When I was a lonely
, I used to amuse myself for hours by talking in letters. I think it probably came out of a Garfield
riddle I read in Garfield's Big Fat Book of Jokes and Riddles
It was something to the affect of:
"What seven letters did Garfield say to the fridge when he opened it?"
"O I C U R M T"
That got me thinking
, and every now and again I would become downright obsessed
with talking in letters for hours at a time
. I used to give mock
interviews to 60 Minutes
news anchors in which they marveled at the little boy who only spoke in letters, and had done so for a year or two straight.
I found you could
. You had to think quick, and I'll admit sometimes you had to squish
the letters closely together, trail off after the harsh sounds
of a "T" or "D", or use some numbers
here and there.
But it could, and can, be done.
"U R S O B U T F L.....2 M E....K N T U C?"
, I guess, much more so than plain old 3LC
