Seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero! It’s a palindrome countdown!
- Seven eves
- Six at pa’s. ASAP, taxis!
- Now five bev, if won
- Subaru of four — a bus
- Roger got three beer, h/t to Gregor
- Oh we’re here. Wow two were here! Who?
- One? No.
- Ode: we, I, desire divide no zero. Rezone, divide, rise, die, we do.
If you’re wondering, “h/t” is shorthand for “hat tip“. Palindromes for nine and ten are easy, but getting one for eight proved tough. The most I could think of was to do something with “*th gie*”, but words with beginning with “gie” are few — they are gie, gied, gies, and gieing and Merriam-Webster gives “gie” to be a “chiefly Scottish variant of give“. Hence, the countdown began at seven.
And here’s a bonus one given our election year mess.
Fool, aloof, senile, dismal.
Debated ace cadet?
A bedlam sidelines fool, aloof.
I’m a little behind on blog posts! Forthcoming is my session at #NJPAECET2 from a few weeks ago! Stay tuned. In the meanwhile, tell me which your favorite palindrome was!
