socs-badgeI saw this on Dan Antion’s blog yesterday while waiting on the wife in The Loft (lotsa bored guys in there). Great idea. Here’s my effort. The thing to do is to just write using all/some of the words: bet, bit, but, bat, bot. The idea is from LindaGHill’s blog and the rules are here.


I bet the bat would bite the bot a bit, but the reverse turned out to be true.

Baseball is not my sport. I played for a few years. The last three times I was at bat, I was hit by the ball. This would be why I just pay attention to football (real football, not the footsy stuff that the English and rest of the world follow).


I still like to watch a little soccer. Currently, listening to the wife talk about how bad Arsenal is as they collapse against Swansea. And how bad the ref sucks (he does). And even though the only sport I really follow is football, mostly NFL, I do enjoy watching ย excellent performances regardless of the sport. Tim Howard’s performance in the World Cup this summer was incredible.

I’m looking forward to a day when bots become useful — searching out and delivering relevant and useful advice, purchases, and stuff you’d like — electronic butlers as it were (will be?). And while videos of cats riding on vacuum cleaners are awesome; I’m looking forward to when robots are more functional and useful. Who wouldn’t want a Rosie from The Jetsons?

Games over. NFL games about to start.

This was kinda fun.


  1. I liked the way you used the prompt words. ๐Ÿ˜€ And yes, Rosie would be awesome to have around. Hahaha!
    Thanks so much for participating in SoCS. ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you enjoyed the experience and I hope you’ll be back! ๐Ÿ˜€


    1. Thanks, Linda. I’ve often told myself, “self, you should just write once or twice a week to practice.” These are perfect for that! I’ll be back for entirely selfish reasons (and I enjoyed reading the others too).
