The Alphagetti Oracle

Things began to get a bit weird during senior lunch when a double-dare eating contest ended with Daphne Dodona puking up all that alphagetti on the floor of the girls’ basement . . . although even this wouldn’t have been particularly remarkable had not one of her friends noticed that a bunch of the letters she’d regurgitated had come together to form words and that those words appear to have foretold not only the embarrassing failure of Vanessa Rogers’ halter top in sixth-period gym, but the first four questions from the quiz Mr. D. surprised them with at the end of the day.

  1. For July, the members of Exquisite Corpse wrote 100 words a day on each letter of the alphabet in turn, plus a few extra characters to round out the month. α was one of those characters.

  4. I should like to know what words there were formed by the alphagetti! We used to eat alphabetical soup! My children loved it, perhaps that was the beginning of their love of reading.

  5. I think Roger said it succinctly... Odd. But it did make me smile... and it's a creative writing exercise. :-)

  6. A fascinating exercise! (I'd also like to know what were the words formed by the alphagetti.)
