L for lovely things

Some letters are just blessed more than others. Take the letter L, for instance.

It is richly endowed with a vocabulary of niceties that other alphabets cannot even dare to dream of: love, life, laughter, like, luck... probably even more that I don't recall.

And why so, while other alphabets suffer the lack of noble or interesting words such that people are prone to forget them far too easily, as opposed to the lovely letter L?

But then, you may argue that the letter L has shortcomings of its own.

Lies. Lust. Litter. Lost.

Yes yes, but which other alphabet can trump "L for love"?

R for romance, perhaps. Or F for faithful.

But that doesn't quite cut it, does it?

What do think, then, about the bad press that F receives undeservedly?

Fight. Fat. Fool. Frumpy. Frugal. 

Don't you sometimes get the Feeling that Life is a Little unFair?

Life, I think, is what we make it. It's how we handle "unfair" and unfortunate situations that determine how our lives will end up being. At test of things, if you will. :)
