Voting took a big dive yesterday, which I think reflects my newfound view that this game is best played in small doses. Nonetheless, go and look at the entries from Dan Katz and Ucaoimhu (I have to look up how to spell that every single time). Both answers seem genuinely plausible. They tied on the voting, and I think that’s absolutely fine.
I promised we would play the game all this week, and despite the decreased enthusiasm, I am plunging ahead. Furthermore, I am turning the dial to 11 for this final day: SIX words, instead of five. I’ll be curious if that makes this easier or harder. You tell me.
Good luck! And thanks for a very entertaining week of wordplay.
