SoCS — To my Teenaged self…

This post is part of Linda G Hill’s “Stream of Consciousness Saturday”

Well, today, Linda left the SoCS completely open to interpretation. When I was young, I thought I wanted to be some sort  of writer one day. Of course, our plans don’t always work out  like we think. So for SoCS today, I have a gift for my younger self. I could never have guessed that I would have the ability to “publish” anything on a blog. Blogs didn’t exist back then. Hmmm. Well, actually, the internet didn’t really exist ! So, here you go, 15-year-old Jetgirl — you’re famous! 🙂

Now, I really have no idea how this thing came to my attention, but while I was digging through a few boxes in my ongoing attempt to re-organize my life, I came across an odd little alliteration that I wrote when I was quite young, maybe 15 or so? I sort of remember doing this. I was bored, hanging out  at my dad’s office, waiting for my mom to be done with her work so we could go somewhere…probably shopping! Anyway, I found a pad of scratch paper and scribbled this down. It‘s totally SoC ! So here is my SoC from nineteen-eighty-something:





Temperamental Tubas Tend To Tune Terrible Tympanis To a “T“, and Ten Thousand Trumpets Tritely Tell Them That The Treble Trouble isn’t Tuning — Tubas Take Tremendous Time on Top Tympani Tunes, so The Trumpets’ Temper is Turning Torrid ! 


Et vous, chers lecteurs ? Have you ever wished you could give something to your younger self?

    I love it. Both the focus on detail given to every “t” and the alliteration of your younger self. Would I be right in assuming that your younger self spent some time in a band setting?

    As a former player of tubas, I am not sure I like the tone taken in addressing them, but I have to say I enjoyed the whole enough to overlook the tone. 🙂

      Yes, I was one of those annoying flute players 🙂 In fact, I have a great respect for Tubists…when I was in college band they were sort of like superheros, and we had the “Tuba Dance” at every football game! They were more popular than the football team in fact 😉

        It is actually funny. When I started playing the tuba, I was told that the only thing in the band that took more wind than a tuba was…. a flute.

        I didn’t go to a big school. In fact, we didn’t have a football team. I was a music (voice) major but I absolutely love brass. They needed a tuba player, and I was known for having a lot of wind. Looking at the length of my comment, I guess some things don’t change.

    Bravo pour tes débuts précoces en écriture quant à moi il n’y avait rien d’extérieur.
    Je notais les choses dans les pages de ma mémoire…

    I love it! There is nothing like a bit of boredom to get the creative juices flowing.

    As far as what I’d tell my teenage self: don’t base your opinion of yourself on what others think of you.



So, what do you think? - Qu'en pensez-vous ?
