eureka! ee's here

For the ever evolving Indigo, who selected the letter "e" for me, I'm just thrilled to be doing this. Ecstatic, ya might say. {wink} The idea is that I list ten words {or things} starting with "e" that I love. Or ya know, feel that certain zip for, that erotic tingling, if ya will.

I was thinking about that, my relationship with the letter "e". When I was a child, my elementary school's classroom had these little cardboard drawings of items with short words to identify the item, and the sound/letter. "Bed" was chosen to help us lil ones learn how to pronounce the short sound of "e". I still picture it from time to time, to differentiate my ability to correctly say unfamiliar words; since I still have a little confusion between the way "bed" sounds and "pig" sounds. Some pronunciations still elude me.

Enunciating my words has always been a problem for me. When I was little, in that classroom with the pictured words and items; I had speech therapy. Well, I mean for several years, depends on whether my school offered that option. Sometimes, I still crow, "imma human bean!!" Yeah, I'm that much fun.

While "e is for evidence" for author Sue Grafton, "e" encompasses everything for me. From the somewhat corny {but a favorite nonetheless} dance hit "everlasting love" to the myriad of eateries {that feature eclairs, eggs, or etouffee} to exercises {for the enlarged me} to beloved characters {eeyore! egor, edgar, edison, earp, einstein, earhart, eastwood, eisenhower} to languages {english, espanol, ebonics~~which seems like it should be ebonix} to my favorite hours {evening} to authors {eyre, ee cummings, eliot, eco umberto, eddings, elroy, euclid, evanovich, erasmus} to detested names {edward, edmond, ethel, earl, humperdinck engelbert, emanuel, elton john~~great singer, bad name} to good names {elizabeth, eva, enya, eve} to favorite quotes {et tu, brute, et tu? to err is human...} to eight emotions and expressions {eros, exasperation, elation, excitement, effusive effervescence, evasive, eeeek, ersatz} to electronic services {eMail} to lyrics {i gotta peaceful eeeeeeeazee feeling} to my favored organs {eyes} to places {england} to one of my favorite places {emerson center} to favored luxuries {enamaled bathtubs} and brands {elmer's glue}...the list could go on and on and on and o

I'm sure that I am forgetting some very significant stuff, but exactly what, I'm not so sure. It's rather eclectic. And exhausting. Now, I'm stuck in the eeeeeee's!


  1. I absolutely loved the way you wrote this out. Your amazingly creative. Thanks for playing dear one. (Hugs)Indigo

  2. Oh! That was so exciting to read and if I thought I could, I would emulate the methodology with a different letter. However, I escaped the game as I've been exceptionally busy and evasive of late. And well, I just don't have the effervescent creativity that eagerly awaits your exposing it to the public.

    Very clever Sweet Girl.


Thanks for taking the time and effort to let your thoughts be known!
