I am not able to patiently wait in the car, or anywhere else for that matter, without keeping my mind busy. We keep a book of crossword puzzles tucked in the pouch back of the driver's seat for the times hubby feels like roaming the monotonous aisles at Menard's or making a few casts at a trout stream.
The crossword clue was "make a lap" for a 3-letter word.
That wasn't going to work because the last letter was a t. What in the world...a 3-letter word ending in t, that means to make a lap.
Once again our English language tripped me up on such an elementary clue. The correct answer was "sit." We make a lap when we sit.
One sentence = two thoughts.
"I am going to make a lap."
Should I run?
or should I sit?
Silly, isn't it?
