Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt -“GHT”

 

Stream of Consciousness

 

It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday, and since this week’s prompt is a bit tricky, I’m going to let Linda Hil explain it. Here are Linda’s words “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ght.” Find a word that contains the letters “ght” in that order, and use it any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use three or more different words containing those letters. Have fun!” If you would like this kind of challenge, go to Linda’s blog and read how. It is easy and fun. Here is the link.

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 9/19

GHT by John W. Howell © 2019

“Okay, it’s midnight, and you are still sitting at that table. You want to enlighten me as to what you are doing?

“I’d be delighted. I’m having a nightcap.”

“Well, you frightened me. I saw the light and thought you were a burglar.”

“That’s mighty funny. I guess I caught you off guard.”

“That you did. I might have called the cops.”

“I ought to have given you a warning. I’m glad it came to naught.”

” Except for the fact that now I’m uptight. I’m sure I can’t go straight back to sleep.”

“How about a draught of this slightly delightful bourbon?”

“I’m sure that brightens your day, but for me, it is too late at night.”

“To me, the moonlight and bourbon are downright perfect pairings.”

“Why don’t you go to a nightclub since I would like to get some sleep tonight?”

“That’s too farsighted for me. I think the thoughtful thing to do is to go to bed myself.”

“You are a righteous soul. You just saved me from being overwrought.”

“And you saved me by helping score the bonus points. You are a heavyweight.”

“I’m up for knighthood, I’m sure.”

“Keep that goal in sight.”

“Right.”
