Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “KE”

a socs-badge


Stream of Consciousness Saturday and time for another prompt from the evil genius Linda Hill. Here prompt this week is ke. Yeah, you got that right ke, and it can be part of a word. What kind of monster person would have a prompt like that? If you want to know go here and see for yourself. Here is my interpretation of ke.

KE by John W. Howell © 2015

“So I called the guy at KE and you know what he said?”

“You take me for a mind reader? No, I don’t know and what is KE anyway?”

“KE is Kendall Energy. I put in for a job there and thought it would be a piece of cake.”

“So what did he say for heaven’s sake?”

“Mr. Kendall himself told me to take a hike.”

“No kidding. I thought you were on the fast track. Why’d he put on the brake?”

“He said my resume was a fake.”

“How’d he come to that decision? Sounds like a muck rake.”

“I thought so too. Then he asked me what kind of metal used in a transformer bake.”

“What the hell is that? What does the bake make?”

“That’s the problem. I had no way to avoid the fact that I had no idea. It was like being in a wake.”

“Why didn’t you know? You are an electrical engineer? You even know the source of a lightning quake.”

“I guess my nerves made me shake, and I forgot.”

“Here take this sake and relax. We need to do something else.”

“I think that’s key. Thanks.”
