tongue-twisters for the letter b

like i said earlier, i like to make up tongue-twisters. earlier, i posted some for the letter a (and some of you added some fun ones too). jacob added two of my favorite ones (peggy bupkiss, and notebook), but he didn't really follow the rules. jacob, that was supposed to be tongue-twisters for a. as in, words starting with a. but anyways, those were really good.

here are some tongue-twisters for b. i'm making them up right now:

boney bonnie boxed her brother's bear

bob and beverly brought beatrice a beautiful bouquet of begonias (say THAT 10 times fast!)

now, as you know, you are invited to add your own tongue-twisters. but not for "a" -- for "b". as in, words that start will the letter b, jacob!


hey, we were just cleaning up the dishes from eating dinner, when my dad put the leftover bread in the bread bag (it's a bag we have for keeping bread). we might it might be a hard "b" tongue twister, so we tried it. and, "bread bag" is REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY (etc) hard to say a bunch of times fast. try it!


i just realized i never talked about my family. i DO have one -- i'm not an orphan (i've got orphans on my mind, though, because i'm reading all the lemony snicket book -- that you may not have heard of, but you've probably heard of the movie).

i have three family members. my dad, marko (and you probably know him), my mom, jeannie, and my annoying sister, liesl.

my dad is probably the coolest dad in the whole entire world. and he didn't make me write that. i'm going to go to st. louis with my dad in a few days. my dad will be speaking to a couple thousands junior high kids, while i am backstage fooling around with all the candy that they put out there for the crew.

my mom, on the other hand, is the one who reads me the lemony snicket books. we're on book #6, the ersatz elevator. a couple days ago, my sister and dad were gone, and i camped out on the couch -- overnight -- with my mom. it was fun. it's a big couch, a sectional one.

my sister, liesl, is 13. and if you have an older sister, than you probably realize how frustrating it is to have a 13 year old sister. we used to get along really well. but now, since she's a teenager, we still get along, but we get mad at each other easily, and don't hang out as much.

that's my family. i love them. we're going to new zealand in a few weeks, and i'm sure it's gonna be really fun - if my sister's not too snotty!
