Linda G. Hill is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Linda says:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “abash/a bash/bash.” Use “abash,” or “bash” as a noun or a verb. Bonus points if you manage all three. Have fun!
Here we go with SoC. Monster Mash, it was a graveyard smash, is there a bash in the monster mash? Why yes, isn’t a monster mash a bash? It did catch on in a flash. Remembering how much us kids loved this song when it came on the radio.
Gallagher, remember him when he bashed the watermelon with the sledgehammer or whatever it was? It was so daring back in those days. People would pay good money to get splashed with the melon when he bashed it. I think he added other fruits and vegetables to his show at some point.
Bashful, trying to think of a bashful celebrity. It kind of goes against acting to be bashful as actors want to be seen. They can play roles of being bashful. One who comes to mind is Jim Nabors, as Gomer Pyle. He was such a sweet character and was always so humble.
Another bashful character I remember was Flower, the skunk, in Bambi. We saw the movie at the theater, but we also had the album, which we probably about wore the grooves off of. I still remember the line, “He can call me Flower if he wants to.” and that shy little sound he made. Such a priceless thing for a small child to hear, especially one who was on the shy side herself in many cases.
OK that’s all I got! Until next time.
