Up with This, Down with That

Protesting is a way of objecting, or disapproving of something and when Vinnie Barbarino got mad, he would say, “Up your nose with a rubber hose.”  Cain made the first protest thinking that people would try to kill him to avenge the murder he committed, so God marked him to keep others from harming him.  The Protestants were the first organized protesters that I know of and Martin Luther objected to the corrupt practice of the church selling indulgences and he defiantly nailed a copy of his 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church.  I have never been in a protest, but if I found out that somebody was organizing one to protest Donald Trump, I think I would join in.

The most important thing to remember when you are playing golf is to keep your head down, because if you look up too early, the only thing that you will see if a bad shot.  There are times when you need to keep your head up, especially when life is trying to bring you down.  I am not sure where I am headed when my life is over and I figure that I could go up or down, either taking that stairway to heaven, or that highway to hell.  I felt like I was coming down with something last night, but when I got up this morning, I was much better.  It looks like another day of writing for me and I can get down with that.

Written for Linda G. Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday where this week the prompt is “up/down” and we are asked to try and use one of these words in the first sentence and bonus points will be awarded if we can get the other word in the last sentence.

    1. I could see that. When I was young and hippies were a thing, I used to draw these pictures of Cousin Itt looking characters holding protest signs, but my picture didn’t come out so well today. Trump said that the cops should beat the fuck out of all the protestors.
