My Favorite Words that Rhyme with Survey - By Angelica Wedell - My favorite words that rhyme with “survey” Often line up with a workday. Some web meetings call for hairspray Especially if it’s a Monday. Certainly no time for horseplay, Until Friday, well then, Okay! Anyway Now days when I take a survey I read it from my phone display. Convenience is a true mainstay Of connecting with most folks two-way. And that’s what all the experts say. I’m thinking of my friends today At ELGL, NLC, and ICMA. Whenever COVID is way passé I’d love to meet again someday. Until then I want to say Have a happy happy holiday!
