All*rgic to (YOU KNOW WHAT)

I got to work this morning, and I saw that my duty is to form (or script) a paragraph without a most common sign or symbol. How can I do this? And on a Monday morning to boot! I will try to stir my brain into action, but it is hard to gain victory and claim any award on this occasion. Thank you for this amazing and difficult task, A. Aurora. I will claim my victims (for this duty) tonight. J.

If all that puzzles you, read through it again and see what is missing. Do you notice? The paragraph does not contain the letter e a single time (unlike this paragraph). I enjoyed Authentically Aurora’s challenge almost as much as I enjoyed her clever paragraph, which managed to include the theme of allergies while omitting the letter e. (I’ll bet she thought that no one noticed.)

The other part of my assignment is to choose five other bloggers to write such a paragraph. Here are the official rules:

Write a whole paragraph (a paragraph sounds easy right?) without any word containing the letter “e”. Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge. They must do it within 24 hours or it is considered as failure. If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame. If you win, wallow in the Page of Fame.

I would add the suggestion that the twenty-four hours begin when you first see the assignment, not from the time I post the assignment.

And the five honored candidates are… drum roll please…
