Recently the whole FringeFamily was in the car and my son attempted to play hangman with my daughter.  Slightly dazed and confused, my daughter wasn’t getting the concept of just guessing letters – any letters.

Impatiently FringeBoy prodded, telling her to “Just pick random letters!”

With all seriousness and bit of disappointment, my daughter looked at my son and said “I haven’t learned those letters yet.”

The Random Alphabet according to FringeKid


Incase you’re upset thinking I forgot about Earth Day, please know that I have a plastic reusable grocery bag full of Diet Coke cans waiting to go back to the store for recycling.  Don’t forget I’ve made a commitment to be green in 2009



  1. I think the random alphabet has been around for years…you should see some of the spelling that comes out of my work place!

  2. The Random Alphabet! I can’t wait! LOL!

    The FingeKids are so cute. They slay me. Poor little Fringekid will be learning all sorts of random things soon enough. I spent the night learning about “techtonic ocean plates” so I could help Kevin with a oceonography assignment that takes place on an imaginary planet. Yes. I just wrote that. I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

  5. the alphabet is overrated, isn’t it? He does look impressed, i have a few pics like that too!

  6. AH! And he’s not looking too impressed either.

  7. Stories like this make me excited for when mine are older and actually interact. Right now Eli is sword fighting Cora Jane… but she doesn’t realize it!

  8. Awww, that’s sweet!

    I’ve noticed that the teens these days use the word “random” a lot. I guess it’s kind of a fad word. For instance, random people means people they don’t know. Or they’ll say, “That was random,” if someone changes the subject abruptly.

    The picture is wonderful!

  9. Random alphabet … love it.

  10. aren’t kids the best? They say the funniest things. :)

    Go green!

  11. Crackin’ me up. Not just the hangman story, but your desire to get on your son’s bad side with the argyle. Good job! ~Mindy

  12. You girl is hilarious, because of the comment and because of the photo. A great one haha!!

    That forlorn look on FringeBoy’s face is due to that outfit I made him wear for Easter.

    He’ll be scarred for life, but I feel it’s my job as his mother to give him something to complain about every now and then.

  14. I didn’t have time to comment before going to bed last night but the forlorn look on FringeBoy’s face and the headline “Hangman” weaved through my dreams all night…and not in a good way.

  15. That is such a funny picture!!

  16. I’m impressed that Fringeboy know what the word ‘random’ means!

  17. Funny, can’t wait for that alphabet post, been wondering ’bout those random letters.

    Being green, should I be concerned with that?

  18. I’m impressed he used the word random! Please don’t give me any more letters to learn…I’m still having trouble with ones used in texting.

  19. Poor Fringegirl. She will learn them soon enough.
