Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “Stick”

a socs-badge








Saturday Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again. This week’s prompt is “Stick.” The word can be used in any form or maybe all. Who knows? If you want to have this kind of frustration fun go to Linda Hill’s site and read all about it here is my interpretation. I hope you like it.

“I have to ask you why you are bent over like that?”

“I am looking for water.”

“For water? What is that you are holding/”

“It’s a divining rod.”

“Ha. It looks like a stick to me.”

“That’s because you stick to your usual practical comfort zone.”

“Comfort zone? At least I stick to the normal practices.”

“I don’t call your practices normal.”

“And you pointing a stick at the ground is normal?”

“Stand back. I hear something.”

“What do you hear?”

“The sound of money rumbling underground.”


“Yeah, water is money. Stick with me my friend and we will be rich.”

“Stick with you and get locked up.”

“You are like a stick in the eye.”

“Well, you can stick your stick if you get my drift.”

“Nice. Look out here comes the geyser.”

“Still waiting. Better stick to normal practice.”
