    Hello, sinewave85!

    Didn't get 29, 32, 38, or 43 -- but I bet someone else will.
    And you'll kick yourself when you see the answers.

    Ok, dutifully kicking myself over numbers 32 and 43. But number 38 I had never hear of before -- had to Google that one even with the answer. Clever, clever, clever. It makes me feel better that there is one that masters did not get as well. We will see if you manage to stump everyone with number 29, Soroban. Thanks for the fun puzzle -- it was a nice break from banging my head on my Calculus book.

    Good job, you two . . . and thank you for your support.




    The usual answer for #34 is: coffee, tea, or milk
    (traditionally offered by stewardesses ... sorry, flight attendants.)


    42. bothered
    Spoiler:
    Bewitched, bothered & bewildered (song title)



    29. spindle
    Spoiler:
    (Do not) fold, spindle, or mutilate

    Oh, ok, I kind of worried I was fudging it on #42. And #29 was certainly a blast from the past -- I asked my dad if he had ever heard the expression, and he started laughing.
