At first, NOTHING popped into my mind for this week's spoonful. But then, eureka! I reflected that THING is the least descriptive noun in the English language. I decided to challenge YOU, my readers, to banish THING in any of its forms from the following sentences (and from all your writing). If you dare, please share your creative, descriptive replacement sentences in the comments section!
1.) Eek! It's a THING!
2.) I can't wait to hear about the THING you saw last night.
3.) What a remarkable THING that is.
4.) Please bring SOMETHING, ANYTHING to make this party fun.
5.) Let me describe this animal to you. It's a THING!
6.) John brought chairs, blankets, and THINGS to the beach.
Have oodles of fun with this! My next Spoonful of Grammar will be about SOMETHING else, I promise you.
