Abishag and I, both word-lovers, would play games with vocabulary or make up new words, etc., just to keep the wheels turning in our brains.
This somewhat awful sample was based on a Victorian? game that was even mentioned in Dickens. We always played for fun, not points.
A is for Awesome cat
B is for Brave (surviving that terrible snow storm on her own)
I is for Intelligent, of course
S is for Special (never another)
H is for Helpful, in editing
A is for Ageless (Abishag never looked her real age)
G is for Good Girl, even when she was being ornery.
Abishag: (sigh) Honestly, human, you are silly sometimes.
Yes. I know.
But I still love you.
Thank you, Abishag. I love you, too.
Of course you do.
