    1. my VI answer should have been 11 instead of the 6. I should have phrased the question about Count Rugen's right hand to get 6 as the answer but I'll just leave it.

    1. VI - you never saw The Princess Bride? guess you would not know the answer then. Count Rugen has six fingers on his right hand

      VII - Seven Ate Nine - that was a phrase I heard about numbers- you know 'eight' sounds like 'ate'?

      VIII - not a trick question. in fact, the answer doesn't even matter, you can answer any way you like, after all, these questions are really just for fun, so no penalty if you're wrong

      have a lovely day.

  6. I think I'm too tired to scroll up and down to see all the questions so here are the ones I remember. First is on second, The Princess Bride guy has 11 fingers, 4 things:laptop, cluttered coffee table, books, dogs; 7 apples are left, seven ate nine before nine ate seven. too many dirty dishes (it's the end of a very busy week and I haven't done them this week).

  9. Okay, I'll play!

    I. A meeting in an office.

    II. No, Who is on third!

    III. Hubby changing TV channels during commercials. Someone staring at their cell phone while we are talking in person. Extremely long descriptions!

    IV. Our little Bonnie dog. My coffee cup. A mounted deer head. Hubby's boots.

    V. My daughter! Strange expressions, reactions by animals. The Big Bang Theory. God's sense of humor.

    VI. I don't remember movie or book details or people's names!

    VII. Seven is not going home. The police are coming to take him away.

    VIII. That depends. Did the one I ate come from the basket? And if so, did you count them before or after I ate one?

    IX. I don't have too many of anything. Hubby has too many of things enough for us both!

    X. The two that are holding my cigarette.

    I enjoyed this!

    You like lists, do you not?
