  • Alphabet Sentence thingy
    Just post one sentence at a time and it has to begin the the next number in the alphabet. (I'll make one starting with A, the next person B, etc.) When we've done all 26 letters (or however many are in the language you speak), we'll, how about, It starts with one letter and ends with the next? ok here we go.
