Stream of Consciousness Saturday- Prompt “Ho”



It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again. This week’s prompt is “Ho.”

“Wait a minute. You are kidding right?”

“About what?”

“The Prompt.”

“No, I’m not kidding. Linda Hill put out the prompt ‘ho.”‘

“I thought this was a family oriented blog.”

“It is. What on Earth is the matter with you?”

“The matter with me? I’m not the one putting out prompts like ‘ho.”‘

“Oh, I get it. You think the word ‘ho’ has something to do with prostitutes.”

“You said it not me.”

“I wish I could just get on with the post and you would go away.”

“You could make that happen. In case you didn’t know this already, you are the one on the keyboard.”

“Let me tell you whatΒ Linda told me. Maybe this will clear it up. She said we need to use a word that contains ‘ho’ in that order.”

“Oh, so not the word ‘ho'”


“You being funny with a rhyme?”

“No not ‘ho’ but a word with ‘ho’ in it. Understand?”

“Yes, I do. You can now get on with it.”

“I’m pretty much out of space but here goes. ahem. How are you.”

“You are pathetic.”

“Why don’t you go to Linda’s site and read about it yourself and maybe you can do better. Here is the link .”

“Thanks. I mean I could think up better ‘ho’ words than ‘how.’ Hotel, howitzer, homebrew, honeybuns, horizontal, and I could go on forever.”

“Fine. Who cares now.”


  1. Your Stream of Consciousness posts are always good for a laugh, a Ho Ho Ho if you will.

    1. Thanks, Phil. Super compliment given how funny your stuff is. πŸ˜€

    Another good one, John. With the theme…my car license begins with UHO…and for the first time in my life, I can remember at least the first three letters. πŸ™‚

    1. Ha ha ha. I’m surprised the state let that one through. πŸ˜€

  3. LOL! Good one, John. Now I’m wishing I had a Honeybun to go with my coffee. Happy Saturday!

    1. Would be nice. I think I saw a Little Debbie here somewhere. (not!) πŸ˜€

  4. That’s pretty much where my mind went too. 😊

    1. Ha ha ha. Hard not to.:-D

  5. Hohoho! What? There’s Christmassy stuff in the shops already… πŸ˜‰

    1. I know. I went to buy the new lawnmower and had to wade through the trees and decorations to find it. πŸ™‚

  6. LOL. Despite the consumption of a breakfast of “toaster strudel” and coffee, now I have a yen for homebrew and honeybuns! Happy weekend hugs!

    1. Yum. πŸ˜€ Sumptuous Saturday, Teagan!!!! Hugs

      1. Oh, I like that one. I am so glad to see this Saturday. That’s perfect. A sumptuous Saturday to you too John!

  7. Ha, ha, that was a good ho. What did I just say?

    1. Ha ha ha. πŸ˜€

  8. Always good for a chuckle, John. πŸ™‚ Can’t believe that Gwen Plano of ALL people has a license plate that starts with UHO. I think I’d complain. πŸ™‚

    1. I had to laugh out loud at that one. πŸ˜€

  9. Gee, Gwen! I can’t believe you’d order a personalized license plate with UHO! Totally hilarious, John!

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, John

  10. Hahahha! Love it. Thanks for the laugh, John. πŸ˜€

    1. I got a chuckle as well. Thanks, Linda.

      1. That’s when you know you’re writing from somewhere a bit beyond yourself – when you can make yourself laugh. Great feeling, isn’t it? πŸ˜€
