SoCS – Ode

Continued thanks to Linda Hill who sponsors this lovely stream of consciousness every week. Every Friday she provides a new word to spark our minds into action.

Check out Linda’s blog if you want to join in – check out the rules and the contribution of other bloggers. This week, the prompt is:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ode.” Find a one- or two-syllable word that rhymes with “ode,” or use the word “ode.” Have fun!

I come from a long line of smart alecks. I was on the phone with a friend when Linda’s post popped up. I chuckled about the first thing that popped in my head – being silly – but now I cannot get it out of my head, so I am going with it.

For a toad

In the road
