"These prunes are the best-tasting food I've eaten all day. Yum." Does a stray thought ever surprise you like this one did for me?

      I’m sure that happens with/to me, but I don’t understand how the statement about prunes that you used as an example is surprising.  It seems so “what’s the big deal” to me.

    I like your answer better than my example.

    Yeah, I thought some similar things about using how good the prunes tasted as my example.  Perhaps the prunes came to mind because I've loved prunes since a very young child and, still as a child, soon heard the world so often equating adults liking prunes, not children. Maybe just that thought would have been a better example.
    And perhaps this is all just the result of very long work-and-various-activities days and not sleeping well for days, ha. (Or make that "nights" not sleeping well, ha.

    You’re not apologizing for your post, are you? (LOL.)

    Yikes.  :)

    I don't think so, though, ha.

    A good friend of my Uncle Jake
    Put prunes in the currant cake
    And the only advice that he could make
    Was "Skip to the loo, my darling"

    That was funny!

    Just the beginning:

    "It's Woody Allen -- did I mention that?"
    'We got it! We got it!"

    That had me laughing. :)

    I've never regularly watched this show but I think I'd do well to watch. Anytime I've seen clips, I laugh out loud. I saw one full episode - a friend told me it is a famous one, I guess -  some of  the cast were stuck in a public parking garage for the entire episode. I thought the episode was very funny.

    Yes. Surprising stray thoughts are one of my specialties.

    That doesn't surprise me - - we often  seem to be together on that same Stray Thought Page.  ;)

    I'd rather have figs, fresh off the tree.

    I don't think I've eaten very many figs. I do like Fig Newtons, though. :)

    I tried them because Jesus ate them, for real.  I liked them fresh off the tree.

    I think I've eaten some of them before and I liked them. I may look for them the next time I'm at the store. (I don't know it there are actual real fig trees around me, ha). I want to eat a bit more healthier and if they're good enough for Jesus, they're good enough for me, ha.

    I've been eating more prunes lately.

    They have a very familiar feeling when you pick them up, like a peach without the fuzz.  This post was edited by Honey Dew at June 2, 2022 4:55 AM MDT
