Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “golly gee.” Use “golly gee” or another interjection that displays the same sentiment in your post. Enjoy!
Apparently my first word a a child was not Mamma or Dadda, but golly.
This was because someone had a toy golliwog and I took a shine to it, or maybe it was mine. I was very young so can’t remember!
It was also very fashionable at the time to collect the paper gollies from the jars of jam and when you had ten I think you sent off for an enamel pin from a choice of designs. I only ever had one.
I had a friend who was very excitable at times and golly, gee, or gosh were her words of delight or surprise when most others would come out with Wow, or Blimey!
In hindsight, it was quite charming. I wonder whatever happened to her? She was a little older than me but we lost touch in the 1960s.
