Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 28th March, 2018

28th March, 2018.

Yes, it’s true: drinking through a straw, at the moment, seems to be a good thing.

I means I don’t dribble.

Well … 

Any more than I would do, normally.

Which seemed to work out well enough.

Until this morning … when I had too much of a mouthful of tea … 

That started dribbling out of my nose.

That’s … 

Well, frankly, it’s simultaneously amazingly dignified … and rather disconcerting.

Yeah … 


Let’s move on.

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Mr Strict*, Olga† and Debbi‡ putting in their answers: with all three scoring five out of five.

Let’s see how everyone does with today’s questions, shall we?

Q4) 28th March, 1983, saw Ian McGregor named as head of Britain’s National … what?
Q5) Finally … Zoe Elizabeth Sugg was born on 28th March, 1990.   She’s famously known as Zoella, and a lifestyle vlogger on which site?   (She does makeup!   It’s EXCITING!!!)

And a song …

Today’s questions will be answered in tomorrow’s Teaser.

Have a good day.

*        Morning, Mr S!

†        Yeah, I think I might have to Olga: nasal dribbling’s not necessarily fun!   And take your time, I know how tricky these things are!   (It’s like impotence and importance, it’s AMAZING how these things catch you unawares …)

‡        Yeah, Britain’s hopefully changed, since then Debbi: but I’ve always had the impression there’s going to be a ‘but … ’ involved, somewhere … !
