Sophie of Sophie Speaks Up challenged me in a funny and exciting game of not using the letter “E” in any of the words that I will post in my response to her challenge. Quite a challenge but not really that difficult… Hehehe!
Before I write my response, here are the rules for this no “E” challenge:
1) Write a whole paragraph without any word containing the letter “E”
2) By reading this you are already signed up.
3) Challenge at least five bloggers to do the challenge. They must do it within 24 hours or it is considered as failure.
4) If you fail or pass, suffer in the Page of Lame.
5) If you win, wallow in the Page of Fame.
6) You can check your standings on my menu Your Standings.
So, let’s start with the challenge and here is my response:
May isang lalaki na walang tigil na umaaligid palibot sa isang simbahan. Ang nakakapagtaka, para siyang atubili na pumasok sa simbahan na ngayon ay may isang kasal na ginaganap.
Maya-maya ay natapos ang kasal at lumabas ang bagong kasal. Duon lumapit ang lalaki at biglang lumabas ang kanyang maitim na pakpak at sabay niyang hinablot ang kinasal na lalaki at kanyang nilipad pataas bago niya binitawan. Sabog ang ulo ng lalaki sa taas ng kanyang nilagpakan. Tuluyang nawala sa kalangitan ang lalaking may maitim na pakpak.
As there is no rule against writing in your local dialect or language… I wrote my response to the challenge in Tagalog (the Philippine National Language). Hahaha! With it, writing paragraphs without an “E” is so easy! It only took me a minute to write my response. Okay ba, Sophie? (Wink!)
Yup, it will be difficult not to have an “E” when writing stories that makes sense in English. It would be equally difficult not to have an “A” when writing stories in Tagalog.
I will leave it up to my readers to test their skills in writing stories without an “E”… But I added a new rule, it should be in English. 🙂
Have fun and let’s see what you can come up with! Cheers to everyone!
