A large box was left on the porch today. Since it wasn’t from Chewy, I was pretty sure Linda Hill had paid a visit with this week’s prompt. The box did have a sinister look about it. Sure enough, after a precautionary soak in a tub of water, here is what was inside.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “difference.” Whatever the word “difference” conjures first in your mind, write about it. Enjoy!
If you would like to enjoy little things like this and want to experience difference go to Linda’s blog and read how easy it is to participate.

“Hey, there, my man. Why are you hanging that wet paper on the line?”
“This is the prompt from Linda Hill.”
“Why is it wet?”
“I wanted to make sure it wasn’t from a bomber, so I soaked the package in water.”
“Surely you know the difference between Linda’s messages and something strange like a package from a bomber?”
“I don’t like to be called Shirley. Yes, I know the difference between a Chewy box and Linda’s. This one looked a little strange.”
“How so? Give me an example of the difference.”
“The return address on this one was blacked out.”
“Yeah, okay. That does show a difference.”
“There was a printed warning on the side.”
“What did it day.”
“Explosives – Do not drop.”
“A total difference for sure. Anything else?”
“Loud ticking is normal.”
“Hahahaha. I think Linda was playing a trick on you.”
“See, that just shows the difference between you and me.”
“You laugh at everything.”
“And you frown at everything.”
“Like I said, there is a difference between us. You see the glass as half full.”
“And you see the glass as half empty.”
“Yeah, a nice full glass of beer.”
“You’re turn to buy.”
“I’ll make it a pitcher.”
“Viva the difference.”
