One of my favourite games as a child was PANT: Places, Animals, Names and Things, a rather pointless but nerdy game where the quiz master (who was more often than not, my mother who would be distractedly attending to something else in the house) would randomly call out a letter. Each of the participants (who were more often than not my less-than-willing cousins who would rather be doing something less nerdy) would then list down all the places, animals, names and things we could think of beginning with that letter. And I of course, being the one who was constantly taunted for reading the encyclopedia “for fun”, would win ALL the games.
Hence a passion for alliterations and grouping random things according to common letters was borne.
