The mistress of sub- and other conscious writing prompts Linda G Hill has taunted us again:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!
I think I have to cheat today. The reason for it is the last letter I received: An invitation for a breast examination because of an extraordinary cyst:
It was big. Huge. Ginormous
and I already wrote about it on Carol Anne’s “Therapy Bits“!
I got the second prompt from Tweetspeakpoetry and it is:
The Prompt, Based on Barkat’s Poem
Barkat creates irresistible sounds by employing “expert vocabulary,”
or specific words from a field, such as gardening. Write a poem that catalogs a variety of words you may not commonly use—it could be language from ice hockey, chemistry, or raising guinea pigs. Doing a bit
of research first is okay. Play with the words and enjoy the sounds
of them bumping and crashing together.
That’s gonna be fun. I am soon off to the hospital to have my breast examined. I notoriously get cysts. Didn’t really want to go because it seems to be the same all the time. But this one is rather big so after I got told off by my friends I go and am going to write an “ode to my cysts” when waiting there.
Find the words I am using here at Breast Cancer Care (and if you are one of those who skipped any cancer screening test go and make an appointment because you never know…)
I am on my way now… Google says 44 minutes but I do not trust Google (or my sense of following Google’s directions 😁)
Made it in 55 minutes 😁
Signed in ready to verse 🤪
Called in 🙄
12.25 back out 😍
13.25 back home and versing at last 😁
Ode to my cyst
You benign growth of mine
Many of you
Have I “treasured”
Embedded in glandular tissue.
Fibrous I am.
But Mother Nature is kind.
Benign you are
Alas quite big
But benign you are!!!!
Just in case you are interested: yes it was a cyst and apparently the biggest they have ever emptied at 55ml. What a whopper. No wonder it hurt. Usually, I have about half that and they say then it’s big.
So my faith in the NHS is restored because I fully expected to have to come back for more procedures. The powers that be shall bless that doctor and the nurse!!!!
May you have a wonderful Saturday and if you want to celebrate with me the wonderful invention our breasts are (sorry gentlemen… 😁) then feel free to dance like no one’s watching 😘”
And that is really all I want to say (at 14.34) because writing is a bit difficult while laughing maniacally, dancing with a glass of wine in your hand and the dog hopping around you like a crazy little bunny 😉 .
