E is for ... ???

Thanks to all who dropped by yesterday, and thanks for all the congratulations on my future endeavor! I'm so thrilled! :o) The answer to yesterday's post was, DISGUST. Today I'm going to be a little different and post a little poem instead!

If you are new to this blog please read the note in the header above this post so you know what to do! Thanks!

Pants down behind bus
Kneeling beside you
Warm yellow trickle
Soiled shoe, smelly hand
face flushed — adieu!
I bolt, giggle
leave you standing
drizzle, drizzle, drizzle …

So, can you guess the emotion / feeling / state of mind (a noun) depicted in this piece that begins with the letter ‘E’? It's an easy-peasy one! Please nip over to Nicole's blog to read her interpretation of our E-prompt word. Here’s the link!

PS: Laurel's Leaves interviewed me yesterday about how I put together my book trailer for String Bridge. If you have a moment, pop over and check it out! Laurel has an amazing blog. She's not participating in the challenge, but she has a VERY informative blog and it's definitely worth reading and following if you are a writer!!!



  1. The only word I ca think of is "Embarrassment"


  2. Ill have to go with embarrassment.

  3. Clever entry today, Jess! Love it!

  4. Definitely concur with embarassment! ;-)

  5. I'm with the others. Embarrassed.

    Now to check out Laural's blog. :D

  6. I supposed it's embarrassed, but I wanted to come up with a funny bodily function that starts with E. Something like urinate, or flatulate. Oh, I know!

    Expectorate. It's a verb, I know, just roll with me here.

  7. The epitome of embarrassment! ;)

  8. Well I have to go with others as well, embarrassment.

  9. e.e. cummings! Wait, no, too many capital letters...

  10. Hahaha! This made me laugh! Um... hm... embarrassed, I guess. I tried to come up with something else and failed!

  11. +JMJ+

    Like everyone else, I'm guessing it's embarrassment.

    I'd assume this was a trick and that the E word is actually harder, but you did say "easy-peasy," so I'm going with the obvious one! =)

  12. Embarrassed. Love it. You are so evil -- in a good way of course. LOL


  13. eeewww embarrassment~ Poor thing!

  14. I am going to follow the crowd and say embarrassement or embarrassed.

    Hedging my bets!

  15. snarky! i mean... empty.
    "E" is the Word...

  16. Embarassment - depending on the person maybe entertaining, LOL!

  17. Embarrassment! I hope it's a kid who peed his pants. As an adult it would triple the embarrassment.

  18. Embarrassment. You're right -- easy peasy!

    Found you from A to Z Challenge.

  19. Embarrassment definitely. =)

  20. I read Nicole's post first and that kind of gave it away...

    For a minute I thought your post was quoting the "Pants On The Ground" song from American Idol...


  21. LOL, embarrassed!

  22. Yup...embarrassment. Well done I am enjoying these dual posts between you and Nicole.

  23. how embarrassing! great post as usual. :P

  24. Everyone's guessed! No fun! LOL, I'm a new follower of your blog. Nice to meet you!

  25. What fun! I love the way you're playing A-Z! I'd have to say "embarrassed" too.

  26. Came here from Nicole's blog. Also guessing embarrassment. Love how you two are handling the challenge!

  27. While i like embarrassment I am going to go for just plain EWWWWWW.

    I think that fits even though it isn't an emotion and defeats the purpose of your game.

    As a nurse pee on my shoe is a constant possibility in my job. They just can't aim straight can they!

    Anyway GREAT to see an Australian Dictionary on your bookshelf. (I'm from Brisbane)

    Great blog. I love the A-Z game! i'm also doing a game/challenge on my blog as a response to picture prompts.
