Yesterday I sat watching a little boy learning about the Alphabet….

A is for Apple, B is for Balloon etc.

I came home with the sounds ringing in my head and while preparing dinner, I turned the idea into a little game. Pick not one word for each letter, but three that sit well together.


Aim Above Appearance

Caring Condolences Comfort

Dance Date Drinking

Events Evolve Eventually

Gripping Guest Games

Valentines Value Victory

Wise Wander Wales – Oops! Sorry Magpie. 😉

XI Xmas Xylophones**

Yonder Youth Yodels

Zealot Zeal Zest

** This is the only letter I struggled with. A Xylophone is an instrument that always appealed to my ear; the problem was to find other words to go with it. Somehow X-ray didn’t sound right.

It is over to you now, I would love to see your choice!

    Sorry, Grannymar. How rude of me. Give me directions in Chinese and I’ll end up in Timbaktu.

    A xanthochroic is a fair haired person pale of skin; a xenophile (as opposed to the xenophobe) is one who enjoys and actively seeks out the foreigner, ie those of a different culture. As to the Xerox – that’s taking a photocopy of the charming blond, pale and made to feel welcome stranger.

    Wonderfully clever and creative! I’m, at the moment, being haunted by the fact that I should NOT be on the computer, I SHOULD be working out FIRST, so I’m plagued with guilt, watching the time click on, feeling the pressure to add something totally creative and all I can come up with is:
    Exercise Excuses Evolving Extremely Efficiently

    No, BHB, Grannymar has sheep that count the comments on her blog backwards FOR her, and then they put them in alphabetical and chronological order. THEN, she goes to sleep…..
