Here is a new game.

Write a sentence of at least 12 words in which no word has more than 3 letters. It need not bear any relation to the sentence in the previous post, but it may do so if you wish. However, try to re-use as few words as possible from the immediately preceding post. There is no upper limit to the number of words in the sentence.

Here is the first sentence:


The red sun in the sky set, and so put an end to a hot day at sea.

Ter is too few, too tuf, not fun; four has more base to work with, but even so not that many more and not enuf to make a lot to send.

In other words, I suspect it’s too limiting to be a viable game. Even allowing four-letter-words..

But now, let me say: My new jeu may tax our wit, but we can do it if we try.

One day in May, as I sat in my car, I saw a red fox on an old oil can, but it saw me too and ran off as I got to it. But Bob ran on, got it, fed it, and let it go.

THE END

It was a bad day at the zoo. A yak ate a cat, a gnu bit an elk, and an old man hit a boy who had one toe in the ear of a hog. I had my eye on a big guy who got mad at his son, who had put a hot dog in his hat for fun. Oh God, did he see red! In the rat hut, I had to fix a nut on a rod. At the end of the day, I got a cab, had a cup of tea, and hit the hay.

You are much better than I. I've tried a couple times and will continue. Keep it up, one day I may make it.

Here is one using words of no more than 2 letters:

If I am in Oz, I go "Do it up!" as Al or Ed go by, or "No!" if it is up to me to do it.

I met an old man by the sea
And got him a big cup of tea.
I put ice in the pot
As the tea was so hot.
One day he may do it for me.

You may eat a lot on the big day, but do not go too far, or you may get ill. God Jul!*

*"Merry Christmas" in Scandinavian languages.
