The Hot and Cold of it

Hot. That is the weather today.

Cold. In another month or a few days, it will go away.

Hot. How I like my coffee in the white mug.

Cold. What comes with the chills and a bug.

Hot. The muscular guy and his tight jeans.

Cold. Inhospitable or freezing is what it means.

Hot.Β The flashes, oh the flashes.

Cold. What might feel good on skin rashes.

Hot. The flames of a summer’s campfire.

Cold. A shower to squelch desire.

Hot. Steaming chicken noodle soup.

Cold. Eating ice cream with a frosty group.

Hot. Red lipstick, four-inch heels.

Cold. The engine of those long-gone wheels.

Hot. The sultry water of a winter’s shower.

Cold. Are the hands of too much power.

Hot. The writing of Linda G. Hill.

Cold. Liquid taken with an Excedrin pill.

Hot. What I’ll be with all those bonus points.

Cold. It does no good for achy joints.

Hot. The sun in all of its glory.

Cold. A rambling, too-long story.

Hot. Balmy, tropical, peppery strong

Cold. To end this post without would be wrong.


Stream of Consciousness Saturday is a hot commodity from the mind of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with a prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.

Just go with the flow.

Like a babbling brook, ambling stream or running river. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or makes you paddle for more.

  1. GREAT post. I walked through the ‘hots’ and ‘colds’ with my imagination showing me the pictures I needed to see.

    BUT … I had a problem with one of them. It was a HOT one, and try as I might, I just can’t seem to imagine the picture you’ve painted so ….

    “Hot. The muscular guy and his tight jeans.” …. a photograph of him would be a help to the imagination.

    Great post Mary …. loved it, and it’s rythm is perfection.

    That was fun. Bouncey. Like a step to the right, then the left. I’ve heard hot flashes called power surges. But if someone told me that, when I was having one, I’d be irritated, like, I’ll give you a power surge.

      LOL, Joanna! Yeah, those power surges were not funny when I was deep in the throes of them. I hated it when I would step out of the shower and find myself in a sweaty mess five minutes later. Not fun. Thankfully, they are reduced to the occasional ones and nothing to make me have to step back into the shower.

    Great format today! Love the way you listed, that’s kinda how my brain worked on this one, too, although, our lists don’t match. Everyone has their favorite bits of hot and cold πŸ™‚

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I know, I probably could have gone on and on and on with the hot/cold rhyming. I figured I’d give my readers a break and the rest up for discussion.

    Fantastic, Mary! You know, I never had hot flashes or night sweats, or any of that. I just got a little…..bitchy. Yes, I did…..

    • bikerchick57 says:

      You were lucky not to have experienced the sweats. That would have made it worse; although, Gibbs says that someone named after a bird could never be bitchy. He’s so naive.

    Thanks for a fun run at the prompt. You deserve those bonus points. I don’t get bonus points or hot guy points…oh well. I guess a guy can’t have everything.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      No worries, Dan. I don’t wear lipstick or four-inch heels, so no hot girl points either. Good thing bonus points weren’t based on that.
