Jumble Spoiler – 10/29/19

capital letters

Visual Description:  Capital letters and kid stuff.


Clue/Question:  Debuting centuries ago, the fourth letter of the alphabet was now an – – –

(A CAPITAL idea!  A fine stinky pun.  At first – and second – glance I had no idea where this was heading.  I thought I was going to have to put this out there for you guys to solve.  But, I realized that because of the clue/question ending in AN, that the first word of the answer had to start with a vowel.  There were no H’s.  And, with the third word needing to be A, that meant that the first word likely started with an O.  I was going with probabilities.

None of today’s clue words came up as new.  Although all of the jumbles appear to be new.  I had the most difficulty with “omega”.  It was the last jumble I solved.  The answer letter layout was a very ambitious thirteen letter jumble.  Maybe all the D’s together helped me along some, but I don’t think they posed any kind of giveaway.

Fun cartoon of animated letters.  Is the female letter supposed to be a D too?  Puts me in mind some of this ‘raindrop’ vs ‘waterfall’ texting debate.  When I heard/read that raindroppers consider waterfallers to be “stern or serious” I just SMH.  To me, expressing an idea in a single paragraph is more efficient, and more polite, than sending four, five, six little texts in a row.  I’d rather my phone ping once, than four or five additional/needless times.  It’s also annoying, when you start replying to the first text, and then one or more texts keep arriving.  When you send a bunch of these ‘raindrop’ texts how is the recipient supposed to know when you’ve completed your thought?  There is nothing stern, or serious, and certainly not rude, about sending a complete paragraph.  If anything it’s much more polite, and concise, than having to wait for a slew of brief and disjointed little blurbs.  Of course, this paragraph I just wrote is too long to be a single text, but this is an entirely different format from texting.  The funny thing is, before this issue kind of came up in the media, my daughter used to send what I consider normal texts.  Now, they’re more and more ‘raindrop’.  I guess at age 28 she’s afraid of being considered old!  What a world!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
