This is my seventh entry for Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Hope y’all enjoy my take on this challenge. Here’s a link to Linda’s blog https://lindaghill.com/2019/09/20/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-sept-21-19/

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “wrap/rap.” Use one, use both (for bonus points), use ’em any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Here are the rules:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry, pictures – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.

4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours.  Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.

6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!

7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.

8. Have fun!

Today at work I found some candy wrappers in my fitting rooms and I was not amused. Before I wrapped up my shift today I got to check out a couple of customers.

Some of my favorite rappers are Eminem, Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, 50 Cent, Ludacris, LL Cool J, Sean Coombs, DMX, Jeezy, Big Boi, and Nicki Minaj.  Some of my favorite rap songs are In Da Club, Lose Yourself, California Love, Drop It Like it’s hot, and Hypnotize.

“Rap was started by black people and, thus, is at the foundation of black culture. So people cannot always wrap their minds around someone like me being inspired by it. But if you listen to the things we’re saying, they’re authentically us.”

“I especially have very fond memories associated with the 10th day of Dassera. My friends and I would meet up and build this huge 7-feet-tall Ravan, which we’d burn at around sunset in our colony. And this was no ordinary Ravan. We’d actually sit and hand-mix the contents of glue and glitter with the dough and wrap it around newspaper for the base.”
