SoCS – A Word Please

Linda has given us the most difficult challenge today. I am still not quite sure how I am going to handle this one. If you want to join in, head over to Linda’s and get the scoop on the rules. Here’s the subject for the day.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “your favorite word.” Decide on your favorite word and use it in your post any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Asking me to choose my favorite word is like asking me which one of my children I love the most. And of course the most obvious parental response to that question is “I love you the same but differently.” Children never buy that response.

My head has been spinning since I read the prompt last evening. What word among all the words in the world would I choose? I have friends that choose a word for the year every January. I cannot even do that!

The more I pondered the question, I found myself drifting into memories I had associated with different words. Good memories. Cherished memories. And finally I settled on my word.


Odd word to choose I suppose, but the memory I share with the word is close to my heart. 

I remember sitting on my paternal grandfather’s knee when he taught me to spell Mississippi.

“M I crooked letter crooked letter I crooked letter crooked letter I humpback humpback I.”

And there you have it. Just a small example of the way my brain works on a cloudy Saturday morning. Have a great weekend everyone.
