There. That’s your Macro Monday puzzle for today.
This is something most households have, especially those with .. um .. industrious family members who like a hobby which produces something useful. Of course, some will use one of these things out of necessity, as my own mother did when we were young.
Me, I use them mainly for my hobbies these days – and yes, I have several, though most houses will have just the one. Even so, I can never find one when I need it! This one was upstairs with my jewellery-making stuff. Of course it was!
So, if you do have one in your house, will it look just like this? Well, no, probably not, but many do. Some are bigger and a lot simpler, and I’ve seen some smaller, but not often. Mine are about as small as you can get while still remaining useful and functional, and robust enough not to break or be difficult to use.
Colour? I have to confess, most are white, off-white, or yellow and most have no plastic casing on them, though they may be plastic coated. I’ve seen some of the usual type which are pale blue or pink, but that’s not common. I’d say they’re usually either white or nearly so.
Size? Most of the ones in ordinary households are quite small and pack away to about an inch or so by half an inch. I have seen some big enough to need two hands to operate, but mostly those are for outdoor or professional use. Actually, thinking about it, you need two hands to use them anyway, but … well, you’ll see what I mean when you get the answer!
Mwahahaha! No help there, then!
Pop your answers in the comments, and I’ll be back tomorrow evening (Tues, UK time) to give you the answer to this hopefully intriguing puzzle. Till then, have fun!
YAY! We have a winner! Yep, one, single winner. Congratulations to Jeni of Jeni’s Dollz! Well done me ol’ shipmate. I suppose I might have known that you’d get it!
The answer, for all of the rest of you, is here. Yes, that was a tough one, wasn’t it? But you’ve had a couple of easy ones lately, so it was time for this!
Join me next week and see what I have for you. Will it be easy peasy, or as tough as your new DVD instruction manual? You’ll have to wait and see!
