Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 1st December, 2017

Right … 

It’s a Friday: and I’ve been paid.

Frankly?   That means I’m going shopping on Sunday, as that’s my next day off.

And stopping at the Co-op near work, tonight.

It always amazes me how milk manages to run out … when it’s fiddly to get to the shops.


I’m not Harry and Meghan.

They can do the walk about, while some else else picks up the milk … 


Let’s move on, shall we?

Yesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: scoring ten out of ten in the process.   The day also saw Olga* looking in: letting us know about her cold.

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

Here’s a tune … 

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

Have a good Friday.

*        Debbi, that’s a shocking suggestion to make.   Especially when there’s so many rotten cabbages around!   But I know this.   Whenever President Trump goes on tour, most BBC newsreaders ask if there’s someone around, who’ll take his phone off him!   (There IS a petition on YouGov: asking the the State Visit invite issued to Trump after he was elected, be withdrawn.   It needs another 9000 or so signatures before Parliament responds to it.)

†        Still got problems with the voice, Olga?   That’s possibly another job for Igor: and a set of spare teeth …   At ANY rate?   There’s a petition on YouGov, about him: asking that his state visit invite be withdrawn.   It’s got a way to go, before it’s debated, though … (Debbi’s suggestion about heaving tomatoes at him, appeals, though …)
