Instructions: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “mb.” Find a word that has those two letters in it, in that order, and base your post on it.
My first try at SoCS. I sure hope this is more successful than my tree climbing adventure when I was ten years old. My plan was to impress the twelve year old down the street by proving my tree sitting expertise. So like a lamb off to the slaughter, I prettied up my face, combed my hair, and put on a jaunty pinafore. I was going to impress my beau. I had planned my trap well by dropping cookie crumbs just like in the Hansel and Gretel story. By grabbing the first limb, I could climb to the next where I sat until my legs became numb. Just as my victim finds the first crumb, my numbed legs gave way and I dropped like a bomb in front of him. Feeling humbled and quite dumb, I mumbled some mumbo jumbo about my hurting jambed thumb, and ambled away with as much style as I could muster. Hope I’m never – from womb to the tomb – caught in such embarrassment again.
…….Disclaimer – Not a word of truth in the above story. But if I had had a tree, if I had had a beau, if I had had a street, and if I had had an ounce of tree climbing ability, it might have been true! Well, at least I was once ten years old! 😀
