gabbling guff on grape gloves
senryu by M. LaFreniere, all rights reserved
so day 7 in the A to Z challenge. I’m still doing all letter thing although the “on” slipped by.
G is a weird letter
G is a weird letter. filled with tons of negative words on talk talk like: “gabble, gibber, gab, garrulous, gag, gibe, glib, gloat”
Not “talk talk” related but also other fun but not so nice g words: “gaga, gaffe, galoot, gauche, gawk, gaudy, garish, gangly”
I really wanted to use gallinipper (a large insect like a mosquito that can inflict a painful bite) or gam (school of whales). Those are both new words for me but I couldn’t come up with anything.
The impetus for the glove senryu was that Literary Book Gifts offered to send me a pair of writer’s gloves in return for a review which I put up on cactus catz here. I agreed. Midnight my black cat helped me out with my first review. I liked the gloves and finished the review with
“The thing about the gloves is that I didn’t know I needed them until I got them. I always found gloves useless for typing as they make my fingers fatter so I hit the wrong letters all the time. In regular gloves, my typos become epic. So if my hands were cold, I either toughed it out or wrapped it around a cup of hot coffee to warm them up before going back to typing. Now I can wear these fingerless gloves in winter to warm my freezing hands when I stay up late typing. These will be perfect then.”
Now if only someone would offer me an RV in exchange for a review, I’d be a happy camper. Yeah, I know … but I can dream. It’s the only way I can think of to travel with the cats.
