Apparently there’s a game sweeping the blogworld–
and I read about it from So Many Books—she had been
given the letter “H”. One is supposed to tell his/her favorite
book, author, song, film and object that begins with the
assigned letter . . .
Now she’s assigned me a “T” and I’m supposed to write
about it on my post—sort of a chain thing.
So, since it’s “real feel” of 104 degrees today, it seems like a
good day to fool around with this little game.
BOOK with T–I expect we’re supposed to skip articles like “the”
and “a” so I run through a litany of titles beginning with t that
might qualify as a favorite:
Teacher by Sylvia Ashton-Warner (even though Spinster is
her better one)
Trixie Belden and the Red Trailer Mystery (!)
A Thanksgiving Visitor by Truman Capote
Tom Sawyer; Treasure Island; A Tree Grows in Brooklyn;
Tale of Two Cities; Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon
by Marjorie Kellogg . . .
But in the end, I’ll choose the same one you would choose:
To Kill A Mockingbird.
AUTHOR with T–a new interest, Colm Toibin? an old interest,
William Trevor? Good ol’ Elizabeth Taylor of Mrs. Palfrey at
the Claremont? Tolstoy? I think I’ll settle on James Thurber.
SONG with T–Those Were the Days is pleasant, but
I think I’ll choose The Twelfth of Never by Johnny Mathis.
FILM with T–that’s easy–Tootsie
OBJECT with T–that’s hard! but again, because the real feel
today is 104 degrees, I think I’ll choose a TUB of Edy’s
Slow-Churned Chocolate Ice Cream!
