#SoCS Feb. 8/2020 PACK


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “(un)pack.” Use “pack” or its opposite in your post. Have fun!

“(un)pack”

My dad knew how to pack a vehicle. We were three girls, my parents two dogs and a live chicken. My dad packed the car with space for all of us and heaps of luggage for three weeks on holiday in the Lowveld in the old Transvaal (today Mapumalanga) into our car. Those days it was at least a four-hour drive to our destination.  He also knew how to pack a bag or suitcase. He’ll first fold up everything and then pack it so everything fits in no matter how much you want to take with you. I learned how to pack while watching my dad and today I can also pack a lot into a suitcase.

      Ek was gedurig in my Pa se geselskap. Saam met hom kar reggemaak en geploeg en geplant. Ek moes altyd hom geselskap hou terwyl my Ma en twee susters binne gebly het.

          Is so. Ek moes ook altyd die vra werk doen as ons bv erens heen wou gaan. Tot vandag word ek as witbroodjie gemerk net omdat ek met hom kon praat of vrae vra!

    Apparently your useful suitcase packing skills carry over into other areas of life, because you packed a lot into this short post. I’m reminded of my father who was in the Marine Corps and used to roll up his clothes for packing. He passed this on to my son.

      Yes, I learned the rolling up later years. It helps so the clothes don’t crinkle too much. The 23 kg luggage for travelling over seas needs to be packed tight so you use up all yhe space without going over the weight!

      Haha, ja daardie hoender het lewendig saam gegaan vir Kersfees! Ek onthou ook dat toe ons by die huis kom wou ek gaan kyk vir eiers toe skop die wit haan my. Steeds n litteken op my kuit waar hy geskop het.
