Visual Description:  Dopey hubby and his disappointed and demanding wifey.


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

    Ha! Do the job poorly so that you do not have to do it again? I’ve done that! For me it was painting my house and cooking breakfast. A fellow teacher was being too strict in cafeteria duty, so they didn’t make him do it again for 5 years! I think there is some irony in that! As for the puzzle, very easy but fun! And I just love all kinds of pickles, espcially butter chips and baby gerkins!
