Something happened yesterday… Someone, issued me a challenge! Yes indeed! The one! The only! The amazing Penny nominated me to continue a fun but remarkably tough challenge: write a paragraph without using the letter “e”. I was surprised, but glad to see my name among the nominees. I haven’t ever done anything like this before, so thank you for letting me be a part of this, Penny! ^_^
Now, the (copy-pasted) rules:
Write a whole paragraph ( a paragraph sounds easy right?) without any word containing the letter “e” (still easy for ya?)
- By reading this you are already signed up.
- 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 Hall of Noobs
- If you win, wallow in the Hall of We
- You will receive a pingback to your post to know if you have passed or failed.

So, do you know how many words contain that blasted little vowel in the English language alone? Neither do I, but there are a lot of them, so this is not going to be easy… But I shall overcome! Let’s do this!
“How you doing today?”
“Not bad, not bad… Amazing, actually!”
“So what’s this about?”
“Right! You know that study I was working on?”
“That crazy study without anything substantial going for it and which nobody thinks will amount to anything?”
“Uh-huh!” I said, oblivious to his obvious sarcasm. “I was working on it again and I ran into a truly fascinating… Uhm, how do you call it again… A…”
“Yup! A thing! A truly fascinating thing!”
“… What is it?”
“Okay, all I had to do was taking away just this part and… Bam! It turns a fox thought up by a bug aficionado from Japan into an anarchist from a story by a British author of comics. How brilliant is that?!”
“Alright… That’s… I… You, carry on your good work now…” And following a short gust of wind I was on my own again in my room.
And in high spirits and with a big grin I got back to saving our world!
And there you have it. A conversation using the theme of the challenge with two (not incredibly) subtle pop culture references fit in, between two, scientists? Wizards? Artists? What are they? … Oh well… There wasn’t a single “e” in there! This certainly deserves to be called a challenge. Definitely a fun one, though!
Time to nominate the next contestants to continue on our quest to eradicate the E. And I have chosen:
Aaand, go! ^_^
