This week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill invites us to “use the phrase ‘in other words’ at least once in your post.”
I typically use that phrase when I feel that I haven’t explained something adequately. Or when I can tell that the person I’m talking with doesn’t quite understand what I’ve just said. So I’ll try to say it in a different way, starting out with “In other words….”
But as I was writing my response to Linda’s prompt, I unconsciously found myself humming the 1964 Frank Sinatra song (written by Bart Howard), “Fly Me To The Moon.”
At first I wasn’t sure why that song popped into my head, but then I started thinking about the lyrics and realized that the phrase “in other words” is sung over and over again throughout the song.
That’s when I decided, mid-stream of consciousness, so to speak, to post a video of Frank Sinatra’s rendition of “Fly Me To The Moon.”
