SoCS — On the Farm

So Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt this week asks us to find a word (or words) that has a farm animal sound in it and use it in our posts. Okay, that’s a little weird, but here goes.

21EB1C33-C650-4BB8-A781-64705104F899“I came over as soon as I got your tweet,” Monica said. “Is everything okay?”

“Yeah, Monica,” Tom said. “I had the strangest encounter with my new neighbor today.”

“I take it things didn’t go smoothly.”

“Not really,” Tom answered. “The guy was kind of gruff, actually. When he first introduced himself, he seemed normal. But then he started growling and snorting and squeaking in a most peculiar way. I couldn’t figure out what he was saying. It sounded like a bunch of gobbledegook to me.”

“That person sounds like he’s a real quackpot,” Monica said. “So what did you do?”

“Well,” said Tom, “I was getting kinda pissed, so I boinked him right on his nose. Honestly, I didn’t hit him that hard, but he fell to the ground and was out cold. I swear to God, Monica, I thought the guy had croaked.”

“Oh, Tom, that’s awful,” Monica clucked, a look of concern on her face.

“But then he stood up and shook my hand,” Tom said. “And he said it was nice to have met me and invited me over for dinner with him and his wife tomorrow night.”

“Seriously? What did you say?”

“I said ‘baa humbug’ to that, turned around, and walked away from that crazy old hoot.”

    That’s a brilliant response to the prompt – I must admit my heart sinks a little at the quirky ones and I think ‘maybe I’ll sit this one out’ but you’ve really embraced it! Well done!

      We took our kids to a summer camp that was on a working dairy farm.
