Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt Finger


a new socs-badge-2015

It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again. I would never have believed the word “finger” and Linda Hill would ever be associated together. Well, this week the prompt is “Finger.” Linda says we can use it… er the prompt anyway we want. If you would like to know more about this craziness program you can go here and read on how you can participate.

Finger by John W. Howell © 2016

“Is that your age or IQ?”

“It’s the number of friends you have including yourself.”

“Yeah, amusing. Why don’t you quit it.”

“Quit giving you the finger.’

“No, quit showing everyone how stupid you are.”

“Well, you’re the one who started it.”

“Started it? All I said was you shouldn’t wear that jacket.”

“And I said it’s my choice.”

“And I said you will be sorry when someone asks you if you are a Denver Broncos fan.”

“Why would I be sorry?”

“Cause you don’t know anything about the Broncos or Denver for that matter.”

“Well, I do like the jacket.”

“Yeah I know. We are going to a place where that won’t help you much.”

“I’ll just tell everyone that I like the clothes.”

“I’m sure everyone will appreciate that distinction.”

“So why are people so particular?”

“They love their teams is all.”

“Where we going again?”

“To a bar called ” The Carolina Panthers Den.”


  1. Oh dear – he’ll stand out like a dishdash in a synagogue

  2. I foresee a man getting knocked off his high horse.

  3. Just carry a baseball bat and you’ll be fine. 😛

    1. Ha ha ha. Good one

  4. Ha ha! That last line took me by surprise, John! 🙂 #Keep Pounding!

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks Jill. Be sure to publish your new site. (please)

  5. I watched the 1991 Twins-Braves World Series (probably the best series ever) in a Washington DC sports bar. Our table was the only one rooting for the Twins…

    1. I’m sure the bar patrons enjoyed having you around

  6. Having walked into bars in Boston wearing Steelers shirts, I know how this might end John. Nicely done. It’s good to see someone go where I was afraid to with this prompt.

  7. LOL… so Linda gave everybody the “finger” huh? I’m sure everyone is having a good time with it. Funny SocS post John. Mega hugs.

    1. Thanks Teagan. I need to go check. Been out for the morning.

  8. Finally,a reason to love Saturdays!
    Thanks, John.

    1. You are so nice Hook. Thanks.

  9. I’m out of the loop on this one (USA teams) but reckon it sounds a bit like sporting a Glasgow Celtic top in a Rangers pub. Could prove fatal. :/

    1. Exactly. You got it beautifully. 🙂

      1. Same the world over then. 🙂

  10. 😀 😀 I can see this isn’t going to end well. 😀 Love the jaw drop last line. o_O

    1. Thanks Tess. Enjoy the weekend

  11. Hear that whizzing noise? That’s the sound of this post going over my head.
    I get the gist though, so I still enjoyed it. (Sportsball, right?)

    1. Uh Yeah. American Football. The Denver Broncos play the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl this weekend.

      1. Ah, yep, ok. May the best team win, doing…whatever that is that they do.

      2. They insult each other and the best insult wins.

  12. Fun story. Go prepared to fight. 🙂

    1. I’m sure they will.

  13. Now there’s a dangerous outing. Hope nobody got their fingers broken. 😛

      1. The heads are usually the first to go. 😉
