Stream Of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “Any.”



It is stream of consciousness time again and this week’s prompt is “any.” Also, there are extra points for using another word starting with “A.” Can it get any better than this? If you would like to join in, please visit Linda’s post and read how to do it. Here is the link.

“Any” by John W. Howell © 2017

“Aristotle wake up.”

Aw, what is going on?”

“Any time you want to get up will be fine.”

“After last night I’m lucky to be alive.”

“All the people at the party were staring at you.”

“Almost all. There were a couple looking at you.”

“After all, I had to hold you up.”

“Always have to build ourselves up at the expense of others do we?”

“Anterior to your show.”

“Alright, then I concede I was the bigger uh what shall I say?.”

“Ass. Just say it.”

“And now that you have it would be redundant.”

“Alleviate my pain and just say you are sorry.”

“Atone for my sins as it were?”


“Announcement time. No.”

“Abhorrent behavior.”

“Alcohol made me do it. Alcohol should apologize.”

“Abstinence should be your vow.”

“Abnormal behavior like that solves nothing.”

“About last night. Have you forgotten the wages of sin.”

“A moment if you will. I have the hair of the dog which will help me remember.”

“Another terrific move. You are not salvageable.”

“Amen brother. Good night again.”





  1. Nicely done with all the ‘A’ starts.

    A perfect April 1st story! 🙂

    1. Ha ha ha. I wrote it so late last night I forgot it was April 1. Could have thrown that in as well.

  3. Well done, John!

    1. Thanks Jill. 😀

  4. Always love these posts, John. Any time I read them I smile. Absolutely fantastic. Abundant hugs, my friend. 😀

    1. Thank you, Teagan. All the abundant hugs to you.

  5. ROFLMAO! 😀

    1. Thank you, Jan. 😀

  6. “Alcohol made me do it. Alcohol should apologize.”

    It would be impossible to count the number of times I could have used that line.

    1. I know right? Reminded me of the Brad Paisley song “Alcohol”

      1. That’s a cool video. Thanks, the song wasn’t familiar; pretty funny. Love the backdrop/effects.

      2. I think Brad’s songs are excellent.

  7. You made A good start, John. “Abstinence should be your vow.” – Hmmm, I hope I don’t hear that in my future 🙂

    1. Me too. I feel we should overdo anything.

  8. Lots of A words there. You should win a prize.

  9. A truly excellent job, John – every line starts with an “A” word… #AbsolutelyAwesome!

  10. This post was sweet salvation, John.

  11. Great job! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Cecilla

  12. LOL! Something new from you for me to discover. I am rarely around on weekends, but this Saturday was an exception and I got a chance to check out your stream of consciousness post–all so very clever! You never fail to amaze me with this stuff, John! 🙂
    P.S….no cookies?

    1. There was a herd of Bison who came through and trampled all the cookies (and the unfortunates eating them) Thanks for the weekend stop, Mae.

      1. Drat those Bison. I wanted peanut butter 🙂

      2. The elephants got them last week.

      3. You have quite the menagerie! 🙂

      4. All under one fictional roof.
