For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday, Linda G. Hill has given us a fabulous prompt. She has asked us to use the word “fab” or to use words beginning with “fab” in our posts.
Now I’m not one for telling fables or for fabricating words. So I’ll give it to you straight. The first fab that came to mind was the original Fab Four — The Beatles.I admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of the Beatles when they first came out in the U.S. in 1964. But within a few years I was hooked. They were, indeed, revolutionary.
I understand there’s an excellent Beatles tribute group that goes by the name of The Fab Four. They’re supposed to be really good, although I’ve never heard or seen them play. They are currently touring the U.S., although nowhere near where I live.
Another thing that comes to mind for the word “fab” is that there’s a laundry detergent with the name Fab. I am not even sure if they still make and sell it, but I found this picture of a bottle of Fab when I Googled the word “fab,” so I’m assuming it’s still a thing.
And finally, somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind, I have a very vague recollection of a British TV comedy (I think it was a comedy, although I never watched it) called “Absolutely Fabulous.” I don’t know what it was about or who starred in it or even when it aired, but I kind of remember that the show had a nickname of “AbFab.”Or maybe I’m mixing up AbFab with the Fab Abs Workout. It’s all so confusing.
