It is #EnigMarch, and each day the excellent EnigMarch people post a prompt word; then puzzle nerds try to design puzzles around that word. (Today's word is surprise.)

There is one suprise in each sequence below. I sure hope you can turn each surprise into a letter.

one, one, two, six, twentyfour, one, …

six, twentyeight, three, eightthousonehundredandtwentyeight, …

zero, one, three, six, ten, fifteen, one, …

two, three, five, seven, two, thirteen, seventeen, …

zero, one, four, nine, sixteen, eight, …

three, one, four, one, five, four, two, six, …

one, one, two, three, five, eight, four, …

one, two, four, eight, one, thirtytwo, …

When you found what you're looking for, those surprise-derived letters should spell out what you were looking for.
