My New Oxford Rhyming Dictionary

I had just received my new Oxford Rhyming Dictionary and was sitting at the kitchen table taking it for a ride when my husband stopped by for a cookie.

"Isn't it amazing," I gushed. "A dictionary full of words that rhyme."

"The amazing part," he fake smiled, "is that someone would buy it."

A momentary lapse. In my excitement over my new dictionary I'd let down my defenses. The husband vs. the dictionary controversy reared its ugly head.

"So what word are you looking for?" he wanted to know.

"A word that ends in 'p' or 'p-e-e'," I replied without looking up.

"That's easy," he said as he headed out the back door. "Beer."

And the footnoteMaven takes another blodging hit.

He's a hard man to live with (hardly), so it's a good thing he's easy on the eyes.

Love my book!

So, what rhymes with "cheek"? Let's look on the positive side... he's giving you writing material!

(B.T.W....we missed you somethin' awful today.)
