One of the earliest HW posts was for the letter P. Since then, I've shied away from letters-as-homophones. For no good reason. Something about "illustrating" the letter feels like a cop-out to me, but I suppose it's perfectly valid and I should just get over it.
So it's time to embrace the cop-out! Try this one on for size – the ultimate pictographic shortcut!
And now that that's over, we can get on with the other letter homophones in dew thyme.
