Sorrowfully, May:O, they will berate you, Uncool L-J snarling at your creative but "unruly" word sequence. (16)


Someone needs a New Years Resolution, but you are right, Endy, the new
sentence is supposed to begin with the last word of the previous
entry, not just appear somewhere.

Ooooh, my bad. I got lost in translation. I totally forgot about the rule mid construction. I agree, out it goes. Sorry

Lol, literal confusion. "Like a chicken with a fork." From my recent watching of The Butterfly. A lovely French film.

Perhaps, I would have done better to channel my admiration for Stephen King.

Not a problem at all. Happy New Year, btw.

So your sentence is: Missouri.....

Happy New Year, Luke smile

Missouri, the great seal of the state is, united we stand [and] divided we fall. (15)

I joked that I was house sitting, going to write my novel (The Shining). We ventured west, travelled through Missouri (post card in every state for my grandmother) and hit treacherous roads in Colorado. A great joy to see Dan, my son. Making a stand in Nevada? Like walking through a whisper...now how does spelling or misspelling relate to candy via Sanskrit?

Fall to my knees, I do, and bow to anyone who Speaks or
even understands Sanskrit (16).

"Sanskrit," I've been told, is what a dyslexic striptease artist should look like halfway through her act (17)

"Act your age", a senseless command when spoken to a child
who is just being his age accordingly.(18)

Accordingly, I went to the haunted house, but my journey proved to be in vain, as nobody was in. (19)
