Abecedarium of Demise: The Letter S



Sidney went to Sumatra to Study Simians in the wild
but he Suffered from a Syndrome that caused him to Spasmodically Swear out loud



The elephants were Suddenly Spooked by his Salty Screed,
and Sidney was Sadly Squashed in the ensuing Stampede.

Poor Sydney.

I admit I am shallow and mean and laughed at his dramatic demise with protruding tongue!

Thanks Julie for making this such an amazing meme each week!

You are stupendous!

Cute! Viki said that she will miss Alphabet Thursday when it ends. It does not have to end. You can double up the letters such as pp or go qu. As a teacher this can be stretched to all eternity. Thanks for sharing.
