Would You Look at This

Wow. Check this out. Exactly what you were hoping for – another website with blog postings.

I was going to post about a piece of toast (just because it rhymes with post).
But now I think I won't.

Don't.

That's the only other word I can think of that rhymes with "won't".

I believe that all blogs should have at least one set of rhyming words.
Just because.
Does.
Fuzz.
Was.

“Your brain is doing some great work when it's laughing.”
Jon Scieszka, Funny Business

“And everyone lived happily, thought maybe not completely honestly, ever after. The End.”
Jon Scieszka, The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales

“You know that you are a writer if you are imaginative. You know that you are a writer if you are curious. You know that you are a writer if you are interested in the things and people of the world. You know that you are a writer if you hold a minie ball in your hand and wonder about its story. You know that you are a writer if you like the sound of rain on the roof. And if you want to tell someone else about your heart and how waiting for the thunder sometimes makes you feel, if you work to find the words to do that, then you are a writer. --Maureen O'Toople in the short story "Your Question for Author Here”
Jon Scieszka Katie DiCamillo, Funny Business
