Wow, am I behind on my A-Z schedule!!! :-0 So far, I have covered a trip to Azerbaijan as well as being as bad a barber as I am a poet. Today I have quite a bit of catching-up to do, so I’m going to attempt to hack at the letters C, D, E, and F. Or, C, D, E & F. Either way. So…yah. Awkward…
Let’s think about this for a second. A nice illustration for my post, yes. We all love sesame street, right? (Well, most of us at least…or some of us…so, yah…awkward…) Analyze what’s going on though.
Cookie Monster says all kinds of things about cookies, but does he ONCE use the letter C’s real sound? Well how could he? C doesn’t have its own sound!!!
Hard C – Sounds like K.
Soft C – Sounds like S.
“Ch” C – Can be argued that this is C’s sound, but it is usually accompanied by an H.
So, C can sound like a K, and it can sound like an S. But when it comes right down to it, in the English language, C is near useless, except for the cases where we combine it with H to make the “Ch” sound. And in that case, the H only acts as a walking cane. So let’s rethink it.
In the words of Prairie Dawn: “Crummy.”
It doesn’t do to drive,
It’s far too dastardly stressful,
Dear readers, it is far too much to
Think about, (We’re disturbed enough already!!!)
Please don’t drive, darlings!
If no-one drove,
We’d have no
Accidents or dented traffic jams.
We wouldn’t hear the car door slam
When the neighbors came home at 1 AM.
If no-one drove, then no-one would
Be driven crazy,
The world would break out
And be flowerful…
I scratch my head and think a thought…
Well, perhaps forgoing driving
Would never be that powerful.
Hey, I told you all. I’m a bad poet. What can I do.
E & F
Elane and Fred went for a walk one sunny afternoon. Elane eagerly engaged Fred in an entertaining entrapment of a conversation. Fred simply walked on, frazzled his hair absent-mindedly, and fiddled with his fleece vest. Elane felt estranged, and embarked on a discussion of economics, in hopes of entangling Fred back into entertaining some thoughts. Fred simply said, “Foreign investors found that fifty-five percent of the forgone financiers facilitated faulty finances.” And with that, he forewent any more of Elane’s fantasies of conversation.Cabit Did Escape Failing!!!
In other words: I won. 🙂 A-Z Challenge, take that!!!
