Stream of Consciousness Saturday word prompt is “antic,” any form of the word, or any word with containing “antic.”  This event is hosted by Linda G. Hill.

     Antic would open a world of words, if a writer chooses to use “anti” as a prefix.  One could be anti-guns or be anti-gun control.  One could be anti-meat or anti-veggies.  One, like myself, needs to take an anti-coagulant. 

      That, however, is probably not the way the prompt was intended.  So let’s go back to antic as a complete word.  There are many people who love to pull antics on friends.  Just joking enough to be funny; not to damage or humiliate.  They are just fun tricksters, as in fun anticsters.  Now that might be going too far.

       If you are adverse to playing antics on someone, I guess you would be an antiphobe.  If you loved a study of stunts, tricks, and antics, you must study antic- phobology.  Don’t waste you time looking for that word. I don’t think you will find it! 😀

I should have written this yesterday, April 1, 2023 – April Fools Day


My editor (or browser) will not let me start with a picture, at least I haven’t discovered some new antic, WP is pulling on me. WP Happiness Engineers say they have nothing to do with my problem because it is my browser that is the problem.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
