… But what is it?
I keep trying to find you easy ones, I really do! To me this is so obvious, it’s hardly worth posting, but I’m sure some of you have never seen one, so maybe it’ll fox you. Anyway, after last week’s Macro Monday puzzle which addled almost everyone’s brains, I thought something simple might work.
So. Here you are.
Clues? Well, not every home will have one, some will have more than one. Some will not see the need for one, others will border on panic if they don’t have one. They’re very useful, and needless to say, ours is a home which has one or two.
They don’t have to be blue. They come in a wide variety of colours, and even some cute patterns. What else? Hmm… well, I can tell you that these things weren’t around when I was a kid! Similar things, yes, but not the same.
There. I’m sure half of you are bouncing in your seats, waving your hands in the air and saying ‘Miss, I know, Miss!’ … or perhaps not. That WAS when I was a kid, huh?
Off you go, now. Answers in the comments as usual, please. Stop talking at the back there – and you! I hope you have enough of those sweets to go around the whole class? No? Well put them away then, or they’ll be confiscated. Yum!
I’ll be back tomorrow evening (Tuesday, UK time) to add the answer in the form of a picture link. Meanwhile, have fun!
And no running in the corridors!
Yoo hoo! Here I am! Better late than never, huh? Once again, I got caught up in something and didn’t get back in here last night, so apologies to all who were banging on the door demanding to be put out of their misery!
Here is the answer to this most unexpectedly puzzling puzzle. And because I fear that the original answer picture I took (the same shot that I cropped the puzzle from) will not explain itself to some of you, here is an alternative view.
Now. I am sorry to have to tell you that not one of you guessed this one correctly! The only person to do so was a Facebook friend who posted her guess on my link to this post! I can’t even think of one of you who got almost there – or even simply closer than the others. However, I do rather like Shooting Parrots’ answer, because the idea that this could function as a toilet roll is hilarious!
Ah well. Perhaps if I try to post a really difficult puzzle next week, you’ll all get it right. We will see.
Thanks for playing! I do prefer it when about half of you guess the answer, but it’s been fun anyway!
