My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

More words....

Sorry Teresa - more word puzzles today (Maybe the handy dandy discount MENSA calendar is stuck...) : )

Since blogger was having so many issues yesterday and I didn't get to post, and because it's Friday and I know you want to speed the day along to get to your weekend be most productive. We'll have a twofer and really get the braincells hoppin.'

Ready?? Here we go....


Missing letter word scramble:

Unscramble the letters below, then find the missing letter that completes each word. (The missing letter, indicated by the question mark, is the same for each word.)
  • E V I A ?
  • N G I R ?
  • I T R E ?
  • G I N ?


What do the following words having in common? (The similarity has nothing to do with the number of letters, vowels, consonants, or syllables.)



Okay, you know how this works... The answers will be found later in the comments and Smartypants Stickers awarded. Happy Friday!

Update: jvh from Showcase of a Shattered Mind gets a smartypants sticker for answering the first puzzle correctly! Whoohoo!

The answer to the second brain bender was ::drumroll:: Each word contains a three-letter word spelled backwards (PIN, CAR, CAB, NOT). Thanks for playin' everybody!
