Killer K

Killer K

Have you ever had to play some alphabet game where you had to come with words that start with a certain letter?

If so, you probably know that some letters are really challenging. Of course, there are the usual suspects. I’m looking at you, X, Z and Q.

Then there are those letters that you don’t fear because you just know that there are plenty of words that start with them, like S, T and R.

Then there’s K.

Gray, grey

Gray, grey

I have always been confused about the correct spelling of gray/grey. I’ve seen both and yet have resisted doing the research to answer which one I should use. The resistance comes because I suspect gray is more correct, but I like grey better.

C is for the C-word

No, not that C-word. I guess I should have said C-words as in words that begin with C.

C. This cool character has the capacity to change colors. It can be hard (as in cruel) and it can be soft (like cerulean). It even lends this chameleonish quality to its cousin H so together they can sound hard (as in character), soft (as in cache) and even semi-hard (as in choice).
