SoCS — Bowl Me Over

For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill, we’ve been given the word “bowl” and instructed to use it as a noun or a verb or any way we’d like.

Alrighty then. As this is a stream of consciousness post, I came up with a bunch is random statements using the word bowl. Some of these statements are true and factual, others are purely made up ones that popped into my head. Would you like to guess which are true and which are not? Here goes.

In high school I took a pottery class and crafted a bunch of ceramic bowls

When I was a kid, my mother used to put a bowl on my head to give me a haircut. She called it a “bowl cut.”

Every morning I have a big bowl of cold cereal for breakfast.

On Wednesday nights I grab my bowling ball, my bowling shoes, and head to the bowling alley to bowl a few games with my buddies on the bowling team. One time I bowled a 300 game and everyone in the place was totally bowled over.

I’ve always wanted to go to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. That would be really cool. But I’ve never been. Have you?

We always have a bowl of fresh water out for our dog to drink when she’s thirsty.

My office has glass walls and when I am in it I feel as if I’m sitting in a fish bowl.

I love watching college bowl football games, but when it comes to the Super Bowl, I usually enjoy the commercials and the half-time show more than the game itself.

Do you remember the quiz show, College Bowl, back when Allan Ludden, Betty White’s husband was the host?

I understand that College Bowl is back on the air, now hosted by Peyton Manning.

With Halloween approaching I’m looking for a large plastic bowl that I can dump all of the fun-sized candy bars into. Then I’ll take the bowl filled with candy to the end of my driveway and the trick-or-treaters can take their own candy bars from the bowl and not have to come to my door and knock or ring the bell, which drives my dog crazy.

My son, when he was in college, survived mostly on bowls of Ramen noodles.

    I can’t believe you really want to go to a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. What a freaking madhouse!

    I’ve also made pottery: took ceramics as a subject at college and still have some of the things I made around 30 years ago. I like the bowls you have pictured here btw… very pretty. 🙂 Amanda

    The bowl of cold cereal for breakfast, and the bowl of fresh water for your dog are both true.

    I know you eat cerial every morning, so that one is true!
    I’m assuming that you do leave fresh water out for the dog, so that one is true, tooo!
    I think most college students survive on noodles!

    One of my sons bought a box (two layers of twelve/24 cups) of ramen soup when he headed off to the nearby college town. But he says he doesn’t know how anyone gets through college without the dollar menu (which doesn’t exist any more) at McDonald’s. The box sat, the whole time, on top of his refrigerator. He threw it away when he moved out of his apartment. It’s a little funny in that he does like these noodles. Maybe taking the time to add water was too much?

    Ever see a college football team that played a bowl game?
