A's anatomy - The Letter A






COMING UP NEXT: the hit alphabet show of the season, A’s anatomy.
Now observe lowly medical students… I, Doctor Grover, alphabet specialist, will teach you everything there is to know about alphabet medicine. AH! AH! WHAT IS THAT? WHAT IS THAT?
Eeeeehm… It’s an ambulance Doctor Grover.
Of course, an ambulance.
ALPHABET  EMERGENCY! ALPHABET  EMERGENCY! Is this the Alphabet Memorial Hospital?
Yes, and I - Doctor Grover - am the alphabet specialist… 
What seems to be the problem?
It’s the letter A.
Well, this does not look like the letter A.
I had an ACCIDENT!   ACCIDENT begins with the letter A!    A… A… ACCIDENT.
Yes, I know… I am an alphabet specialist.  What happened to you letter A?
An AMATEUR ACROBAT was eating an APPLE while doing an ARABESQUE and she ACCIDENTALLY landed on me.
How AWFUL!  How ABOMINABLE!
Can you make me all better Doctor Grover?
ABSOLUTELY! I am an alphabet specialist. Do not worry letter A. I, Doctor Grover, will put you back together again. Observe and learn, lowly medical students.
First I’ll check the ABDOMEN, the ADENOIDS and the ALVEOLUS.
Hmm Hmm… Hmm Hmm… Everything looks A-OK to me… UH-HUH, here is the problem…
ANVIL…    anvil…    anvil…
ADHESIVE TAPE…    adhesive tape…    adhesive tape…
ARTICHOKE…    artichoke…    artichoke…
Hmm… APPETIZING… uh-huh… here we are: the letter A good as new!
Well I don’t feel at all like myself!
That’s not the letter A Doctor Grover!
Of course it… … IS NOT? I just wanted to see if you’ve been paying attention.
ATTENTION starts with the letter A!      A… A… ATTENTION.
Yes, I know… I am an alphabet specialist.
ALPHABET  starts with the letter A!
Yes, I know… A… A… ALPHABET...
Has anyone ever told you   you’re ANNOYING?
ANNOYING  starts with the letter A!      A… A… ANNOYING 
Hmm… Now watch while I assemble the letter A…
ASSEMBLE  starts with the letter
ANTISEPTIC…    antiseptic…    antiseptic…
ALPENHORN…    alpenhorn…    alpenhorn…
At last the letter A!
I’m still feeling a little out of alignment… You know, I’m very fussy about my APPEARANCE…
That still doesn’t look like the letter A Doctor Grover…
Hmm… Something does seem to be AMISS… Bring in the letter A skeleton…
UH… THE LETTER A SKELETON…
Is this it Doctor?
Yes, thank you… Now, let us study the A’s anatomy to see how it is put together… as you can see… lowly students, the A has a line going this way at an ANGLE, and another line over here, going at an angle, and another cute little line, in the middle…
Like this doctor Grover?
Yes that is right. THE SURGERY WAS A SUCCESS AFTER ALL!
I’m all better… I feel like my old self again… Now I can go start words like ACTOR, and ASTRONAUT, and AGGLUTINATION… well, ADIOS!
Goodbye! One day you too will become alphabet specialists like myself… No need to thank me… I am first and foremost a teacher… Anyone know what AGGLUTINATION means?
