I’ve always been fascinated by tricks with words, whether they’re telegrams with no ‘e’ or 30-word shorts.I think Haikus attract me for the same reason.

Here is a short note in incrementing lines that I wrote to a colleague when I left my computer for a bite to eat (well, I’m not in an office so I can’t say Tararabit, now can I?):

I
am
not
here
while
eating
healthy
proteins
alongside
additional
brilliantly
nuttylicious
replenishment

That’s 13 letters at the end, right?
Anyone know a 14-letter addition I could have made?
