G is for… just a tribute to G


G is a very nice letter, don’t you think? Not as nice as A – A is just so sturdy and stable. It would be hard to knock over an A, what with its solid base and symmetrical shape. A is the best letter. But G is nice, too. It might roll around a little bit and flounder, but it is more than just a C, because it has a kickstand to steady itself during the times when it really counts.

G is a worthwhile letter because without it, we would never hear giggling or gurgling. Girls would not gaggle. There would be no giraffes or grapes or gouda or gifts or Greta. Gallantry would not exist, and neither would gentlemen in general. I would never feel glad or giddy or glamorous.

True, there would also be no gauntlet, guillotine, or gut-wound. No guns, no grief. No germs. No goodbyes.

But all in all, G is good. Without it, this blog is just a blo.

    You are darling, my dear.

    Miss you lots. Actually I miss you every time I see your beautiful rug in my little apartment. :)

    G is alright. A is good too. But I don’t know what you’ll have to say about K. What a bad letter. K is by far my least favorite letter. Good luck with that one.

    Brilliant… That’s all I have.

    And Ike missed us! Crossing my fingers for the Gulf now.

    Goodness you’re glib! That was a glorious glossary of gab. You’re genuinely a gourmet of grammar.

    get the gist?

    G is the best. G is for me. G is for gippery whippery whee.

    Word verification is btemppry: be temporary. As in, be a temporary Nashville resident, and come back to Seattle to be my great gaggled Greenlake-walking friend soon. :)
