The Letter I

Deb, over at Nope, Not Pam, has this weekly challenge called A Letter a Week where she gives us a place, an emotion, an adjective, a verb, and an animal all starting with the same letter. Then she asks us to write a post using those items and the letter she has given us, which this week is the letter I.

Here are Deb’s I-words:

Place – igloo
Emotion – insecurity
Adjective – illogical
Verb – idolize
My animal – impala

I idolize you, but my insecurity often causes me to make illogical choices.

Like the time I bought you that used Chevy Impala for your birthday even though I knew you didn’t have a driver’s license.

Or when I suggested that we escape the rat race, build an igloo in a remote part of northern Alaska, and go totally off grid together. What was I thinking?

And remember when I told you that my insecurities and poor decision-making skills would cause you to leave me.

See? I was right about that, wasn’t I?

    Igloo idea would have worked out well. No internet, papers bringing good news of the world…..

    When I was a kid, there was a jump rope chant that went by the alphabet, such as “A my name is Alice and I come from Australia. My work is accounting.” You’d jump through as many letters as you could and the first girl to complete the Zs won. I think this must be a derivative of that chant.

    An igloo… on a day when the heat index is over 100 that sounds kind of nice!
