a2z-h-smallJoin me during the month of April as I blog through the alphabet. My theme will be What’s In A Name. I will attempt to write up a short fictional character sketch beginning with a different letter of the alphabet each day. Remember that a place can also be a character.


Just look at her! She thinks she knows it all but when I ask her even the simplest of questions, she doesn’t know the answers. Sure she knows how many ounces make a quart or how many cups in a gallon but does she know my next door neighbor’s name? That’s info I could really used! Does she even care that she is failing me when she can’t answer my questions?

That’what gets me. I’ll ask her a question and she’ll answer, “sorry, I don’t know that one, “but she doesn’t even sound sorry. It’s just a job to her. The other day, after four “I don’t knows” I got so mad that I pulled the plug. I stomped right over to the couch, pulled it away from the wall, reached for the plug and pulled it. That’ll teach her. Now she just sits there in that black cylinder, skulking because she can’t enlighten the world with her useless knowledge anymore!

Take that Alexa!
