Posted October 10, 2007

A cool list today from The List Universe web site.

Do you have an aglet, a keeper?  Do you chew on your ferrule?

    I do NOT claim credit for this one! I shared this list with my wife and mentioned the 'challenge'. With her exceptional skills at writing and composition, I give you her answer, as IM'd to me just moments ago from her her workplace:

    "My shoelace came out of the aglet and my belt out of its keeper, the punt of my beaujolais bottle cracked; my philtrum and tragus tingled, and phosphenes clouded my vision when I fell between two bollards, having noted an odd kerf on one of them, marked in a weird dingbat font, which I measured with the ferrule of my pencil"

    (credit the still far too adorable ShebaDoll with that one)

    "...Tell her what she's won, Don Pardo!"

    I like this... also I agree with Gnat i'd like to see you make a paragraph using all of the words ;)

    Okay, now let's see you create a paragraph using all ten words. I always wondered what that watch thing was called, a keeper, huh? Wonder if that is why I choose a watch that clasps...
