Four Play

Having not left home the entire week I finally managed to get out and visit the mall this afternoon.

While walking and talking on the cell with mon cher ami, we were wondering why most foul words are four-lettered. In fact even 'foul' is 4 letters :D Apart from that F word and C word, I know many ordinary words that smell like a rotten egg in many households including 'Blog', 'Beer', 'Love', 'kiss' , 'Shit' and certain names :)

Sigh. Another 4 letter? Naah, that's just my legs crying in pain after 5 hours of window shopping. So am off now to cool my heels and watch the exciting game b/w Patriots & Broncos.

Till then, Tata :D

My four letter words are clean
Keep reading, you'll see what I mean
'Love' is my favorite one to say
I love to say it every day
And then there's 'kiss'&'hugs'& 'care'
And 'warm' & 'kind' & also 'fair'
Some others that you'll like to hear
Are 'hope' & 'pray' & 'help' & 'dear'
One word throughout all history
Rings loud & clear...that word is 'free'
'Help' 'wish' 'grow' 'good' 'best' 'true' 'heal'
'Talk' 'give' 'glad' 'sing' 'nice' 'joys' 'feel'
Use these words alot and see
How great four letter words can be..
