E is for Extreme, Excessive and Everywhere

I'm so done with D; evolving to E. But not with anything as easy as 'E is for eye or for egg'.

Please. Allow me to explain. E is everywhere, and I’m not exaggerating! It is the most extensively used letter in the English language as well as several other languages.

There’s just no escaping E...or so I discovered when I took the dictionary with me to bed in my eagerness to get some excellent ideas for this week’s Alphabe-Thursday entry. My bad. Error. I dreamt all night about various combinations of letters and words involving E…EEEEK.

One might even say I was a bit excessive in my exploration, my elusive quest for enlightenment, edification and elucidation. I started out all enthusiastic, ecstatic and energized and eventually ended up totally enervated. In my encyclopedic escapade, I envisioned myself emerging ever more erudite as I explored the exotic to the esoteric and even the enigmatic, while carefully evading the eroticI went from excitement to ennui.

Eerily, I lay dreaming about how to eradicate the element E from the environment but that was not exactly efficacious. My head was on the edge of exploding, my sanity eroding, with each extra word that entered my exhausted mind.

In my estimation, E is eternal and ergo, not easily expunged or erasedeven the word etcetera has entirely too many Es. Not much chance of the enduring E ever being exiled from earth, except perhaps if we are either evicted or enslaved by extraterrestrials.

Let me emphasize that this examination with my own eyes has not led to enmity, but rather, I have extrapolated that E, while excessively employed, is here to be everlastingly enjoyed.

Now excuse me, please, as I will be making my exit. I must go early to an elegant event that I expect will be an epic evening of entertainment and an engaging encounter with an eclectic and endearing ensemble, not to mention exquisitely extravagant edibles!

Effectively, The End

Feeling empty-handed? You can enable an encounter that is especially your own with more esteemed individuals than empty-headed me, who have something exciting and eloquent to say about the extraordinary E over at Jenny Matlock's by simply exercising your finger and clicking exactly  here.
