  5. Did you ever read Enid Blyton’s books about the Enchanted Forest, Ms D. There is a school featured and it is run by Dame Slap. She schools all the naughty pixies, brownies and fairies. She write nonsensical questions and when they can’t answer, she slaps them. These questions reminded me of this. Hahaha.

    Burt! It’s the one answer I could easily blurt at 3:30 in the morning. Hot mic, there. Hot quiz. I enjoy seeing the fun you are creating, D. I think I sent you a photo of my pet doing a trick for Uncle Bernie…

    • Got it! And congratulations. With your one correct answer you are a winner! That was a tricky question too, because Clarice was the name of the horse with the jarring gait that Frankie rode temporarily when Burt got put on administrative leave for eating Doug’s submission.

    I love trivia quizzes, but like Manuel in Fawlty Towers “I know nothing” so I never do very well in them. Multiple choice often gives me a little benefit but I’m not so sure about the choices in this quiz. However all of them were fun so I’ll just tick them all, that way, I’ve got them all right. Right?

    That was a fun quiz/read even if I’m a few days behind schedule. I knew about half the answers, but all the above, kept confusing me.
    D. you are the winner for coming up with something fun each and every week.

“A delightful story of a conventional Delhi girl who finds herself in the eye of a storm, ‘Bowled but Not Out’ brings out a whirlwind of emotions through its pages.”
