Win a Book -- Today Only!

The kind of humor I like is the thing that makes me laugh for five seconds and think for ten minutes. ~William Davis

Yesterday my DD made up a joke, and Judy thought is was so good that she suggested I post it on here and see if any of y'all can get the right answer. The one who DOES will win their choice of book from the LASR Library thing (whose site appears to be down as I write this -- hopefully it'll come up soon).

I'm going to moderate comments for today only (though I will release ones that don't have a guess), so you can leave your guess here and I'll hold them until tomorrow morning. Everyone who gets the right answer gets a book, BTW. If no one does, I'll have DD choose a name randomly.

Here's the riddle (riddle me this...):

"What's gray and stuck on an envelope?"

Okay, put on your thinking caps and comment -- feel free to comment more than once if you have a brainstorm.

:-)

==============================

In other news, it appears I may be catching DD's bug. I woke up this a.m. with a wicked sore throat. I hope it's only a regular cold. Blech. I dosed myself to death with every natural remedy known to man (OJ, Echinacea, oregano oil, vitamin C, Cranberry extract, zinc...) and have my fingers crossed.

==============================

I worked on a short story yesterday. I really want to submit something every month, and I haven't yet this month, so decided to get off my duff and get something ready to send in. Luckily, I typically have 10 - 15 short stories started and then stuck in a file, so I always have something I can work on!

And, no, I'm not stopping work on my fantasy. I love it too much!

Test of the element
Your Result: Fire

You are most likely one of those, that loves to imagine things. Fantasy and imagination, are the basic description for anyone who is of the element fire. You most likely have positive energies, and you are not too logical in some cases. You are very creative, and you are good at solving difficult situations.


Hope you feel well soon!

I have a few short story ideas too. If I ever catch up on all my full length projects maybe I'll work on one!

Hope you feel better! Cute joke...I'll have to muse on it awhile...

Dru said...

that's a hard riddle...and I'm sure the answer will be so easy and simple. The only thing I can think of are "words".

That's great about submitting short stories.

I hope you're feeling better.

re quiz: Air

Have a good Tuesday.

Hope you are not coming down with anything. Air doesn't sound like you exactly. I will have to think about the joke. Very clever.

Did you get the new submission thing I sent?

Hope you beat the germs! Feel better soon, okay? Sending big hugs!

Sarita Leone said...

That riddle's got me stumped.

Fingerprints? Germs? The postmark? Glue?

I know, I know...I need coffee.

You've got a wonderfully clever kid! :-) Glad she's feeling well enough to riddle!

Amy said...

Oh, no! I hope you beat whatever this bug is because it is NASTY. I STILL have a sore throat (well into week TWO).

Take care.

Diane Craver said...

Sorry you aren't feeling well.

BTW, I have one of your books listed for a prize in my new contest!
