Too Many M’s – SoCS

Linda, Linda, Linda. You have definitely thrown down the gauntlet this week. We never know what challenge she is going to send out way. Why not check out her post and join in on the fun?

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mat/met/mitt/mot/mutt.” Choose one or use them all, any way you’d like in your post. Have fun!

It is rare for me to pull out the dictionary for a three letter word, but alas, Linda got me this week. Mot is short for bon mot – taken from the French – it means a witty remark. Who says blogging is not educational?

I once took a class to learn how to mat my own photos. It gets very expensive to enter an art showing requiring framed works if you must pay someone to do that work. Now I own my own mat cutter but have not framed anything since I retired.

Thursday my friend and I met for a mid-morning breakfast. We ate in a small cafe tucked into a niche on a narrow side street. It was a lovely extended breakfast. What did I have to eat, you ask? I enjoyed a Chai latte and a slice of a ham and cheese frittata. It was delicious but the best part was catching up with my friend.

Did you know you can use vaseline to condition a baseball mitt? Of course, you must still work that glove before it responds well.

Lastly, I wonder if any of my readers are old enough to remember the “Mutt and Jeff” comic strip written by cartoonist Bud Fisher. Did you know comic strips were first frowned upon because the reader had to read horizontally rather than vertically? Comics were traditionally only one panel.

Whew! That further taxed my already taxed brain this morning!
