Here’s a thought exercise you can use to pass time while you’re joggling, driving in the car or otherwise engaged in something requiring little mental activity.
I have this friend who has the interesting habit of alphabetizing any word she hears. You can tell her a word and she’ll spell it back for you with the letters in alphabetical order. It’s quite a skill. This is an amusing enough thing to do but try this twist.
Mind Letter Game
Starting with a 2 letter word, come up with words in which the letters are in alphabetical order. I’ve been able to get a 6-letter word but not 7 or higher. Can you?
2 letter word = IT
3 letter word = BET
4 letter word = ACES
5 letter word = CHINS
6 letter word = ACCENT
