Something's Missing

Feeling a little like Ella Minnow Pea without the use of one of my favorite letters. It is not an outlawed letter, though it feels like it with it's stickiness and resistance to comply.

It is a letter that is central to my name. It is the letter that plays a leading role in so many of my son's nicknames. Without it, I can't even accentuate my words so that they pop out at you and shout, "Hey!"

I would cry for my loss however even those words depend on my old lost friend. Spend a day with a vanquished letter and you will know my pain.

Here's hoping that my dear lost letter will return once again to my side for without it, I am without words to share stories such as this or create alliterative titles such as this one and this. I may never again have freedom to give this rattling it's proper name or due, none the less ever create a greater novel.

Please, if you're reading this help me. Help me find my vanished friend. Without it, I can't even provide a proper quote. "Help me, you're my only hope."
