This really doesn’t answer the questions above but it was fun to write anyways!
The badger took his coat and hat and set off for the tree
the owl said, “There’s bugs in there”, so badger went to see
He really wanted to go down into his tunnel home
But maybe there’d be more to find like mole’s or mouse’s tomb
He found the tree and had to say it looked right like a store
The holes were made and badger thought, “No holes I have to bore”.
he checked the tree and saw there was a squirrel near the end
Who put a kettle on the stove for tea with his new friend.
The kettle rang and whistled soon the water getting hot
badger thought his friend looked good, but’d be better in a pot
The little friend was sensing fear and thought the time to leave
Then badger had a great idea, a trick right up his sleeve
He’d ask his friend to visit him in his own tunnelly home
The friend would have no way to know that they would be alone
They left the tree and walked side by side until they found the spot
Badger told his friend that down in earth its not so hot
They went down to the badger’s den to sit and have some tea
But badger had himself a snack and was happy as can be.

Linda gives us the prompt each week. Join in here: https://lindaghill.com/2022/12/02/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-dec-3-2022/
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “twin/tween.” Use, “twin” or “tween” any way you’d like. Bonus points if you use both. Enjoy!
My sister and I look alike I guess. She is almost three years older than I am. She was almost a twin to my mother when comparing their photos from when my mother was young. Once, when I was in my early twenties, I had stopped by her condo and gone to get a drink. There was a picture on the refrigerator and I wondered why there was a picture of me and John, her husband at the time, on the refrigerator. Yes, you guessed it, it was her and John, but I swear I thought it was me! As we have aged I tend to look like a “twin” of how she looked at that age. One thing is true though, we sound very much alike on the phone. We are however not alike in any other ways that I can think of.
Now there’s my daughter. We have been told we look like sisters and I wouldn’t say twins there either. Some of my older pictures when put next to hers look like we could have been twins. Funny thing is we sound alike, laugh alike, and have many of the same mannerisms, even now that we haven’t lived in the same house for at least three years.
