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!

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.
