Game One–VIP ABC’s

OK– this week I have a new game to play. I’m fascinated with where my readers live. I know I’m getting visits from all over, but l’d love to hear from more people.

So here’s the plan — I’d like to see if I can get 2 comments representing each letter of the alphabet, with one commenter being from inside the USA and one commenter being from a foreign country for each letter. People can go by the name of their city, their state or their country.

If you go by your city, please tell me what country or state you are from too. I’d like to be able to look at the map with my kids afterwards and point generally to where people are from.

So, for example, for the letter A we could hear from Australia and Arkansas, B could be Belgium and Boston, etc. Make sense? You DON’T have to go by alphabetical order, but do BEGIN YOUR COMMENT with the letter of the alphabet you are claiming so that people can quickly scan through comments and see if ‘their’ letter is used up yet.

I have no idea if this will even work, but we’ll give it a whirl. I’m going to leave this at the top of my of my blog for a few days to give you a chance to comment on this. On Sunday, I’ll choose one Very Interesting Person to win my VIP award. Sound fun? Let’s give it a whirl…

So who’s going first?
