Longest last-letter sentence

You know the game where we tried to make the longest sentence and the last-letter game? Well, this is combining the two.
For example:

I will start:
Once

Re: Longest last-letter sentence

how

Once everything goes suddenly you understand how...


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Longest last-letter sentence

Bobby, I think your word should have started with "d", which is the last letter of the last word.

I wonder if there's one such word that retains MathsIsFun's "wonderful". smile

Re: Longest last-letter sentence

"submit" doesn't seem to fit, l-d (maybe your post crossed with MathsIsFun's?)...so I think I'll just continue on from "surprisingly":-
