When I was young and I saw Boxing Day on my calendar I thought that it was about:

I’m not into sports, except maybe swimming. But I knew that baseball was spring and football was fall. Maybe the day after Christmas was like the championship?

Later I learned that it was a day to box up donations for the poor or even another gift-giving day. That sounds nice. I wish we did that here in the states.

Anyone else look over to an area in your house where there is a stack of boxes? Yeah, living in the country means that we have a lot of UPS deliveries. But now that we have outlawed plastic bags at the stores, we are getting more boxes. We can’t even break them down fast enough. And now I have several gifts that I need to send, yet there isn’t a box the right size.

Since this is a stream, I don’t want to box myself into a certain dialogue. Don’t box me in. Don’t put me in a box.


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “box.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
