Last night at dinner, while other families were conversing about art and politics, my family and I were discussing our favorite letters. And like many other Sesame Street topics of conversation, it was polarizing. My daughters and I all (of course) chose the first letters of our names as our favorites. Mine being C. But just because C is for Christy doesn’t mean I’m biased solely because of THAT.
I love C because of its lovely crescent shape. C is a smile turned on its side.
C is also for all the very best foods. Cake, Cookies, Candy, Cupcakes, Cabbage (yes, I like cabbage), Coleslaw, Chips. CHOCOLATE. Cream. Chinese food. Carrots. We couldn’t even eat without C as in Chewing. Chowing. Chow.com.
And half the world would still be asleep w.out their morning Coffee.
C is the beginning of Christmas, the most beloved of all holidays.
It’s the basis of all friendships, what with chatting, clapping, and copycatting.
And think of all the animals beginning with C: cats, camels, crabs (sorry),
C is CUTE.
Curlicue. Constantinople. Coat Closets.
Granted, cholera and crucifixion are pretty crappy. As is crap. But what about Cheers!! And cha-ching! And Constant Comment tea.. which is just about the best thing around.
And where would we all be without compliments, huh? Closeness. Cuddling.
Today’s post was brought to you by the letter C.
