The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS May 2/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “directions.” Find a household cleaner/bottle of shampoo/something in the freezer/anything you can find with instructions on it, then copy down a single direction (just one) on how to use/cook/etc. your chosen thing, and make it the first line or word of your post. Then keep writing whatever comes out. Have fun!

‘Drain and rinse thoroughly’.
Yeah right, like HOW???
Everything had stuck together and was one large multi-coloured blob. Instructions never translated well and someone had probably got their narratives mixed up.
It could have been worse. It could have ended up on someone’s plate, like the MIL.
Oh yeah, That would’ve been good.
Never a kind word for anyone, let alone her own offspring,  to suddenly dig in and find a lump of goo that should have been dinner, well, her language would have made the front page of the local Tatler.
She prodded it with a fork fully expecting it to squeal in protest. The prongs disappeared and did not want to retract.
Nothing for it then, she shoved it into a large sieve and turned the cold tap on.
The damn stuff blocked all the holes and the water sloshed over the top.
It went in the bin and she decided on a casserole rather than stew and dumplings made from…………….that.

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.
