Where “I” Resides September 20, 2013

IMGP3740aStartling as it might seem, I’m

starting to see strange patterns

staring me in the face.  A

string of confusion with a

sting all its own.  We

sing out, abandon

sin, and go with

in.  Where

I resides.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Inspiration:  One Word Riddle (e-mail from Granny1947)

The e-mail Granny sent me claimed that “STARTLING” was the only 9-letter word in the English language that could be transformed by removing one letter at a time . . . with each intervening word being a word in the English language:

Startling -> Starting -> Staring -> String -> Sting -> Sing -> Sin -> In -> I

Can you come up with a different 9-letter word (or an even longer word) that works the same way?
