Ever notice that “sauce” & “cause” use the same letters?
No, anagram has nothing to do with preparing for a colonoscopy.
An anagram is when the same exact letters of one word are rearranged to form one or more different words.
I happen to love all word games…Words With Friends, Scrabble, Word Blitz, Boggle, Word Find, etc…even though I only TIED for 1st place (with 2 others, Madeline LaLima & someone I can’t remember) in the 3rd grade spelling bee when none of us could spell “pigeon” correctly in the final round!!!!
BTW, “Pidgeon” is the actor Walter & no matter how many times you say “p-I-g-I-o-n” or “p-I-d-g-I-o-n”, it’ll always be wrong every time!
So very embarrassing & humiliating!
My personal favorite anagram is “medical”…declaim, decimal, claimed, camelid.
BTW, “maliced” is not a word & “Alice, MD” is a bit sketchy.
And, don’t forget, you need to use ALL the letters.
