Subj: Box Lunch Auction w/Anagram (S171)
From: collins2 on 5/12/00
The church social was the lunch
basket auction, when the
gentlemen bid on the ladies' tasty homemade lunches.
To make sure her beau, Bill,
chose the right one, Rose
secretly slipped him a note listing her meal's ingredients.
Not wanting to seem too eager, however, she wrote her mouth-
watering menu in code.
"The words in bold print spell
out the foods I've tucked
into my basket," she whispered to her admirer. "But just
for fun, I mixed up the letters to form five anagrams.
You'll have to decipher what they say."
Unfolding her note, Bill read the following message:
"My fondness for a farm boy will
LEAD ME ON quickly TO ALSO
ADAPT to livestock. I will learn to SELL A COW and a FINE
RED CHICK. And when a lamb IS BORN WE will celebrate."
Luckily, the infatuated lad was
a whiz with words. So when
the auctioneer read off the contents of a blue and white
wicker basket, he knew his sweetheart had packed it.
Can you be as shrewd as Bill
and serve up the five "goodies"
Rose included in her cryptic picnic lunch?
