How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.”   —   Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

(I know what she means, but it still sounds kind of funny.  As though being a thing was somehow more important – to some – than being a person.  Anyone can be a lump on a couch . . . or in front of a computer.  That is more being a thing.  To really be someone takes much more caring than to be something.)   —   YUR

Clue/Question:  When he brought home cucumbers instead of zucchini, he was this.

Answer:  IN A PICKLE

(You just can’t trust some guys to perform simple tasks!  I think with some people it’s a ploy.  They figure if they do a bad enough job – at something they probably didn’t want to do anyway –  they won’t be asked to do it in the future.  Pretty sneaky.  I’m guessing it works best with loved ones, though.  I wouldn’t recommend trying this at one’s place of employment.  Especially in this job market!

Good clue words . . . nicely scrambled.  I must be developing some kind of Jumble-vision, because I just saw every unscrambled word, without even having to give them any thought.  Nothing obvious in the way the answer letters were arranged, which is good.  I guess you just have to be good with idioms.  And, it also helps to know that “pickles” are marinated/preserved/brined cucumbers.  I’ve never been a fan of pickles, although I do like pickled peppers.  I guess I’m just a sucker for alliteration!  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR
