Stream Of Consciousness Friday – Prompt “Sign.”



It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday and this week’s prompt is “Sign.” Linda Hill says we can us the word any way we want and to have fun. If you would like to have some of this fun, go to Linda’s blog and read how. Here is the link.

Sign by John W. Howell © 2017

“Give me a sign.”

“Here’s a sign. ‘No Trespassing.”‘

“You dope I’m looking for a sign from the heavens.”

“What kind of sign?”

“A sign to tell me which way I should choose.”

“A sign to choose what?”

“I have two paths I can take. The first is to take this ten dollars I found and put it in the bank. So I need a sign.”

“What is the other path that a sign would help decide.”

“Do I go to the tavern and buy some beer sign.”

“Let me ask to clarify the sign need. Which path is on the left?”

“The bank path sign need is definitely on the left.”

“Oh look up ahead. There’s a sign.”

“I left my glasses what does the sign say?”

“The sign says, ‘Bear Right.'”

“I don’t suppose the sign says anything else does it.”

“No, that one doesn’t, but there is another sign.”

“And this sign says?”

“The sign says, ‘Take a pal to the Tavern.”‘

“You made up that sign.”

“Good idea for a sign though. Don’t you think?”

“That in itself is a sign. Let’s go.”
