Today’s prompt was a bit different. We were to write short sentences, in a sort of letter, to someone or something. It was to begin with Dear somebody … and keep going on the list until you’ve had enough  finished, I guess? Strange, but it’s interesting.

Dear Period…Just stop it. I mean it. Stop.

Dear Exclamation Mark or Point or whatever you’re called… I want to use you sooo much, but have been warned against abusing you too much. Who me…Never!!!!!!

Dear Comma…You want to be here, there, and everywhere, and you’ve put me in a comma coma.

Dear Parentheses…You’re as sweet as a hug (embrace) right in the middle of a sentence.

Dear Colon, and your semi-twin, semi-colon… I haven’t needed you very much; keep going on your way: keep going, pause, keep going a little more: bye…

Dear At Symbol…You’re cute and versatile. You are very handy each @ and every time.

So, here we go with Day # 3 – Letter C …

#AtoZChallenge 2021 April Blogging from A to Z Challenge letter C

So, I’m in a silly mood this afternoon. This post is just some of the craziness I think of all the time, every day, random bits of this and that. Sometimes I can focus long enough to put together a coherent blog post, which sounds like I know what I’m talking about. Other times I just write down the free flow of thoughts in my notebooks, and I have a lot of them. (thoughts and notebooks)

So, back to the title of this. I had my fingers on the wrong keys to type the word cauliflower. It looks silly. So, I left it there. Actually, I’d been thinking of that word … how do you pronounce it? I’ve looked in the dictionary, and it’s pretty straight forward… ko-li-flau-er…with some little do-dads on top of the letters, that I don’t really know what they mean, and this keyboard probably don’t have them, anyway.

So, here’s what I was thinking about how to say it.

Call – a – flower ( is this a bit like ‘phone-a-friend’?)

Call – ya – flower ( Hey, come here, flower. Except flowers don’t generally travel around)

Collie – flour (like a dog? Covered in flour? Or, heaven forbid, flour made from a dog?)

I usually go with the second example, most of the time, even though I know it is wrong. Maybe it is just because of the southern (or Texas) dialect/accent?

So, anyway, cauliflower is a funny word. (and yes, I do like to eat it)

So, there are sure a lot of parentheses in here, and the word so…don’t ya think?

So, again, thanks for stopping by for a few laughs on this afternoon. Have a great weekend! (and try not to think of the word cauliflower too much!)
