Meditation 2.23.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle

A pen and ink doodle meditation in blues and oranges and a blurb about kangaroo words.
Dear Henry,

Today, I heard about a wordplay game that sounds like a fun alternative to Scrabble.

Kangaroo words are words that contain their synonym inside them.  Finding these words and their respective inner synonym has been a game for many years and was popularized back in "American Magazine" back in the 1950s by Ben Odell.

I feel very misinformed, until today, I had never heard of such a game and have now started scouring the internet, looking for these words.

So far, the kangaroo words I have come across are:

Catacomb -----> Tomb
Chicken   ------> Hen
Observe   ------> See
Blossom  ------> Bloom
Hear        ------> Ear
Masculine -----> Male

I have just started my search and plan on adding many more words to this list, stay tuned for additions.

xoxo a.d.
