Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “When.”

Stream of Consciousness

 

When it is Stream of Consciousness Saturday time you know, I’m going to participate. This weeks prompt is “When.” One little twist of today’s prompt is that Linda Hill has asked that those participating begin their post with the word “when.” Now you know why I started this post the way I did. If you would like to join in on this fun, please visit Linda Hill’s blog. Here is the link.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 26/17

When by John W. Howell © 2017

“When did you make that up?”

“Make what up?”

“That story about the ghost.”

“I didn’t make that up.”

“Who did then?”

“No one made up a story it is true.”

“Oh, C’mon.There is no such thing as ghosts.”

“That’s what you think.”

“So how can you prove you saw a ghost?”

“That’s just it. I don’t need to prove it.”

“Why not?”

“There is a particular kind of person who can see a ghost.”

“Now you are talking crazy.”

“Here take a look at this photo.”

“Yeah.”

“What do you see?”

“A guy on a horse.”

“Does he look familiar?”

“Yes, it’s General Grant.”

“What if I told you it takes a ghost to see a ghost.”

“I would think you are nuts.”

“Turn around and tell me what you see.”

“Is that General Grant?”

“What do you think?”
