Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt – Indescribable

a new socs-badge-2015

Well, it is another Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This week’s prompt is “indescribable” and the dungeon master leader Miss Linda says we can use the actual word or base the post on something that defies description. (hmmm I guess that’s what the word means) If you would like to add additional stress meaning to your writing life why not go to Linda’s site and see what it takes. Here is the link, Here is my contribution.

Indescribable by John W. Howell © 2015

“So come on tell me what it was like.”

“You would not believe it. I was standing there, and all of a sudden a blinding light washed over me.”

“Then what happened?”

“Then this voice came out of the light and told me to buy a lotto ticket.”

“And you did?”

“No. Not then.”

“So what did you do?”

“Well, I went to the convenience store and asked the clerk what I should do.”

“Come on you’re killing me. What then?”

“She told me to go back to the light and find out the numbers to play.”

“That was excellent advice. Did you do it?”

“I sure did. The light was still there, and so I asked what numbers to play.”

“You got the numbers?”

“Well no. What happened next defies description.”

“Shoot me in the face. Finish the story.”

“The big ole light tells me to think of a number from one to one hundred.”

“What did you say?”

“I picked twenty-one.”

“Then what?”

“The light said, nope that ain’t it.”

“Okay, What happened next.”

“We did that six more times and each time the light told me I was wrong.”

“How does this end?”

“The light yelled at me, and my fear was indescribable.”

“What did the light yell?”

Quick pick you idiot, is what it said.”

“You are a sick person. You know that right?”

“I prefer indescribably eccentric.”

“Did you win?”


“Why not?”

“Didn’t play.”

“I’ll give you the count of three to take off running.”



  1. A totally indescribable tale John…have a good weekend….

    1. Thanks Michael. you as well.

  2. Ha! I’m ready to start chasing him too John. This one was hard. Nicely done.

    1. Thank you Dan. The trouble with SoCS is you can’t make repairs so you are stuck with the character goofiness.

      1. I’m always amazed sat your SoCS dialog. I tried doing it one week and I failed miserably. I did the ping back but I admitted that I had to edit. I got so tangled up that it didn’t make sense.

  3. You did it again! Smiling now 😉

    1. We all need to smile today

  4. Bravo. Very well done. 🙂

  5. hahah Always a pleasure!

  6. You are the master of these.

  7. I feel like chasing that guy too. Very cute. 🙂

  8. Ha ha! Well done, John.

  9. Ha! You had me laughing out loud, John. Wonderful.
    It reminds me of the old joke about the guy begging God to please please please let him win the lottery. God finally tells him to at least meet Him half way and buy a ticket. (It’s much funnier when told with the voice of God having a Scottish accent, as I heard it. Maybe I just think so because my ancestors were Scottish…) Mega hugs.

    1. LOLThanks. My maternal grandparents were from Scotland and first generation Americans. I loved the jokes told with the Scottish brogue and I could hear your punchline as delivered. Thanks and hugs back.

  10. Haha! Never believe an indescribable light. 😛

  11. Isn’t it amazing what comes up when we let go and allow imagination to have free reign? Cheers!

    1. Yes it is. Thank you for the visit and comment.

  12. I loved your “indescribable” tale, John! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friend.
