SoCS: Kohl’s and Prose

I do not have a flyer in hand

I do not have an ad under nose

Only a mailing filled with prose

The Kohl’s twenty percent has been used

And the five dollar bonus too

Toward pretty sweater of teal blue

I threw the fast food coupons away

Into the garbage last week

with the remnants of a smelly leek

Internet has been a special friend

Spending here, spending there

A little bit of a credit card tear

Searched for socks last weekend

Re-ordered cat thing on Thursday

Contemplated crock pots on Friday

Perhaps there will be a flyer next time

When Saturday mail comes late

I’ll sit here and wait…

with the mailing filled with prose

Until I get another one from Kohl’s

Maybe thirty percent this time


Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s 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 or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-tast-.” Find a word that contains “tast” and use it in your post. Enjoy!

    Nicely done, Mary. Koh l’s really wants you to have pretty things, and warm things, and things to put things in. I hope the cat thing arrives soon.

      Kohl’s wants me to do all that and come back with the $10 coupon they gave me for spending money. I have lots of their pretty and warm and shiny things from over the years. They’re kind of like a drug…

    Well done, Mary – especially making sure cat things are purchased too. I’m just like you – I wait for the 30% off at Kohls. It’s a conspiracy though, it seems like they know that about me and sends the ad out at the times when I’ve used them before. I better check the mail today – Black Friday is one of those days!! Happy cyber shopping to you! I hope it’s nice on your side of the state – it’s calm and sunny here today!

      It IS nice here, Shelley. Getting ready to go out and enjoy the sunshine and some local business shopping. Staying away from Kohl’s for now, which is probably a good thing. 😁

    Fun response to the prompt. Now I want a pretty sweater of teal blue. Maybe I will find a coupon. 🙂
