All*rgic to (YOU KNOW WHO)

My throat hurts today. Scratchy. Painful. Raw. I just got up from night’s dark as pain shot through my body. Plant dust abounds, and all of my nasal canals cry out. I do shots to avoid this, but alas, to no avail. Vitamin C is my companion today. And gin and tonic. My throat will claim victory tomorrow. No skirmish has a finish without a fight.

Whew! Pretty sure that paragraph is free of any Es! And pretty sure I’ve already used 11 Es since ending that paragraph. Thanks, babysteps22 for the nomination for the “Allergic to E” challenge! It was a great opportunity to try communicating my inner bitterness without use of the word “bitter” itself. Which gives me an idea…

My Nominees:

Bitter Ben – Because, like me, he will be bitter about typing a paragraph (inherently about bitterness) without using the word bitter.

Ally – Because with her extensive vocabulary, this exercise will be a piece of cake.

Mrs. Spike – Because she is a life-long learner who has learned to embrace challenges.

Salvageable – Because of his love of writing.

Schnitzel – Because she is a hilarious writer, and I want to read her take on this challenge… um, prompt… Darn E’s… they’re everywhere…

The Rules:

Write a whole paragraph (a paragraph sounds easy right?) without any word containing the letter “e”. Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge. They must do it within 24 hours or it is considered as failure. If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame. If you win, wallow in the Page of Fame.
