    Pure chance but the first one I’ve got this quickly!

  9. Sally, thank you, these puzzles are so fun!

    The headline took me in a different direction — I was thinking of a different queer thing with a single reason. Hehe. Loved the answer when I worked it out! :)

  10. I guess I haven’t had one in way too long !
