Stream of Consciousness Saturday – 21 September 2019 – Rap/Wrap

These are the basic rules of posting on Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

1. Your post must be a stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

Today’s prompt from Linda requires us to use either rap, wrap or both.

The meaning of rap –  sharp blow; a type of music, to strike sharply. What a lovely word – so onomatopoeic.

Rap is a form of entertainment that many of the older generation don’t get.  But I actually love it.  It’s vibrant and fun and works a treat when you’re trying to teach young children.   When I was teaching I enjoyed the THRASS rap we used to Teach Handwriting, Reading and Spelling Skills.  I’d bring rap into many other areas of my teaching too especially if I noticed that the children were becoming distracted.   It really worked to bring them to attention and got them laughing too.  Wouldn’t you if your school ma’am started to rap in the middle of a lesson?  In the bad old days, the only rap from the teacher would be one on the knuckles!

Put w in front of it and you get Wrap!   Now that conjures up thoughts of gifts in beautifully decorated wrappings.


OR Delicious food in an easy to eat Wrap.  It’s a brief word for a healthy snack wrapped up in a soft flatbread.   I seldom make them at home but Hubby loves to order them when we’re on the road and we need to stop for something quick and healthy for lunch.   His favourite – and mine if I succumb to eating a carb – is smoked chicken with sweet chilli sauce and don’t forget the avo!
