Life in progress



I’m here to admit a transgression. A future one, which makes things worse. Up until now I’ve been choosing my A-Z Challenge words according to the page I open my thesaurus to, and that will work fine on Monday for the letter “W.” But “X,” “Y,” and “Z” are going to be more difficult. You see, there is only a page and a half for “Y,” a half a page for “Z,” and an unbelievable single word for the letter “X.” That word is xenophobic. Which in and of itself is a fine word. An interesting word. BUT, my philosophy for this A-Z Challenge has been all about the surprise. Knowing what the word is going to be ahead of time will ruin that completely.

So this is what I propose to do: For the last two letters of the alphabet I’m going to close my eyes and point. With any luck my finger will actually land on the page and not in my mashed potatoes. For the letter “X” I’m going to choose a word that starts with “EX.” There are six pages to choose from so I’ll still be in a position to improvise.

That’s my decision and I’m stickin’ to it.

Here’s some ducks to distract you from my hasty exit.

  1. I’m using an eX word too. Those last letters are a problem for me because I have no Cleages named anything starting with X or Z There is a Y, but too recent, I think.


  2. What a great idea and it surely is not cheating…I knew a girl years ago who would choose a word in the dictionary every morning that way and learn that new word.


  3. Yes, ducks are cute. But look on that far shore – there are BUNNIES!

    Oh, was there as post I was supposed to be looking at? Sorry.


  4. You could close your eyes and point to one of the words that Willowdot21 wrote for you. That would be just as good as…OH LOOK DUCKS!


  5. Ducks! Ducks! Ducks! Look at the ducks! What was that you said Linda?


  6. I was going to say something about X and Z, but ducks – wow, ducks, those are awesome.
