934. Mental Workout

A cross-word puzzle,
she does it with an ink pen...
before her breakfast.

[My wife loves to do cross word puzzles and is quite good at them. It used to amaze me how she would always insist on doing them with a ball-point pen.

Technical note: This haiku has a 5-7-5 syllable format.]

I use a pen as well. :)

Nice touch, that line, "before her breakfast".

with a pen --- wonderful -- I really like this
(Aurora, I bet you've never had to use an eraser. :) )

My Dad did one every morning after breakfast and used a pen. Good memory, thanks!!

Aurora: Living on the edge, eh? ;-)

Andrew: Thanks.

Pamela: She's not bad, but you'd better watch out if you go head-to-head with her in Scrabble!

Gillena: An astute observation.

John: Thanks.

Floots: Another one who likes living on the edge. Before breakfast makes the "edge" feel sharper, I suppose. :-)

Pat: Thanks. It seems these little puzzles are quite popular.
