Spelling Bea

This poem may be one of the most challenging (for both the reader and myself) things I've written so far, so I'm excited to share it!  Throughout the poem, I've used the past 31 winning words from the National Spelling Bee.  Warning: dictionary may be required.

Idioms Anonymous

I enjoy playing with language, as I'm sure my faithful readers have been able to tell.  This short script is the reverse:  it lets language itself play.  Enjoy the post, and I hope you never use these phrases the same way again!

Gefilte

Many moons have passed since the first telling of the story of Atlantis.  How many moons?  Well, enough to make it time for the sequel!  Grandpa is back to tell the story of the origin of gefilte fish.  Bon app├ętit!

Last Thoughts

I don't write many pieces in the first person, so when I do, it's a momentous occasion.  I don't know much about Greek mythology, so when I use it, it's a momentous occasion.  This story is momentous.  No more to say.

It's a new year, so what better time than now to learn another lesson?  That means it's time for another parable for this era!  I hope you enjoy (and listen.  And learn.).
