Plan V?

Blame it on the Rain today! My brain may have gone a little crazy.  One thing that you can be guaranteed about with my blog is that you never know what is coming! 

We all have been there.  Making plans and not having things go as planned.  Resorting to plans C, D and E and hoping something may work before you get to Z!  Have you ever thought about what the letters may be feeling as you work through your plans?  I hope this crazy post brings to you a smile and a laugh;  we all need some craziness in our lives at times!

“A” was Anxious to get the show on the road.  “B” felt Bold and”C” was full of Confidence, mixed with a little Craziness perhaps.  Surely their plans would work, but alas they only Crumbled as “C” began to waver in his Confident feeling.

“D” was Dancing a jig over the chance that now he had to make this plan work.   Unfortunately his plan only caused more Dissaray.

Energetic “E” stepped up to the plate to show how it was done, but in the End he Encouraged “F” to give it a try.  “F” tried but Flopped as “G” could only Giggle and Grin. He was enjoying watching this Game unfold.

“H” ran past “G”, he wouldn’t be Held back.  With his pal“I” and her Inquisitive nature and their Jolly pal “J”, their plans Just had to work.   Unfortunately they quickly realized that they  had thought wrong.

“K” and “L” speedily passed up their chances.   “K” could often be Klumsy. “L”  knew she had no chance for she rarely had good Luck with any of her plans.

M” watched as he let out some Moans.  “N” simply Nodded in agreement with “M’s” Moans.

“O”  was trying to be Oblivious to the fact that Z was drawing nearer.   “O” encouraged “P”  to  Patiently Press On.  Surely P must have the Perfect Plan!

“Q”  had a plan, but it was filled with Quirks and so did not work!

“R” was a Runaway.  It didn’t want to be a part of any plan,  but it tried to give Reassurance that the plan would still work.  Reassurance as it Smirked in the corner with “S”.   Those 2 together often led to Trouble.   Trouble it was when “T” tried to take over.  He had felt that surely he would be Triumphant when his plan began, but it ended leaving him feeling Totally confused.

It looked like it was Up to “U” to save the day and try she did but it appeared that their  plan was Unraveling.  If so that meant that “V” was the next one up.   Would they be Victorious?

“W” was filled with Wit and wasn’t Wavering in her belief that Winning was in sight.  “X” was X-cited about the hope that “W” felt for “X”  had no clue what she would do if she was called upon.

“Y” was spinning her Yo-Yo and practicing her Yodeling in case her turn came.  She turned to Yap something to “Z”  about how close his turn was coming.  “Z”  apparently wasn’t worried, instead he was busy doing his favorite thing.   Catching up on  his Z’zzzzzzz’s.

 

The Alphabet Game

I was thinking about the Alphabet today and yes,  I know,  what a thing to think about.  It had to do with one of my short stories on Friday.  The one about how if Plan A,B,C,D ……don’t work there still are lots of letters until you get to Z.  Don’t give up, you have plenty of time!

While thinking,  a memory flashed in my mind of when my teenagers were little and we would go on walks.  A lot of times I would start our little Alphabet game.  The one that I am sure some of you have done before.   In the game you pretend that you are going on a trip and you are making your list beginning with the letter “A”.  The first person would name something starting with the letter “A”.  Then the 2nd person repeats what the first person said and they name something with the letter B;  it continues on until you get to Z.  This game was always guaranteed to bring laughter!  We took  all sorts of creative things on those “trips” and it helped us sharpen our memory skills.

Thinking of the Alphabet also made me think of  Jinx and Jangle, our favorite wacky elves.  What do you think they would take along on a trip with them?  They hope to be leaving for a trip to the North Pole pretty soon,  for they really want to get their own team of reindeer this year!  Do you think it is possible?

It also made me think of  when I was a child and we would go on long road trips.  My sister and I would try to beat each other in another version of  The Alphabet Game.  You would read signs to find letters.  The first person who got the whole way through the alphabet won! My parents would join in too at times.  The letter “Q” and “Z” were always the hardest ones to find.  “R”  was a pretty easy letter,  for there were signs for Rest Stops all the time and “X” was never a problem due to the “Exit” signs.

What wasn’t fair was when there were more signs on the opposite side of the road from where you were sitting.  That is when you would stretch over your sister to get a closer look at the signs!  Do you have memories of playing the Alphabet Game or other games in your car?  When we would drive close to Zoo’s, Z was suddenly easy to find.

Zoo’s make me think of animals of course.  What is your favorite animal that begins with the letter “A”?   Can you think of one?  Of course the letter “Z” is an easy one for the name of an animal.  Which makes me think of the movie “Racing Stripes”.  That  was a family favorite for awhile.  It really is a cute movie, how could you not fall in love with the precious Zebra.  I also never knew that flies could have so much personality!

Personality makes me think of personality traits.  Which ones can you name that begin with A,B or C ?  Or you can get extra credit if you can think of ones that start with the letters Q,  X or Z!

Before the night gets later and ” ZZZzzz”   land draws near I think I will bring this post to an end.  Feel free to leave an answer to any of the questions in this post in the comments below.  Have a wonderful rest of your day and hoped you enjoyed this little spontaneous Alphabet Game.
