#SoCS – ‘Ask somebody for a prompt’ Prompt @LindaGHill
‘Ask ‘somebody what my prompt is!”
Do you think I have prompt-buddies on speed dial? Is there an assistant that I can turn to?
“Ask somebody what my prompt is, Mr Daniels!” Without please or thank you.
I might pop to a neighbours and ask them what my prompt is – but, the hard of hearing and the hard of understanding won’t be much use to me in this dire emergency.
Hold a seance and ask the dead what my prompt is – mmmmm? Well, that may not work without a room full of gulls called Ibble. And the widgee board could be said to have been fixed. Knock once for ‘my prompt is ‘fire’!
And on it goes.
And I only have ten minutes from when I set the 10-minute timer to do all of this!
I’m on a strict deadline here, folks!
I need a prompt, and I need it now – or yesterday would be even better.
Where is it – I’ll check the post box, under the settee, behind the cooker… no, no, and a big fat NO!
None of those places is where my prompt is. Perhaps I. Oils just use last week’s and say that ‘I’m terribly sorry, but my house was ill and my cat fell down.’
That might work in some other,, less stringent, Universe – but not this one – Oh, no.
I shall just have to wing it and work on the basis that if I choose any old prompt there is a 1 in 50,000,009 chance of it being the one – it’s probably a better chance than that, but if you put 50,000,009 on a calculator and turn it upside down you will find the word ‘oooooo’ – now isn’t that interesting? Rhetorical! Question!
Oh, well, I shall have to admit the feet (de feet) and just await a proper prompt so that I can write a proper stream* of Consciousness Saturday piece.
*Is where my 10-minutes ended.
