Here are a few posts from Twitter yesterday afternoon.
cbethblog (me): Is there really a need for the letter "C" in English when we have "S" and "K"? Oh yeah, there's "ch". "Ch" should be combined into 1 letter.
lestes65: @cbethblog I think the entire alphabet should be reworked. Like, what's with the need for "qu"? Why can't Q handle that alone???
cbethblog: Agreed! (Then I "Re-Tweeted" the "qu" Tweet so all my Tweeps could read it.)
Kama_: @cbethblog i am out of the loop. Have you declared war on the alphabet?
cbethblog: @Kama_ Ha ha! Well, Chickie was singing a song she made up about Costco starting with K. I explained it starts with C and then got to thinking how silly it is that we use the letter "C" for words that would be perfectly fine with a "K" or an "S." :)
And as I typed that, I realized...as bizarre as our English alphabet can be, it is perhaps even more bizarre that my daughter is making up songs about a warehouse store.
Perhaps a sign we're spending a wee bit too much time at Costco?
Note: Klearly, Kama_, lestes65, and I are Tweeps worth following, no qestion about it! So klick on our Twitter names above if you'd like to follow us.
Another note: lestes65 got so into this little conversation that she wrote an entertaining blog post proposing a NEW alphabet. Must-read!
Yet one more note: showmyface (also worth following!) Tweeted, "If you think the letter C is so superfluous, why the whole C Beth thing? Huh?" My response: "@showmyface I'm not giving up my C. Beth. K. Beth would make no sense." Of course, "K. Beth Blog" does sound sort of like "Que Beth Blog." Translate a bit of Spanish, and you've got "Why does Beth Blog?" Which, really, after this post...might be a valid question.
