Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt “yule/you’ll/Yul”

Stream of Consciousness


You’ll not believe it is Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again. This week’s prompt is “yule/you’ll/Yul.” Linda Hill says to start the post with one of them. Now you know why the first sentence was so goofy. If you would like to join this band of misfits, visit Linda’s blog and read all about how. Here is the link.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 23/17

Yule/you’ll/Yul by John W. Howell © 2017

“What is your name , son?”



“Yes, sir?”

“You’ll have to give me a hand here.”

“Yes sir. What are you doing?”

“Trying to get this Yule log into the sleigh.”

“Not sure you have the strength for that, sir.”

“Guess why I asked you for help?”

“Not sure.”

“You kidding me?”

“No sir.”

“Because I don’t have the strength.”

“Ah. We are on the same page.”

“So grab the end there.”


“Heavy right?”


“We are almost there.”

“There. We have it in the sleigh.”

“Thank you, Yul. You were a big help.”


“Yes, Yul.”

“I hope you’ll have a Merry Christmas.”

“Thank you, Yul. I hope you’ll have the same.”

“I think I will.”

“You think?”

“Yes. Especially if you give me your wallet.”



  1. […] “Bourbon! John Howell’s Bourbon!” […]

  2. Great job, John! I had Yul Brynner in my head from the start. 🙂 Happy Saturday!

    1. Happy Saturday to you, Jill. *sung to the tune of Silent Night by Nat King Cole.

      1. Nice! Thank you, John.

  3. If that’s Santa, that boy’s in a heap of trouble. Where’s Tiny, the kickboxing reindeer when you need him?

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks, Dan

    2. Ha!!! I can’t top Dan’s comment. But I do hope for a story about Tiny, the kickboxing reindeer. Merry Christmas, guys. Hugs.

      1. Ha haha. Thanks, Teagan

    You’ll keep us wondering as we watch the Yule log burn if Yul is joshing or not. 😀 Thank you for the morning chuckle, John. As always, great job.

    1. Thank you, Gwen. Have a super day. 😀

  5. I was so ready to write about how nice it was and then that last line came. Good one.

    1. There was a check box on naughty or nice. Had to go with my DNA. 😀

      1. Permanently naughty. A nice way to live.

      2. Yup. Thanks, Charles.

  6. That went downhill fast. Maybe there’s a bailbondsman’s card in the wallet.

    1. Ha ha ha. Downhill is a fast ride for sure.

  7. We had an Uncle Yuletide in our Christmas Program. This was funny…another wallet is ideal this time of year.

    1. Yes. Involuntary gifting opportunity.

  8. You’ll enjoy the Yule with Yul, AKA John Howell!

    1. Ha hah a. Thanks, Billy Ray.
