I think you all deserve another fairly easy one this week, don’t you? And I’m sure you’ll agree that it is easy (quiet at the back there – grumble in your own time!), at least when compared to some of my little Macro Monday puzzles.
I feel fairly confident in saying that you’ll all have one of these somewhere about the place – perhaps not the same as this one, but something which does the same job and which is basically the same. Well, when I say ‘the same’, there are many differences and variations, and to emphasise this, I’ll tell you that I really don’t like this one at all, and so I usually choose to use a quite different one.
OH and I have several of these things. Some people (probably most people) only have one, so if something goes wrong with it, they’re stuck – unless they can borrow one. But then .. if the person you want to borrow one from only has one themselves, they’re unlikely to lend it to you. But actually, I think we have two in our house which are borrowed.
Confused yet? Oh good!
One more thing, which might help you. They do wear out. I seem to wear mine out particularly quickly, but I have no idea how or why, since I use them just the same as anyone else. It’s a mystery.
As usual, I’ll post the answer in the form of a picture link, and add it to the bottom of this post on Tuesday evening, UK time. And unless you’re all completely lost, I won’t be answering the comments until then either, but when I do, I’ll answer any questions you may have.
Okay? Off you jolly well go!
Well, look at that! Well done … um … pretty nearly all of you! For those few who didn’t get it, go here to see what this week’s puzzle solution is!
Congratulations to Shooting Parrots, the first in there with the right answer, closely followed by Silverback (who very cleverly sent me a picture link by IM so as not to spoil things completely for the others) and Don’t Bug Me, who were then followed by lots and lots of other correct guesses, most of whom even got the brand right!
Babsie, my dear, I do hope you have some good recipes for making that hat taste good. Tee hee!
Thanks for taking part again, everyone – and gird those loins for next week, because I’m going to do my level best to make it a really, really difficult one.
