So Far Away — #SoCS

Stream of Consciousness Saturday -- So Far Away #SoCS

So far away. Isn't that a song? Far away, but you're so, far away . . . by Carol, oh, shoot. Dammit. Refusing to look it up. From the album Tapestry. Shitshitshit. Grrrr, damn memory. It's Stream of Consciousness time and today's prompt, via Linda Hill is: so far. Now that I've got that fragment…

“In other words” is a phrase that, now that I think about it, drives me semi-nutty. Because, “in other words” you couldn't figure out how to say what the hell it was you wanted to say the first time. If you do that, just say “let me put it another way.” Oh. Crap. I just…

Have You Ever Discounted Someone Not Wearing a Tie?

Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man. - ZZ Top Have you ever discounted or ignored great advice because the person giving it was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt? Or a bathrobe? Or jeans and t-shirt with a dinosaur trying to do pushups (one of the favorite shirts I own). In certain…
