When you write about your life on a blog for eight years, the stories start piling up. Some are bad, some are good, and some are just there to save you from a hard letter during the A to Z Writing Challenge. I already wrote about the difficulty of the letter V.
The letter V.
Originally posted February 9, 2011. Emma would have been a 4-year-old preschooler and Kate would have been about 18 months.
Emma has show and tell on Friday. This week’s theme is “something that starts with a V.”
Could there be a harder letter? X, maybe? I sent a group text to my immediate family for help. This is what they replied with:
Victoria’s Secret catalog
Heidi’s Vase – Heidi is my parent’s dead dog sitting in an urn, not a vase. Nice try.
Victoria, Posh Spice doll
Just bring something purple and call it violet.
Voluptuous breasts in a magazine
Her Aunt Jessica – her Valentine.
Vicks Vapor Rub
I can’t send Emma to school with a Victoria’s Secret catalog or my parent’s dead dog’s ashes. I’m going to go with my brother’s suggestion and have her bring “something purple and call it violet.”
