Alphabet Thursday Games

I was walking along by a pond on Sunday. I saw a family having a picnic. It was a big family!...Thirty or forty at a minimum. But a big part was missing. Can you find out what?


I saw:

Four or so boys floating boats in a pond
Two moms grilling hot dogs
A group of moms knitting and talking and laughing
A bunch of girls playing Monopoly
Kids with iPods
Six boys and girls tossing a football around
Dads and granddads talking about sports and politics
A baby girl with a big black toy train and a baby boy with a small pink toy lion
Lots of food!  So much food for a picnic lunch! A giant sub sandwich or two, four kinds of soups, fruit of all kinds, chips and dip, cinnamon rolls, popcorn, candy, sushi, pasta salad, fruit tarts, flan, puddings, nuts of all kinds -- YUM!

And funny things, too....

A dog who was drinking milk from a glass!
Cats who could walk on two paws without falling!
A pig who could draw with chalk! And paint, too!
A duck who had on sandals and socks, and a small pink t-shirt that said "Quack!"

This family all had on ski hats and big coats, too, but it was sooo hot that day! Almost as though it was July or August, not autumn. It was an awfully odd day for coats and hats outdoors! But still, all had fun that day, hot or not. .

So what was missing from this family picnic?

Why, E is Exceptionally Absent! Happy Alphabet Thursday!

Now, that is quite an accomplishment writing a post that makes sense without an E in it.

Good job!

seeker said...

Thanks for double checking me on it! LOL! I actually did searches for "e" a couple of times as I was writing, just to be sure!

Absolutely brilliant!

Kudos on writing a whole story without the letter E. Now THAT is difficult.

I bow to you; impressive.

Very clever! How long did it take you to put together this post? You did great!

Mary said...

THAT is clever!!

Jenny said...

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

I feel like a total jerk!

I cheated!


I read this like four times and kept telling myself, 'focus, Jenny, focus!' And I still didn't get it.

And then I peeked at Sue's comment...just a peek truly.

And now I know the answer but I only know it because I'm a cheater.


I feel all dirty now.



But before I run off to take a shower in boiling water, please accept this little


as a token of my admiration for your cleverness.
