SoCS – The Nerve

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 “nerve.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

My parents had a habit of saying “you are getting on my last nerve” which roughly translated meant ‘this is your last warning. Shut your mouth, clear the decks, and scram while there’s still time‘. My parents’ bark was worse than their bite, but no way we were prepared to challenge them. I mean we were brave, but not that brave.

I started thinking about Saturday morning cartoons. I kept thinking there was a cartoon character that said “oh the noive” but if there was I was unsuccessful in pulling it from my mental archives. All I could come up with was the Cowardly Lion from “The Wizard of Oz”. Maybe I mixed them up. Help a fellow blogger out. If there was a cartoon character that said something close to that, drop it in the comments. Elmer Fudd? Bugs Bunny? Snagglepuss?

Now I can’t get this song out of my head. Oh, the nerve of it all!
