The prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “so/sow/sew.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you’d like. Bonus points if you start and end with any of them.
When I read the word "sow" I immediately had to think about my holidays with my grandparents when I was a child. They lived on the countryside in a little town, or big village and of course there were many farmers at that time. One of them once showed me a big sow, I had never seen before one that fat. He explained that the sow was expecting babies !! I was all excited and asked when that would happen, and so he promised me to tell my grandma when the piglets were born.
A few days later I was called and could admire a happy not so big anymore sow laying on one side with 10 or 12 little piglets stuck on her belly ! Were they cute with their little curly tails, I couldn't get enough of watching them. of course I was not allowed to take one out, because the sow could get very angry !
I have always loved pigs and I guess they loved me too. This one was very friendly, it was a little black sow which loved my shoes and followed me all around the place.
Sewing is another story, I once learned to sew in school, but once out of school I have never sewed again. It just wasn't for me.
