A is for ...


Alliteration is like a long leg that allows you to slide safely into home plate.

Assonance is the angry reaction of the fans as the ump stabs the air and shouts, “You're out!”

  7. I have longs legs but I just used to run over the catcher and knock the ball out of his hands. I always got called "safe." I was not "safe," however, when an angry Daddy came after me with a bat in the dugout! Thanks for the fun and memories, Muse. You're the best!
