What’s the Answer



Mother thought she was the queen of crossword puzzles probably because she played them every chance she got.

Personally, I think she was obsessed with them and I knew father was much better at them than her.

She was always asking us what do you think they mean by this, what do you think they mean by that, do you think this is a good answer for wafer? Father replied, biscuit fits but so would cookies.

Father and I would get so sick of asking, asking, asking all the time that one day we hid the newspaper and all her crossword books.

This was written for the Three Things Challenge.  Use crossword, father, and wafer creatively.

  1. I smile as I read. My mother too was a crossword addict, though she took pride in completing all by herself.
    I confess to having caught the habit, though I’m not a fanatic. I keep a book of them in the bathroom.
