Today’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is the word ICK
The SoCS challenge means writing with no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
I laughed because I immediately thought of Icky Vicky. My cousin and his wife had a daughter, and she was playing with my brother. We have no idea what they got into, but they were filthy. Their hands were disgusting and nearly a box of baby wipes was used to clean the sticky, icky stuff caked on their hands. In frustration her mom cried:
“How did you get so icky, Vicky?”
And then laughed and said that was kinda funny, because it rhymed.
That was her nick-name as a toddler. Of course, as she got older, we weren’t allowed to call her that…but whenever I hear or see this word, that’s immediately what I think of.
