When I think of the word Cluster I think of 2 things...

Grapes and Cluster F@ck. Please Anita, don't pass this word along to your son. I don't want an angry call from a Kiwi teacher in the middle of the night.

I really miss grapes. We can find them in Egypt, but they're either gross or ridiculously expensive. I miss the good ole days of going into a Publix and always finding beautiful, crisp produce all year long. Those grapes in the picture... that amazing cluster of tart, sweet deliciousness.  Sighhhhh, my mouth is watering at the prospect. I'd be very lucky to get some of those right now. Don't think it's going to happen! But hey if you need some tomatoes or oranges, I got you covered in Egypt. Wanna trade? My cluster for yours?

Almost forgot! Tomorrow is the letter D! My word is 11 letters and starts with DE.  This was one of the words I picked that I'd never heard before. Can you guess it?
