Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “which/witch/wich.”

Stream of Consciousness


Which day is today?

Stream of Consciousness Saturday of course. Today’s prompt is “which/witch/wich. Linda Hill also has some informative words. “Start your post with the word “which” and try to fit the word “witch” in somewhere if you can. Bonus points if you use a word that ends in “wich.” As an added rule this week, you will lose all the points you’ve ever earned if you type “which witch is which” anywhere in your post. Have fun!”  You think it is easy being a prompt head, don’t you? Well, so far I’m okay. I started the post with which so I have that done. Now to work in witch and a word ending in wich. If you would like to become addicted to this fun visit Linda Hill’s blog at  You can read all about how to take the first dose.

“Which one are you?”

“I’m the guy who drove you home.”

“Oh. Did I thank you for that help?”

“No, not really. I think the barf in my front seat was thanks enough.”

“My word. I did that?”

“ did. Your friends took care of the backseat.”

“My friends?”

“Yes, that group of guys who were with you.”

“Wow. I don’t even remember a group of guys. By the way how come you are still here this morning?”

“You swallowed my keys.”

“I did what?”

“You thought I was too drunk to drive, so you took my keys and swallowed them.”

“Were you?”

“Too drunk?”


“I don’t drink.  You were definitely drunk though.”

“Yeah, I get that. Soooo where did you sleep?”

“On your couch.”

“Thank goodness. you weren’t in my bed then.

“No, I was not in your bed.”

“I am such a witch sometimes. Er, I don’t mean that to be a bad thing. Um, you are handsome and everything but I was too drunk for love.”

“I understand. I think I better get going.”

“What about your keys?”

“Oh, you got rid of them about three-thirty and threw them to me.”

“Don’t tell me I heaved the keys.”

“On my chest. On your couch.”

“How can I make it up to you?”

“It’s okay. It was an interesting time for sure.”

“But you must have been miserable.”

“No. I found that the experience broadened my view of life.”

“How so?”

“Made me aware of new rules.”

“New rules? Like what?”

“Before being forced from a party to drive someone like you home, always grab a sandwich.”

“A sandwich?”

“A sandwich.”

“Why a sandwich?”

“You’ll always have a choice of what to eat when you have a sandwich.”


  1. I can tell you had fun with this one! Happy Saturday, John. 🙂

    1. It was a bit of a challenge. Happy Saturday to you, Jill* Sung to the tune of “I’m in Love Again,” by the late Fats Domino.

      1. Aw…great choice! 🙂

  2. Gwen Plano · ·

    LOL! Really? Just a couple of days to Halloween; I think you’re ready. 😀

    1. I did have an alternate ending but this is a family blog after all.

  3. Curious ending. Nice job.

    1. Might even say weird. How do you end a post with “wich?”

      1. Not sure. It’s really only part of a word, isn’t it?

      2. Yup. Not part of a lot of words either.

  4. Okay, that one was just plain fun. Totally unpredictable ending and I’m still trying to figure out how a sandwich would make that situation any better. 🙂

    1. Yeah. I have some confusion there as well. Thanks, Jan

  5. Really getting the Hallowe’en vibe now! 😛 Nice one John 😀

  6. Nicely done, good sir! I loved the line, “I think the barf in my front seat was thanks enough.” Tell it like it is!!!

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, John

  7. Well played as which is usual for you!

  8. I tend to avoid parties like that these days.

    1. I know what you mean. Me too.

  9. It’s been a long time since I was in a car with barfing friends. I hope it continues to get longer. Nice job on the prompt, John. Now you can clean up (the bonus points).

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, Dan.

  10. This was a fun read!

    1. Glad you liked it. 😀

  11. Well done, John. I think I’d leave the keys alone and walk. After this story, you must be ready to party.

    1. Ha ha ha. That may be. This was Stream of Consciousness after all.

  12. Your sandwich preference can say a lot about the kind of person that you are.

    1. How about Chicken, swiss, onion, and sun dried tomato on Sour Dough Italian bread

  13. That sounds great except for then onions.

    1. Your choice of sandwich sounds delicious, but I’ll take mine on whole grain, please.

      1. Whole grain it is, Michelle.

    2. Okay. Italian dressing then.

  14. This was great, John, and even I was perplexed about using “wich” so even though it was an interesting ending, it worked! 🙂 Happy Saturday!

    1. To be read weird ending. Thanks, Lauren.

      1. I didn’t say it was weird. But, now I’m hungry. 😀

  15. Very appropriate for Halloween weekend.
