SoCS – Box

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you every week by Linda Hill. Check out her blog for the rules and the contribution of other bloggers.

This week’s prompt:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “box.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Box. Hmmm. Pandora’s box – or 2020 as we call it.

Music box. I love music boxes. I have a few very special music boxes. I was never a huge fan of Christmas shopping, but oh, how I did love stopping at the San Francisco Music Box pop-up stores. I found they did have an online presence, but the selections were minimal. I have a a Nutcracker music box my son gave me which I will give to his daughter someday.

We saved a lot of shipping boxes ‘just in case’. You never know when you will need an odd shaped box for Christmas presents. Now that Christmas has passed, we can safely break those down and recycle them at the landfill.

Box, boxing, hmmmm kangaroos.

When I was a kid a lot of cartoons involved a kangaroo that could box. They were often depicted with boxing gloves. I remember one cartoon (maybe Tom and Jerry) where a boxing kangaroo was mistaken for an overgrown mouse? That doesn’t seem right. There is probably some reason Kangaroos were shown as boxing kangaroos. I will look that up but not now because this is stream of consciousness.

Speaking of Australia (which I didn’t except I mentioned Kangaroos) I don’t think I follow any bloggers who live in Australia. So, if you know someone I should follow, drop their URL in the comments.

All that remains in 2020 is to take down the decorations and box them back up for next year, but I’m in no hurry. I am going to enjoy Christmas as long as the tree keeps its needles.
