If I had a brain…

04 Mar

scarecrowToday’s DP: Twenty-Five is: There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one of them. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!)

And the first thought that came to this fatigued brain of mine was “I’m not awake and aware enough to attempt this challenge.” I slept in this morning, I needed to, yet as I sip coffee, the first cup is almost gone, thank goodness for caffeine, I am becoming coherent. I wrote my last post on the challenge I tried. Woo Hoo!  So now I am (almost) awake enough to attempt this prompt.

Writing without using at least one of its letters. Well, it’s time for me to get another cup of coffee, and to figure out what course of action to take over the rest of this hour, and see if I can accomplish at least a few of the goals I set.

The prompt made me think of scene in the Wizard of Oz, and I thought it fit…Well I have a brain, it is just not functioning at full throttle this morning. So what letters did I leave out? Hmmm

    I did not see the letter x or j so you did well without caffeine and was so glad for the ping back thank you…

      I don’t think I used the letter Y, either. Thanks, you’re quite welcome. I thought about not using a vowel, but I didn’t have enough caffeine in me, lol!

        I am amazed that I got through it as my coffee was perking… 🙂

      LOL! I’m on my fourth now. And my headache is finally gone. When I get those kinds of headaches the only thing that helps is caffeine and ibuprofen–it means a migraine is coming and I try to avoid them at all costs. 😀

      It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, but then I didn’t try omitting a vowel from my post.
