Twenty-five

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Twenty-Five.”

Today’s challenge: There are 26 letters in the English language, and we need every single one of them. Want proof? Choose a letter and write a blog post without using it. (Feeling really brave? Make it a vowel!).

The prompt did not set forth a word threshold. It’s admittedly silly, yet I’m writing this late on a Friday night while everyone else is asleep. What the heck.

I changed the game a little bit. I decided to write a post avoiding one letter while incorporating each of the other twenty-five letters within the same paragraph. So which letter did I opt to omit for this assignment? Q, X, and Z seemed like tantalizing candidates at first. What a joke, right? How often do people write with those letters, anyway? No problem there; however, choosing one of those letters seemed contrary to the spirit of the prompt. After all was said and done, I decided on a different letter. This exercise sparked my brain more than gnawing on some qat.
