Now what you need to do is take all these words and write it up Dr. Suess Style.  Clever and thoughtful.  It makes us think about all the things we do.

Entertaining post, how do you find the time?  I do have to tell you that you forgot one very important "D" and that is DIVA.  Not you or me, but I have come across several that would fit in that category.
