Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “View”



It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again. This week’s prompt is, “view.” Linda Hill authorized the use of view anyway we want. If you would like to visit her blog and try and figure out what is going on you can visit her post

“Hey down in front.”

“You talkin’ to me.”

“Yeah I’m talkin’ to you. Sit down.”

“I hope you can back that with a little more than words.”

“Yeah I can. Either you sit down, or I’ll sit you down. You are blocking my view.”

“Your view? Who died and made you king.”

“A couple more comments and you be taking your meals through  a straw.”

“Yeah, yeah. It sounds like you need a lesson. Come on up and we’ll have us a ball.”

“You and what army are going to make me come up there?”

“Don’t need an army. Just little ole me. By the way get me water from the kitchen.”

“Why do you always make an issue out of watching a football game?”

“Makes it more like we are at the stadium.”

“If I get the water will you sit down?”

“Of course I will dear.”
