After two days of playing “Spaghetti” on my Facebook page, I became convinced that my word-loving friends can perform miracles with any given set of words. My certainty was absolute and unshakable… until I generated today’s word list. Suddenly this once again seemed like a crazy idea. These random words have something in common? These random words can form the basis of a puzzle, which can lead to a logical answer? Well, I guess we shall see.
Ladies and gentlemen, your words are…
See if you can figure out something these words have in common. (Note: The “these are all words in the English language” joke has officially been done.) Or if you want to really go for the gusto, consider these five words a puzzle that you have to solve. Can’t be done, you say? I’m not going to disagree. But did you read my introduction to the game yesterday? There was some genuine word-based magic the first couple of times we played this. Maybe it’ll happen again. Who knows?
Anyway, even if you can’t come up with anything, keep your eye on the comments page. Press Like on the comments that you feel do the best job of working with these words. We shall give due applause to the winner tomorrow. Assuming there is a winner.
Here’s a recipe for Whole Wheat and Molasses Quick Bread.
