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 T.
Here are Deb’s T-words:
Place – tropics
Emotion – thrill
Adjective – tactical
Verb – tempt
Animal – toucan
Kelli was thrilled when I asked if her I could tempt her to take a vacation with me in the topics. “Oh goodie,” she squealed. “When can we leave?”
“I still have some tactical arrangements to make,” I answered. “I need to research to make sure to pick a venue where we have access to your favorite tropical bird, the toucan. Somewhere in Central or South America, I think.”
Kelli jumped up and left the room. “Wait, where are you going?” I asked. She returned a minute later carrying her iPad. “What are you doing with that?”
“I’m doing my own research,” she said. “Toucan play at this game, you know.”
“What are you talking about? What can toucans do?”
“Oh, jeez, Alan, you’re so thick,” Kelli said. “Toucan, as in ‘two can,’ as in two can play at this game.”
I rolled my eyes. “That was so punny I forgot to laugh,” I said.
