Nice teaser. I got it only because the last one I read had to do with numbers. That's a cool approach though!

Good teaser but I think you would be better adding a hint.

There is another answer. Using the first letter of each word, you get E,S,R,U,F,E,S. After F, it appears to repeat. So you could say that the next word would be rhapsody because that starts with an R, as the order goes.
