Stream of Consciousness Saturday brings another opportunity to go crazy be creative with a prompt from the High Priestess of Promptness Linda Hill. Today’s prompt is “Information.” If you would like to join in go to Linda’s site and learn more.  Here is my interpretation.

“See that signpost up ahead?”

“Yeah what does it say?”

“I thought you said you could see it.”

“I can see it I just can’t read the words. They’re too small.”

“There is only one word.”

“Okay, what’s the word.”

“Really? You can’t see that one word. It’s huge.”

“No, I can’t see it. For the last time what does it say?”

“It starts with IN and ends in N.”

“Lots of help you are. How about injection?”

“Ha ha ha. No. I’ll give you another hint the third letter is an F The next to the last is an O.”

“This is ridiculous. We are getting closer, and I won’t have to play your stupid game in a few minutes.”

“So take a guess.”

“Okay INF and then ON. How about Infuriation?”

“Not even sure that’s a word but no. The next letter is an O and the third to last is an I.”

“Humm INFO and ION. Oh, I get it. Information.”

“Yay. You got it. Now let’s go in there and you can ask for directions since we have no idea where the hell we are and we have been wandering around for the last three hours.”



  1. This was different than usual 🙂

  2. I liked this take John but I really used to get irritated by word games such as you played here, mainly because I could never figure out the word….

    1. Me too Michael. I am the guy trying to figure it out and the guy who wonders what directions really are.

  3. Sad to say that, even though I knew the prompt, it took me a while to get this 😦

    1. Sometimes you have to say what you want to say first.

  4. I actually skipped the given word and went right to the story. Didn’t even read the post header and it took me a bit to figure it out. Great job.

  5. This sounds like me and crosswords, but not quite this dense. 😀 😀
    My guesses are better. 😛

    1. Ha ha ha. Good one.

  6. Hah, good one John. Those of us of the male persuasion can probably relate to this a little too well.

  7. Bwahahaha! 😈 Great one, John. Happy Saturday. Hugs.

  8. Good interpretation, John! I know it’s probably a generalization, but why is it males have so much trouble asking for directions??!

    1. Um directions? Well you see it’s like this. if men weren’t adverse to asking directions the whole GPS system would have never been developed. Men never want other men to know they don’t know where the hell they are. Now men don’t have to ask. The destination is handed to them.

        I saw it before, but it is gone now… but that’s okay 🙂

    2. Thank you for the visit and the comment and also for the follow.

  10. Hahaha. I would be the one who needed it spelled out for him.

    1. Aw go on. I’ll bet you stop and ask directions immediately.

      1. I would love to agree, but alas . . . I have crossed over state lines before it occurred to me that directions would be a really good idea. Thank God for GPS.

      2. I know what you mean
