try it, please check out the rules below. It’s fun! Here’s your Saturday prompt:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “in the corner.” Write about whatever the image or thought of “in the corner” brings to mind. Have fun!

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! 

https://www.quaintrevival.com/

You can also use the Just Jot it January badge! To find the rules for Just Jot it January, click here.

Here are the rules for SoCS:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The’,” or simply a single word to get your started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read everyone’s! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later, or go to the previous week, by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find right below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

#JusJoJan, #SoCS, Non-Fiction, Prompt

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 9th

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sky’s the limit.” Write about something that has or seems to have no end. Enjoy!

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

Things that have no end. I think of the injustices in this world. There is always something new to take the place or add to the current injustices in the world. I don’t watch the news anymore since I just can’t stand to see what is going on whether it is our country (recent news) or other countries that have always suffered injustices. They never seem to end.

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & JusJoJan 2021 Daily Prompt – Jan. 2nd

IN THE CORNER

The very first thing that came to mind when I read this prompt was the day I was in Kindergarten and I was put in the corner for disobeying my teacher. Now she said I did something and I refused to admit that I did it and refused to apologize. Hell I was 6 years old what did you want from me? I also refused to stand there with my face to the wall. The teacher finally gave up. She wasn’t going to win that one. I was one stubborn little girl and I can still be stubborn as an adult so don’t mess with me when I make up my mind about something.

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

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

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.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 8/2020

2019-2020 SoCS Badge by Shelley! https://www.quaintrevival.com/

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!
