by Etude, Eloquent Entertainer.
Good morning, dear friends.
It is time for one of the male persuasion to write... and since my name starts with E and I'm full of ENERGY I have decided to ELUCIDATE on the fifth letter of the alphabet. I'm EXCITED and ECSTATIC about it. You? Of course you are! EXACTLY!
But first... let me introduce myself and ESTABLISH a few facts thus ELEVATING your knowledge of me as well as ENDEARING myself to you, our ENTHUSIASTIC, ENERVATED readers. I'm a cat... and an EDUCATED and EXQUISITE one at that.
Now, I don't want you to think I'm EGOTISTICAL. I'm not. In fact, I'm rather EASY. Not EASY as in … well, you know but EASY-going. I love to cuddle... that is.. I love to EMBRACE Grammy's arm with my fuzzy, ELONGATED paws and stare into her EYES adoringly. This is my way of ENSURING Grammy loves me ENTIRELY and usually ELICITS 'ooohs' and 'awwwws' and return snuggles. I must say, when she does this with visitors observing it can be a little EXASPERATING and my usual white and EBONY (more ELEGANT than grey, don't you think?) turns pink with EMBARASSMENT but deep down I love it!
Oh, oh, oh! I've just had an EPIPHANY about the ELEPHANT. In previous blogs animals were discussed. In this one, EVEN though there are many critters with E-names, only one is relevant to me. The ELEPHANT... an ENORMOUS mammal with a long memory. Not much more to say EXCEPT that unlike the ELEPHANT with the long memory I have an ELASTIC one that holds about ELEVEN things at a time. But, when my tummy ELOQUENTLY EXPRESSES an EMPTINESS the brain refocuses to one thing and one thing only. EATING! Yes, my whole being ENCOURAGES me to ELICIT food from Grammy.
How do I do that? I ELOCUTE at the top of my voice. I would like you to know that I learned from my sweet, gentle brother how to ENERGETICALLY EXPRESS my hunger. Rondo is a poet and the choirmaster of the sunrise chorus of birds and siblings... but uses his lungs to the utmost when he is hungry. He EMOTES ENTHUSIASTICALLY.... and it is neither EVOCATIVE nor ELOQUENT like my tummy. Not by a long shot. It is particularly nasty bordering on an EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK more like a shrEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK in the key of E flat.
But, what I've learned from him is that it ELICITS results EXPONENTIALLY so I've adopted and adapted his ESTABLISHED pattern and use it ENTHUSIASTICALLY, ESCALATING until I get results. I do it in E sharp and it works like a charm. Grammy thinks we are naughty, EGREGIOUS which means outstandingly bad, if you can believe it! We prefer the archaic meaning of that word EGREGIOUS which is 'remarkably good'.

Sorry, my EMPTY tummy was calling me. But, now that I've EATEN to EXCESS and my tummy is ENGORGED with delicious EDIBLES we can move on to the EXACT topic of the day.
Did you know that the letter E is the most frequently used letter in the ENGLISH language? A study was done by Samuel Morse (1791-1872) the inventor of the Morse Code. In short, he did it by counting the number of letters on printers' plates. I won't ELUCIDATE further on this but if you are interested it is ELOQUENTLY and EFFICIENTLY laid out in the article linked here. ENJOY! It is definitely worth the read to ENTHUSIASTS of ENGLISH.
One last statement. Well, three statements. I do not ELABORATE and EMBELLISH things. EVERY word in this blog is ENTIRELY true. Not one scintilla of EXAGGERATION here.
Comments are welcome. Let's make them ENTERTAINING. ... EXIT stage right. --->
