Choose a topic/theme and make an alphabetical list of words, phrases, photos...however you want to share your topic/theme.
Topics can range from pet-peeves, vacations, people who have influenced your life, jokes, favorites, philosopher's quotes/sayings, birds, flowers...anything. The sky is the limit. Your ABC list can be depicted with words, photos, illustrations... You are limited only by your imagination. Be funny. Be serious. Be creative. Be sarcastic. Be there, or be square.
And, yes, of course you may bend the rules. Just entertain us. If you can't do all TWENTY-SIX, do as many as you can. (If you have kiddos, let them join the fun and help with the list. Make it a family, brainstorming session.)
I've pondered long and hard about what theme to use for my ABC list. Should I make it clever? Funny? Thought-provoking? Should I just break the rules and write something completely unrelated? No, but I am going to totally cheat! This was an A to Z meme that I was tagged with almost a year ago and I'm going to repeat it for this Fun Monday, although I have updated it a bit because it's amazing what's changed in the course of a year! Boring? Yes, sorry. Unimaginative? Oh yeah...it's that third Monday of the week brain fart thing!
