When I was worried about the prompt I posted for today, I think I was really only referring to myself and how it hasn’t inspired me to write anything. I’ve honestly had a full, well actually more than 24 hours to think about it. I’ve tried not to because we aren’t supposed to plan our posts, but I’ve had a hard time getting it out of my head.
The one thing it did make me think of was a lyric to a song and I have been singing the song in my head all night (that’s what it felt like anyway).
If you follow my blog, I posted a song by Pentatonix two weeks ago and I’m not trying to use SoCS to post music lyrics (I’ll save that for tomorrow), but this was just too perfect to not link to it. They did a remake of a song called Misbehavin’ and this is the lyric playing in my head while I write this: “And I’ve had two too many, but I’m just doing this to pass the time.” UPDATE: Okay, so this is what I get for not really doing any research for my posts. Pentatonix actually wrote this song, so it isn’t a cover. Thanks to Lisa in the comments for pointing out my pretty terrible mistake!
Listening to the song made me think of my daughter though – even though the song is most definitely about relationships. I received a phone call last night from a very homesick Adelle and we had a good chat and a cry together. I can handle her being too far away when I know she’s happy and she is loving school and her chosen career path, but when she is hurting, all I want is to call the airlines and fly her home with whatever money I can scrounge up.
To be honest, when she is two miles away and I don’t see her for days or even weeks, I miss her. The miles don’t necessarily matter, they just make it easier or harder to get to where your heart is.
My advice, such that it was, was to be fearless and fierce. Haha, I have no idea why that particular word came into my head, except that there are only a few words I think of when I am describing my daughter and two of them are tenacious and fierce. Does everyone think there child is a badass, or is that just me?
Anyway, I know this post is all over the place, but at least I managed to put in the few phrases that got stuck in my head when I came up with the prompt.
I have a busy day ahead of me, but I’m planning to read everyone’s post at some point this weekend.
Happy Saturday everyone!
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is normally hosted by Linda G Hill on her blog, but I stepped in to help out while she was gone this week. The prompt for today was “to/too/two.”
