Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “collar.” Use it as a verb, a noun, or metaphorically. Bonus points for using it in all three ways! Enjoy!
The first thing that came to mind was a joke, which I shall happily share, though I might not get the punch line exactly right.
Old Ma Perkins was lonely and bought herself two budgerigars for company, thinking they were both female.
When she came down one morning and found one mating with the other, she was embarrassed and decided to put a piece of cotton round the male’s neck so that she could distinguish the two.
A week later the vicar came for tea, and the male bird eyed him up through the cage.
dog clerical collar, it said
‘I see she caught you at it too.’
Update: here n the UK we call a clerical collar a dog collar. Apologies for confusion.
No good at punchlines!!!
