alphabet soup for the cluttered mind

Happy Saturday, dear readers! I hope the first full week of 2021 has been kind to you.

Today’s prompt from Five Minutes in the Morning is a delightful one, and is one of my favorites so far, probably because it combines alphabetizing and clearing the mind for the day ahead.

Think of a noun for every letter of the alphabet. You can also use cities or foods. I chose cities because I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t have made it past N without running out and getting some nacho fries from Taco Bell.

Nacho fries aren’t the only thing I’m craving after watching this

What else could you list alphabetically? Books? Bands? Parts of the body? Ice cream flavors? There are no wrong answers here! Just list things for five minutes, or until you run out of letters.

Thanks for stopping by on your way to enjoying the weekend, dear readers. I appreciate you.
