Acronym

Hello fam'! I had an idea of something fun for our little blog here. Since games are so much a part of our family culture I thought it might be fun to play a game here.

It is simply called (for now until a clever name is thunk up) 'Acronym'. Play starts with the final word of this post. The first person to comment makes up an acronym for the word and puts it in the comment. Then they leave a word for the next commenter to 'acronymize'. And play goes until I close the comments. No winners. No losers. Just plain fun. Oh, and the acronym doesn't have to have anything to do with the start word.

Example:

(start word)
FAMILY

(acronym)
For
A
Most
Intriguing
Laugh
Yodel

(new start word)
Whiplash

Any questions? Good. Then let's have some fun!

Start word:

BEACH

Good one Dad!
