My vreugdes en frustrasies


#SoCS Get your hands off that posterior post-haste

The post about the posterior seemed a good choice for this week’s SoCS. Why? Because Linda says : Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “post.” Use it as a word, or find a word that uses it as a prefix. Have fun!

We were at the nursery earlier this afternoon to buy edible leafy plants which my husband refers to as goat fodder, but which my daughter and I deem to be an essential part of our summer salads-only diet. Yes! summer is on its way, long overdue as far as I am concerned but as welcome as ever. Post winter and post all the rich, thick and creamy soups, broths, stews, curries and puddings, we really need sustenance of a less caloric nature to get the posteriors back into shape.

While my daughter and I were busy selecting strong and healthy seedlings among the parsley, sweet basil, garlic chives, rocket, mint and lettuce beds, my husband wandered away. A little while later I saw him sniffing around a yesterday-today-and-tomorrow shrub. Then I watched him gently laying down his crutches and reaching out to fondle a magnificent derrière.

The nursery staff have stuffed a few old denims with potting soil in which they displayed their ferns and trailing vines – a really neat marketing trick much appreciated by their male customers. My daughter caught his cheeky smile on her cell phone camera; he was well aware of the fact that we were watching his antics and enjoyed our raised eyebrow expressions.

Post-it: Did you really expect me to react to that posterior caress in any other way?

Postscript: I’m posting this on social media.

Post postscript: I know your friends will love this. So will your enemies 😎
