I am reading a book by Michael Phillips that he revised from a George McDonald book. "The Poet's Homecoming." As I read it, I am reminded of Grace Livingston Hill's writings and wonder if she read George McDonald books as she learned to write.
Anyway, there is a chapter (3) called Flutterbies which deal with several words said backwards and is interesting.
Then, today we were working on the room out back and a butterfly kept fluttering by. And I thought, Why don't we call them flutterbies instead of butterflies?
