Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again and this week’s prompt is “VIS.” Linda Hill in her graciousness has allowed us to use VIS any way we want. For more information about this painful, exciting prompt go here.

All VISITORS MUST CHECK IN said the sign on the receptionist’s desk. Vincent stopped and waited for the young lady to acknowledge him.

“Yes, sir. May I help you?”

“Yes, you may. I’m here to see Mr. Viscount.”

“Do you have an appointment?”

“I represent VIS Racing and yes I do.”

“Yes sir please sign in and I will call his assistant.”

“Thank you.”



“Mr. Viscount is in the visual studio and cannot be disturbed.”

“But I have an appointment for ten o’clock.”

“I understand, but his assistant said he has a concern with the stock price of VIS vis-a-vis other industrials.”

“What is VIS?”

“Vangard Industrials.”

“They’re my competition. Why is he so concerned?”

“I would say he stands to lose a lot of money and if so his partner as well.”

“Partner? How come?”

“The partner goes where the Visa card goes, and Mr. Vincent might be broke enough to lose his.”

“Do you have the partner’s phone number?”



  1. Kudos, John. I don’t know how you managed to come up with so many different ways to use VIS.
    Have a satisfying Saturday. Hugs.
