Hannah, Ava, Izzi, and Eve are attending the Ailihphilia Society, its tenet; to further the use of reversible words and sentences.

Today they are discussing whether the word for a palindrome should itself be a palindrome.

They decide to hold a ballot.

“Rise to vote sir”, says Pip to Bob, don’t nod”.

“Wow”, shouts French Élle, “top spot … non!”

*I italicized the palindromes to make them easier to spot!

In case you are wondering, ailihphilia is an old English word for an interest in palindromes!

    Wow, your mini saga’s level is awesome. Thank you for putting the palindrome’s tenet on my radar, Keith.

    Until now, I hadn’t given much thought to the magic of palindromes. But the cleverness of this palindromist sent me to reading in rabbit holes. However, I must use caution because palindromia is the recurrence of a disease. More fun from Keith. 🙂

    sorry Keith but today, January 1st, my brain isn’t working very well, too much celebration last night but I am confident it’s extremely clever as always 🙂
