Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “Drink.”

Stream Of Consciousness Saturday


It is Stream of Cconsciousness Saturday again. This week’s prompt is “Drink.” Linda Hill says we can use it as a verb or a noun or any other way we can think of using. If you would like to join in the fun, please go to Linda’s blog and find out how. Here is the link.


“Drink” by John W, Howell © 2016

“Oh, this is an easy one. Drink.”

“You must be nuts. I don’t think drink will be easy.”

“Sure it is. I’ll start. I’ll have a drink of water please.”

“What the hell was that form of drink?”

“It was a noun, you idiot. The drink was a person, place or thing.”

“Oh, I see. So if I said, ‘Here drink this,’ it would be a verb.”

“Now you are cooking with gas. Try this, ‘All you can drink for a buck.”‘

“Um. I would guess a verb, but I’m not sure.”

“You are right. How about this one, ‘He’s a tall drink of water.”‘

“Easy. Still a noun.”

“Man, you’re a genius. Have a drink on me.”

“Noun. Right?”

“Yes but we are finished with the drink grammar lesson.”


“Okay stop with calling out the use of drink.”

“Why don’t you stop using the word?”

“Maybe I’ll switch to drank?”

“Past tense of drink.”

“How about drunk.”

“Yeah, let’s.”


  1. Gets my vote, John.

  2. I’m going to have AC/DC stuck in my head for the rest of the day. 🙂 Happy Saturday, John!

    1. Thanks, Jill. Have a good one.

  3. A beautiful ending to an educational story.

    1. Thanks. Had to get out of it somehow.

  4. Good one, John. “Now you are cooking with gas” is an expression I haven’t heard in a long time, although I use it. I used it last week and got some funny looks. Thanks for including that.

    1. Hard to say “Now you’re cooking with electric.” Thanks, Dan.

  5. Ahhh, the English language…they say it is the hardest in the world to learn. Maybe, but one thing for sure, the words can be tricky! Always a challenge to us writers.

    1. So true. Thanks, Jan

  6. Super clever, John.

  7. LOL. The finale sounds pretty good to me! Have a satisfying Saturday, my friend. Mega hugs.

    1. It does. Super Saturday to you. Hugs

  8. Entertaining as ever. A wonderful way to begin my Saturday morning. Tee hee hee. Happy weekend.

    1. Thanks Tess. Happy weekend to you as well.

  9. HeeHee, nicely done! At least we don’t have to keep up with genders, too, right?!

    1. Nope. One saving value.

  10. What a hoot! Who knew grammar could be this fun? My students would have loved it!

    1. I’ll bet they would have.

  11. Drink: A professor of tattooing with bad grammar skills.

    Oops, wrong day.
