Stream of Consciousness


t is Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again and this weeks prompt is, “sup.” Linda Hill advises that we can use it as part of a word or any other way we want. If you would like to join in and try your hand at these prompts, go to Linda’s blog and read how. Here is the link

Sup by John W. Howell © 2018

“Sup bra?”

“What are you doing?”

“Whatchew mean?”

“Talking like a hip-hop vocal group member.”

“I’m just tryin’ to expand my cultural knowledge. Don’t get all up in my grill.”

“Stop it.”

“All righty then.”

“Cut the Pet Detective bit as well.”

“Man you are no fun. You act like my supervisor at work.”

“Please don’t tell me you were pulling some of your antics with your boss.”

“I did my famous imitation of Steve Reeves.”

“Superman? Do you know how superficial that kind of thing looks?”

“Naw, he loved it.”

“How do you know?”

“I got an award as the Most Supercilious Employee of the Week.”

“Do you have any idea what supercilious means?”

“Well, any word that has “super” in it can’t be all bad.”

“Kill the W.C.Fields impersonation and listen to me.”

“Of all the gin joints in this world you had to step into mine.”

“Thanks, Bogy. Would it help to know that supercilious means thinking you are superior to everyone?”

“Well, maybe as Superman I was.”

“Your boss was pointing out your superficiality with a word he was pretty sure you wouldn’t understand.”

“I don’t think he would do that to Superman.”

“Would you please come back to reality.”

“Sure Doc.”

“Forget Bugs.”

“Sufferin’ succotash.”

“Drop Daffy.”

“T-T-That’s all folks.”

“You’ll be superb at the unemployment office.”



  1. […] salad is good, Cheryl. And, speaking of John Howell, I’ll have another splash of […]

    1. Thank you for the link, Dan

  2. Nicely done, John. I like the Daffy part. He is one of my favorite characters. Not sure what that says about me.

    1. I think it says you have a shrp mind and a great sense of humor. 😀

      1. I may have to quote you 🙂

      2. Use the correct spelling of sharp though.

  3. LOL! This was good, John. “Sufferin’ succotash” – greatest line ever! Happy Saturday!

    1. Happy Saturday to you, Jill *sung to the tune of Beverly Hills by Wheezer.

      1. I need to Google that song, John.😉

      2. You’ll like it I’m sure. Do the video on YouTube

      3. I like Weezer’s stuff. This one was good in that that old geezer Hugh Hefner did the opening. Using the word “Dudes” just seemed wrong.

  4. He could always be a party clown.

    1. Not a bad idea. Thanks, Charles.

  5. This feller needs to get a SAG card!
