#SoCS — Rib Variety Pack


Linda G. Hill is the host of Stream of Consciousness Saturday.  Linda says:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rib.” Use it as a word, or find a word with “rib”in it. As always, use any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Ribbit jumps out of my consciousness first then sits in the windowsill while the file-searcher gets busy.

Ribs. I heard of one of the juveniles in town got  shot this week. The bullet was aimed at his heart but one of his ribs deflected it. Our ribs protect all of the important organs. You can live without a leg or an arm but try living without any of those things within the bone cage.

OK I just got a visual of a heart singing like a bird inside of the ribcage.

I think I remember a cartoon once where a skeleton was playing his ribs like a xylophone.

Have you ever had cracked ribs? I fell once on a motorcycle and hit the pavement hard. The x-ray said cracked ribs. It was painful to breathe for at least a week or two if memory serves correctly. I was sent to the doctor for aftercare and he prescribed me a bottle of vicodin, with two refills. After taking 5 doses as prescribed, I remember my whole body ached as time for the next dose approached. I knew right then how addicting vicodin was. I tossed the rest and lived with the pain.

OK that completes my stream of consciousness repertoire for this Saturday.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    Was this the cartoon with the skeleton playing the ribs?

    Ub Iwerks did a lot of cartoons that featured skeletons.

      Um, John, I’m not that old. This is from 1937! Probably. Thanks for finding it. They don’t make cartoons like this anymore.
