Per Linda:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dict.” Find a word that contains “dict” and use it in your post. Have fun!

Dictionaries have always been favorites for me. Encyclopedias, too. All those words that led to other words became an adventure. Sometimes it would lead to stories. I couldn’t help myself.

Other times with those books were not so predictable. Remember being told to go look it up when folks wouldn’t give you a simple answer? One crazy word that seemed a foreign language, led to word after word that made no sense. Each word seemed to contradict the definition of the other.

Still, I would find myself addicted to these tomes of words and knowledge.
