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 or single word. 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 the 28th and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “throw in the towel.” Use the phrase “throw in the towel” somewhere in your post. Enjoy!

Throw in the Towel

To give up to concede
When it is too difficult
To slow your pace give up the lead
When the going gets tough
Shrug your shoulders and say enough
When you can no longer duck the punches.
The gym implodes you can do no more crunches.
That job has taken so long it makes you scowl.
Give up, give in, throw in the towel.

Family Maths

First there was me then I met you
We united and that made us two
Growing close we became one
Then a new life came along
We became two plus one.
Moving on and we soon had another one
Our total rising up to four
A nice round figure, then along came one more!
Our numbers added up to five
Our youngsters keep us alive.
Five was our sum for a long while
Then number five met number six and that Made us all smile.
So there we stayed for a while.
Not quite the same as before
Different for all, then suddenly we find there is one more!
So here we are at seven
All is good and seems like heaven.
We all learn new roles and tricks
As grandparents and uncles we enter the mix.
We just get it off all pat
When number eight lands on the mat!
So here we are a family of eight
There may be more and that will be great.

Always tides ebb and flow

Nature’s way
Count on
It

Daily Prompt – JusJoJan the 20th, 2023

Our host LindaGHill is here again with our daily prompt for JuJoJan and here’s what she said: “Hi! I’m here with your daily prompt. Today is our twentieth prompt for Just Jot it January 2023, and it’s brought to us by Tuba. Thank you, Tuba! Please be sure to visit Tuba’s blog to read her posts and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 20th 2023, is “phantom.” Use the word “phantom” any way you’d like. Have fun!

If you’d like to see what I have so far on your prompt list and what’s to come, you can find it HERE.

Phantom, that’s a neat word, it can refer to pregnancy, symptoms, people, creatures, ghosts and the supernatural.

The Lloyd/ Webber musical and film are among my favourite stories and the music 🎶 and singing are amazing. I thought though let’s go sideways and listen to Nightwish a Heavy metal, symphonic metal, power metal group from Finland, with female Dutch singer Floor Jansen. Floor has an amazing voice she can sing soprano with a range of more than three octaves (C3 to F6). As well as rasping rock and heavy metal.

The male singer Marko Tapani Hietala so has a fantastic voice though not operatic in the real sense but with power depth and feeling and brilliant diction. I hear ever word from both singers.

Just look at how they have the young audience in their hands,bmoving them and showing them how opera and metal can mix.

Did I say how much I like long hair on a guy?

To finnish ( do you see what I did there?) An acrostic poem .

Phantom

Phantasmagorical sights
Hold you under their spell
Alluring spectres give your desires flight
Night terrors drag you to hell
Tormenting your mind and soul
Only to leave you naked while
Macarbre creatures eat you whole

If you’d like to see what I have so far on your prompt list and what’s to come, you can find it HERE.

I used  to  work in  Customer Services  in a large  supermarket, I had  to deal  with  all sorts of  complaints, difficult  customers, visitors  and  queries… Not  mention  take orders  for  party  food  and  cakes  and  at  Christmas, Turkeys  and  Geese! Easy  one hand  tied  behind your  back  stuff!

Well  you  would  not  believe some of  the daft  things   we had  to  deal  with. EG : Lady  wearing  Barbour  Jacket  and  headscarf  throws any  empty  egg carton  at  me . ” These  eggs  all cracked  when I  boiled  them ”  she screeched! I  replied  that  eggs  do crack  when  they are boiled occasionally. “WRONG!” She replied “they never crack when I boil then! ” I will not  bore  you  with  what  happened  next  but in  the  end I gave  her  a refund  and  another  box  of  eggs! I also had  to  smile at  her  and apologise  for  her inconvenience??

Another  day  a woman  came up  to  the  desk  and told  me that her  husband  had  been in  at  the weekend  and  a cashier  has been  rude  to him. I asked if she had  the receipt so I could  see which cashier  had  served him. …. Imagine  my  delight  when  she handed  me  a bill  for  the Local Tesco’s … I  smiled  sweetly  and  said  sorry  madam  but  the  incident  did  not happen here.

I got  thing’s  wrong  too, one  evening  we were  checking  the returns  .. ” who  dealt  with  this prepacked  Colli ” the  supervisor  asked, I said  I had. “what  did  you  do  for  the customer ” she  asked  sounding  irritated. I told her  I  had  done  as always  given her  a replacement  and a refund. She  almost  smiled. “Great , they  are  from Marks  and Spencer’s”  we  did  all chuckle !

I  won’t  go on  but  below  is  an Acrostic  Nonet   about  the  time  a man  came in  and  thrust a bunch of  flowers into my  face. ” They  don’t  smell,  they are  seven days  old  and  were guarantied for ten day. ”  … what could I  do  apart  from smile?  Yes  a  refund  and  a new bunch of  flowers!
