A – Z challenge: A is for…

01 Apr


Today is the first day of the A – Z blogging challenge, which has all sorts of complicated stuff attached to it, but boils down to; post something every day in April, (except Sundays) with each post themed around a letter of the alphabet.

Initially, I decided to go for A is for Alternative, but then I changed it to something else…

…which was A is for Apathy, but I couldn’t be bothered to write about that.

A is for April just seemed foolish.

I thought maybe A is for Architecture would give me something to build on…

…then I got sidetracked by A is for Absence and…No, it’s gone.

A is for Agnostic seemed like a good idea, but I’m not sure I believed in it.

I can’t put my finger on why, but A is for Abstract doesn’t appeal to me.

I could have used A is for Artificial, but that might seem a bit contrived.

I disregarded A is for Auxiliary, because I didn’t want to make extra work for myself.

A is for Aggravation sounds like far too much trouble.

I had a real dislike of using A is for Antipathy.

And I wasn’t sure I liked the look of A is for Appearance either.

Going with A is for Average struck me as rather mean.

You really would have needed to egg me on to use A is for Albumen.

I could have just picked something at random, like, um,…A is for Arbitrary.

But I eventually settled for this:

    I’d like to say A is for Ass but I wouldn’t want to give you a bum rap.
    Nice animation. Can’t wait for B. Sure to be a bitch…
