SoCS — Rock It To Me

I was listening to Elton John’s “Crocodile Rock” on my iPhone the other day when my doorbell proceeded to ring. I opened the door to see my friend Brock standing there wearing a frock. He was very excited to tell me that he had just procured impossible to get tickets for a live concert by my favorite rock ‘n roll group, Atrocious, on Saturday night.

I told him that was a crock, as the concert had been sold out for months and that the price of tickets from brokers had skyrocketed. But he proclaimed that he had a process that enabled him to get the tickets at a reasonable price even for those like us who had procrastinated.

“The only catch,” he said as he handed me a brochure for a gaming laptop with a blazingly fast microprocessor, “is that I want you to reciprocate by using your connections at the microchip company you work at to get me a big discount. Can you do that?”

“Of course I can,” I answered. “Being there and doing things for one another is the bedrock of our friendship, Brock.”


This little bit of silliness was written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. If you haven’t already figured it out by now, Linda has asked us to find a word (or words) with “roc” in it (or them) or use it as a word all by itself.

    Why was he wearing a frock?
    Great use of “roc”.

    I am always impressed by the sheer number of words you find to go with the SoCS prompt.
