I thought I’d give you a nice easy puzzle for Macro Monday today!
This is something … hmm.Â Well, I was going to say that everyone would be familiar with them, but then I wondered if that was actually true.Â Certainly in the Western World they are well known.
I don’t know what clues to give you, because so many things I could say would give the game away toot sweet, so let me think a minute.
Yeah … well.Â Okay, here we go:
The things that you can do with these things vary a bit, but are quite limited.Â And they won’t last you a lifetime, that’s for sure.
Some people like them, some people love them, some people really don’t care for them at all.
They are a little temperature and humidity dependent, and rather fragile, and this can put their price up.Â Of course, this doesn’t always matter to those who can .. um .. ‘produce’ their own and don’t have to go and buy them!
For those who do love them, they bring joy, albeit of a short-lived nature.Â Still, as with everything else, if the joy weren’t temporary, it would become commonplace and lose its value, would it not?
Now you have all the clues I’m willing to give you.Â Take your best shot, and post it in the comments. If you pop back tomorrow evening (that’s Tuesday, UK time), I’ll add the answer, in the form of a picture link, to the end of this post.
And there you go! A nice easy one, but not so easy that everyone got it right! Excellent!
So, here is the answer, and you will see that Emma was the first to answer and the first to guess correctly! Well done, Emma – shame you don’t have a blog, really, so I can’t give you a link-back!
Next up came Taffy’s Mum, also without a blog! And then we have Lori, Rob Lenihan and Liz, followed by Babs, Houndstooth, Dew Drops and Birgitta. Very well spotted all of you. Give yourselves a pat on the back!
I hope you enjoyed playing this week. Pop along next Macro Monday and have another go!
