ADHD alphabet

Just because it’s fun. This thing was in my Facebook memories on Friday. Here we go, first word that comes to mind for each letter – and the first thoughts said word inspires. Here we go:

  • A – ape – Distant relative, who might well get to test a vaccine before people
  • B – basic – When all else is ripped from life, back to basics it is.
  • C – champagne – My favorite drink.
  • D – dude – Dude, dudette, whatever.
  • E – evening – Sun goes down and it’s time to chill.
  • F – funny – …as a heart attack. Life is.
  • G – garage – We have one, full of stuff. In our previous home it was H’s mancave.
  • H – hair – I really need a haircut. I really need to at least snip my bangs.
  • I – irony – The irony is that there’s nothing ironic in Alanis’ “Ironic”.
  • J – joke – As long as we have a sense of humor, we’ll be fine.
  • K – keeper – I just finished Kate Morton’s The Secret Keeper a few days ago.
  • L – laugh – It’s good to laugh, it helps your mind stay healthy.
  • M – manhole – Learned this word some seven years ago and it became a favorite.
  • N – novel – Well, I do love reading.
  • O – ornament – I like peculiar ornaments.
  • P – paramount – Pictures? Also one of those words I really like.
  • Q – quarantine – Really, was there any other option here?
  • R – rice – H keeps telling me that soon we’ll all be just eating rice.
  • S – sushi – Not eating this favorite food of mine while avoiding fast carbs.
  • T – tornado – None of them generally here in Finland.
  • U – usher – Another favorite word, but I myself don’t like to be ushered.
  • V – variety – It’s good. Because we’re different and like different things.
  • W – water – Clean water is the most important thing for life.
  • X – X-ray – no xylophones, ok!
  • Y – youth – …is stupid. Like those students in Florida despite Corona.
  • Z – zebra – In Finnish it’s spelled with an S and double E, seepra.

Bonus track – the scandic letters (and obviously Finnish words):

  • Å – åsikt – Opinion (in Swedish). We all have one.
    Really, this is a totally Swedish letter, even called “the Swedish O” in Finnish. I don’t think there are any Finnish words containing, let alone starting, with Å.
  • Ä – äiti – Mother. Me.
  • Ö – ötökkä – Bug. Soon it’s summer and all sorts of bugs are out again.
