The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Aug. 25/18

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “notice.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!

We like people to notice us, or give our employers notice when we wish to leave our jobs.
Funny though how we notice some things straight away and others don’t register for weeks, if not months. This happened with my late BIL shaving off his beard (a full Capt Birdseye but black) and I didn’t notice at all!
Other things are road signs or garden ornaments……….. we have a Big Ears and PC Plod from Noddy waving at us from the wall in one of the little villages, yet it was several weeks before we noticed them.
Hubby finally noticed the gritter box on one of the sharp corners on the main road last week. This was something that I’d already noticed months ago and thought nothing of.

Then of course there is the poor henpecked husband whose wife has her hair done and all the preening in front of him in the world doesn’t register with him at all.
I prefer to keep my hair long these days, but in the past I was a hairdresser’s nightmare or godsend when I’d fancy a change and tell her to do what she wanted. I’d go in with shoulder length hair and come out with a crew cut, or a shaggy perm though the one occasion I went for a colour rinse, even I couldn’t see a change!
I do remember the ex-partner saying to me one morning
‘WTF have you done to your hair?’
as my foster girl of the time was a hairdresser and I’d let her cut it……… to an inch and a half all over. He sure as hell noticed, but I don’t think he liked it!
Congratulations to Pamela for winning the new badge contest.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I’m at my hair dressers today. Thinking an inch all around would be a nice change. Wonder who would notice 😂

    So funny. I think of myself as an observant person but there’s been a time or two (or more) when hubby’s said “didn’t you notice I got my hair cut??” Umm, nope. I didn’t. It’s either short or shorter, pretty much. 😆
