no "E" in the entire thing

I just liked the challenge. Here's a paragraph with not one single "e" used in it. The words actually make a modicum of sense.

Playing football was fun. John thought that action, contact, pain and guts laid out a rough road to walk, but tough guys did it. Hit and growl. Growl and hit. It was tough work, but John could do it. That rough road was just a road. No big thing. John had no doubt in his mind. THIS country boy could do it. And John would, too.

All-Star. That was his goal, and John would find a way.

Can YOU do that?


Quick! Delete "No big dEal" and this comment too! LOL

Jordan and Pat fought constantly. A pair of contrarians born to annoy, both took particular joy in bringing a sibling down. As mama’s days ran on watching such unruly young’uns, a swath of gray was born within a patch of glossy, black hair. A fist for brunch and a whuppin’ for lunch, Jordan and Pat took turns nourishing a lust for pain.

Dude, are ya drunk? I count three if you include that last sentence. Renee's looks pretty squared away tho...

If you can count three "es" in the blockquote, then I want some of what you're drinking. I didn't say THE ENTIRE POST had no "es" in it, dumbass. I said that I wrote ONE PARAGRAPH with no "es."

Now, count again.

I only counted one E in there. It was in the word "another". Other then that,I missed the other two the hollerin's about.

There is the "E" in "Another". But you still did a Hell of a lot better than I would. Good try.

There was a NOVEL written in the late 19th - early 20th century without the letter "e" anywhere in the text. Don't believe me - "Dogpile" it.
So don't get cocky....
