Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “Ha”

Stream Of Consciousness Saturday

It is Saturday and time for some more Stream of Consciousness. Linda Hill has picked the prompt “ha.” In her benevolence, she is allowing the use of ‘ha” straight up or as the starting part of a word or words. If you would like to participate in the fun, go to Linda’s blog and see how. Don’t be afraid it only hurts for a little while.

Ha by John w. Howellย ยฉ 2016

“Harold come here.”

“Okay, Hap. What do you want?”

“Did you read the latest hair-raising story ion the internet?”

No. I have better things to do with my time than hang onto a computer all day.”

“Happens there have been aliens spotted in Washington.”

“Well, that’s happy news. Maybe some will take over Congress.”

“I’m serious. I haven’t left this screen all day. It is horrifying.”

“Hand me the laptop. What are you talking about?”

“Look at the beings on the mall. They look like they are getting ready to fight. Look at that hag with the pitchfork.”

“I see them Hap. It looks like one of those zombie movies. Look at the guy with the hat.”

“You think it’s a movie? I have to admit I have a computer habit. Could I have been sucked in?”

“I hate to tell you, but yes. You’ve been sucked in. This film is a B-movie made in the sixty’s.”

“No wonder I didn’t know it. It was made before I was hatched.” (allowance for no fixing mistakes)

“I also think you were pretty hasty in your conclusion.”

“Don’t be a Harpy. I get it.”

“Okay, no harm done.”

“I hated the sixty’s.”

“Time to halt this conversation.”



  1. Let’s hope the aliens take over Washington…they might do a better job. Nice one, John. Happy Saturday!

    1. Thanks Jill. Happy day to you as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hmmmm…. I’m inclined to agree with the idea that Washington if full of extraterrestrials. Wasn’t there an old movie where all the aliens had something weird about their pinkie fingers? They’ve been working on the scheduled re-do (supposedly every 5 years — mine hasn’t been done in 9) of my background check since October and still haven’t finished. If it’s that complicated, why not just check everybody’s pinkie? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Huge hugs

    1. Ha ha ha. I think you are on to something. Hugs.

  3. We could probably improve the situation in Washington with s few zombies, John. The fifties & sixties certainly were a great time for bad movies ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Sp true. Add a drive-in and you have a big mess.

      1. Oh, now you have me thinking, John. Double feature: “Revenge of the Zombie Senators” and “The Dead Return to the Hill” – Let’s all go to the lobby –

      2. Loved the clip.Got me some more orange juice to go with my vodka

      3. ha ha ha – good one John.

  4. Love it John….references to Washington could be prophetic in the current climate,

    1. Yes. Thanks Michael

  5. HaHa, good one, John!

  6. Now I want to go to the drive-in. Looks like a bunch of kids movies this weekend.

    1. Grab a growler and go.

      1. Great idea as long as my wife drives.

  7. Aliens have already taken over Washington. I thought you knew that. Ha.

    1. Shoot. I’m way too late.

  8. You certainly made good use of the prompt ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for visiting.

  9. Should just watch the news…wait… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. This has made me smile and laugh, John.

    1. Perfect. Thanks Hook.

  11. Ha! They’re orange; they must be aliens. Oh wait, that’s only one guy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. But he’s a loud one.

      2. The loudest. Darn it.
