A Word Challenge - the Thursday (Fun) Thought -

Helen's Website
See if you can figure out what these six words have in common...

1. Banana
2. Dresser
3. Grammar
4. Revive
5. Uneven
6. Assess

.
.. No, it is not that they all have at least two double letters....

Answer:
If you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word!

1. B > ananaB = Banana
2. D > resserD = Dresser
3. G > rammarG = Grammar
4. R > eviveR = Revive
5. U > nevenU = Uneven
6. A > ssessA = Assess

Good eh?

Thank you for leaving a comment - it should appear immediately, but Blogger sometimes chucks its teddies out of the cot and has a tantrum (especially if you are a Wordpress person) If you are having problems, contact me on author@helenhollick.net and I will post it for you.
However, SPAMMERS will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam my blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that I DID warn you...
