SoCS: July 10th 2021

prompt: hope

This morn amid remnants of a tropical storm I was able to access my blog.

To my surprise I found sitting atop my picture an icon I’d used elsewhere in

social media.

All I could hope for was to find an answer to undo this most recent tech

issue.

Fortunately there is a rainbow following the rain (or hopeful will be) and

I can manage to ascertain the cause (or person) responsible for this prank.

First glance of the pic led me to believe this animal species could possibly be the

Vietnamese Orangutan ‘Pongo hooijeri’, an endangered species.

At second glance I took note of the creature’s facial features and oh the long nose

of the rather ugly animal would define it as an ant eater.

An anteater specializes in eating insects.

Although this one is quite gigantic I could’ve used a mini-one earlier this morn.

My urge to pee was greater than my urge to stop the black carpenter ant

(a nervous wreck) made himself at home touring the vanity walking on

numerous personal items.

Void of a long-handled weapon, helpless, I had no choice other than watch

the segmented bugger.

Adamant that ant would soon meet his maker, upon arising after washing my

hands I was on a mission to stop him dead in his tracks.

Success, one less carpenter ant!

Today’s prompt: famous quote

“Practice what you preach” – first thought came to mind.

I accessed the internet to find out to whom I should accredit this quote.


To my surprise it was ‘Jesus’ who spoke those words in his teachings about legalism.

Matthew 23:2-3

I’ve been a firm believer my entire life of treating others in the same manner you

wish them to treat you.

To my dismay this thinking doesn’t hold true as many talk the talk only don’t walk

the walk.

No, individuals are first to give instructions to someone on how to behave only

they fail to follow their own words.

This makes them hypocrites and sadly our world is chaulk full of those types.
