SoCS – As a Matter of Hat

Even after achieving additional fame as a published author, Linda still has time to offer us a prompt for SoCS. Drop in and read her good news then join in on the SoCS fun! CONGRATULATIONS, LINDA!

Today’s prompt is as follows:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “hat.” Use it literally or metaphorically. Have fun!


In our family, there seems to be a trait of which everyone seems to inherit or not. I call it the “Come Live With Me” gene. My siblings always seemed to have someone outside of their family living with them. Now, don’t get me wrong, it is honorable. They always took in kids at odds with their parents, boyfriends/girlfriends, aunts, distant cousins, etc.

I did not inherit this gene. Nor did my mother. We both felt guests had a freshness and an expire date. I will admit to having children come home off and on, but that’s different. That’s immediate family. (My mom would tell you even children coming back home had an expire date.) so, when I saw Linda’s prompt today, I thought of my mother and one of her favorite phrases.

Here’s your hat, what’s your hurry?

Enjoy the photos on your way out. 😏😁😂

  1. I remember that line from “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The only time I took in non-family members was shortly after my divorce and let my son’s 18-year-old friend live with us for a while. It worked out okay, but I wouldn’t do it now. Cool photos!
