The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 13/19

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “instructions.” Write instructions for anything you know how to do. As detailed or as rambling as you’d like. Enjoy!

Oh, the wonderful instructions that have been translated from English into multiple languages and then translated back again, sometimes not meaning the same thing at all!

From recipes to cleaning, something always goes awry, so I’m choosing something really straight forward:

Chose the area in which you wish to work.
Remove all obstacles from the surface.
Select your chosen application container.

A: If spray, push button and spray said cleared surface.
Wipe quickly with a clean dry cloth to remove streaks.

B: If solid, dip cloth in substance and smear on said cleared surface.
Rub vigorously until shiny.

Replace obstacles on shiny surface.

Done, and dusted (and p0lished).

As an aside, and something that was actually included in the instructions for collapsing a stroller:
‘First remove the child’.

 

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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
