I think Sparteye's the person who had us doing something like this lo these many years ago: take the first and last headwords of an open dictionary, and make a sentence out of them--the weirder the better. I'm not sure if I have that right; I'll ask if she's willing to come take a look. But if there are any takers, I'll offer some from the Chambers Jo gave me:thymy and tight. When you do one, put two more for the next person.

Time was tight, the mood was mellow; we made love in a thymy field of yellow.

Dang, y'alls' words're making me feel like a pulcinella, always having to look things up; but I plow ahead anyway 'cause I'm as optimistic as a pup! Ew, that was terrible!
