#SoCS – Giddiness – #AtoZChallenge


Give me a glass of wine, and I’ll show you one light-headed lady.

I admit it – I cheated. I said I was going to write a post on whatever word showed up on the right-hand page, second from the bottom in my thesaurus, no matter what, but the word I found today was “genocide.” I’m not going to apologize for turning the page. So what did I get instead? “Giddiness.” Couldn’t be more opposite.

Anyway, welcome to the Stream of Consciousness version of the A to Z Challenge, where nothing is deleted and nothing is planned. Also, nothing but typos are edited. Yeah, yeah, sometimes I go back and fix the punctuation. But that’s mostly for your sake. If I didn’t, you might not be able to figure out what I’m trying to say. …or maybe you can’t anyway…

It’s been a less-than-giddy-inspiring day today. My darling son is up to his antics, whining over a game he’s been playing all day. Oh, he’s as good as gold for ten minutes if I threaten to take it away. But every time I walk away, he’s at it again. He’s sitting beside me now, leaning on me, “singing” in his own way – he’s Deaf, so it’s more like a one-note elongated scream – knowing there’s nothing I’m going to do about it because I’m typing. If I don’t do it (post this) now, it’s going to be so late that I won’t feel like doing it. All freakin’ day it’s been like this.

So after he goes to bed, I think I may open a bottle of wine and get… let’s look in the thesaurus… (I’ll take all the “-ness”es off the words, since the original has it.) Dizzy, faint, light-headed, nauseous, vertigo, wobbly, or woozy. I see a few there I definitely don’t want to become. Wobbly sounds good. I remember when I was younger someone calling beer “wobbly-pop” on a regular basis. It fits.

Okay, the kid’s getting overwhelming again. Wish me luck. And wine.

  1. Have some ‘wobbly wine’ Linda! I hope it helps! 🍷🍷🍷🍷


  2. Enough bad news in the world. Thank you for turning the page.


  3. Wobble-pop πŸ˜€ that’s awesome. It’s kinda cool being in your mind!


  4. wine is my muse. Glad you went with giddiness. πŸ™‚


  5. Good luck with the whine… hope the wine helped!!!


  6. Wobble, wine and giddiness, so much better than the other G word! πŸ™‚


  7. How I admire you, kiddo!! Hope you were able to enjoy a few hours of quiet with your vino and relax. I love the word “giddy” though, it feels so young and silly and just being a kid again. I cheated today too with the F word…no no, I mean the word for A to Z challenge…I chose a word rather than picked it from the dictionary since I was at a coffee shop and well…um, ’cause I could! [chuckles]


  8. Wine, not whine, and chocolate are good. πŸ™‚


  9. πŸ™‚ Can he feel the vibrations of music? If so, let the ‘vibrations of music rock him to sleep” and pull out the wine – – LOL – I DO admire you – I would be driving myself bat-s**t crazy buying woofers/tweaters/sound systems to share, through vibrational waves, the music I love (in blatant mom brainwashing activities, of course – – ) but, though I haven’t walked your path, the oldest son, I could lay in cradle, rock and sing from a distance, and it was okey-dokey – the youngest? Had to walk up and down the hall with him locked in against my chest/throat area too – no double-blind study done, but me thinks, one more attuned to the waves the ears caught and the other attuned more to the waves their body intercepted – – πŸ™‚ But always, after Giddy days full of to-do’s and such, there is always, “Mom – – needs – -shoring-up-something – – – NOW!” – πŸ™‚ Kudos to you for finding your joys and free time where ya can!


    • He can feel the music, but I have another challenge… My autistic son can rarely stand loud noise that’s not of his own making. πŸ˜› I really can’t win most of the time.
      Thanks very much, my dear. πŸ˜€


  10. Thanks for turning the page! Wondering if you ever sing along with your son. That used to help me with my kids whining. I’d whine along with them and turn it into a song. That was a long time ago. I almost miss whining out loud.
