Liked the idea but found the sentences too far removed from an actual description to be useful. More like riddles, even

Thanks

I'm not sure what you mean. The sentences aren't meant to be a description. Did you read the instructions? Maybe they aren't clear.

"Cooled" doesn't work for me, I had to type "OE." This series must take an insane amount of creativity. Well done!

"Calumnies" could also work for lies. And "Jocundity" could work for "joy."

Hello overtired,

my grandmother used that word "overtired." Thank you for reminding me; she has passed. I want to thank you for these quizzes. Will you please make some more to add to fhe series?
