Linda has given us “yawn ” as our Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday and asks us to write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “yawn.” Enjoy!
Are you tired? Yawning away as if trying to catch some energy from mid-air to keep you going.
Of course you’re too polite to say so, but do I bore you? I know I switch off from things that don’t interest me, and stifling a yawn can only be disguised once or twice. Perhaps that was why ladies of yesteryear were given fans to hide behind.
Lack of oxygen is it? That’s the scientific reasoning, that a yawn is the opening of the airways, so maybe they are energy catchers after all.
Yawns are tiring, so it’s all inter-related and must be time for bed.
