The first contestant to EMAIL me the right answer wins a featured link in my blog which will display until next Monday when we’ll play this little game again. Enjoy.

PLEASE, do not write your guess in the comments. It spoils the game for the other players. Your guesses will be shared when the game ends.

Hint #1: adverb-phrase: “topsy-turvy”, “bent out of shape”, “over the top”, etc.
Hint #2: you’re going to flip when you see how easy the answer is!
Hint #3: It’s Almost like falling in love.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. My Reflections – Day 2 is up…. tho I haven’t a clue what your Punny Monday is about. Guess I’ll have to go sleep reflect on it.

  2. Mom falled asleep at the puter while I was outside fur my last pee of the night. So I let myself in and took over the ‘puter from her, arf arf arf. So now my Reflections is done. And there’s a note there fur you in yesterdays comments, Quilly.

    Now… nap! zzzZZZZZzzzz

  3. DANGLING PARTICIPLE!!! Umm…. okay… my guess is in your mailbox.

    It’s an awesome reflection! I just wish I had SOME idea of what I was seeing!

  4. Oh man…today I don’t have a clue at all. Slept was raining and I just didn’t have a clue it was that late.
    Anyway, my reflection is up this morning.

    Your’s is cool, but like I said no idea on the pun.

  5. No guesses! I read that you also write poetry so I thought you mike like to join us – One Single Impression is a community of poets writing and sharing haiku and other poetic forms. Each week we will offer up a new prompt that we hope will inspire your writing. We invite participants to share ideas for prompts, too.

  6. I know I should know this… *shakin’ my head*… I feel DUMB!

    (and I can’t believe you haven’t been to my reflection yet today… you’re slippin’!)

  7. I’m not feelin’ so bad since Melli always gets them and even she is stumped. Hey…my first reflection is UP! Yayyyyy!

  8. Comments I received from Doug between guesses:

    1.) Curse you. I’m trying to stop thinking about this. I have a job, and work to do, probably.

    2.) By the way, kudos on the arrangement. The two reflections (reflecting both sides of the coin?) and the coin stuck between boards reflected in the mirror is a neat set-up.

    3.) Did I forget to curse you a minute ago?

    4.) You’re trying to aggravate me, aren’t you?

    5.) I’m a hero! Do I win a quarter?

  9. I’ve been so busy with the garden with my garden that I’m way late getting around today.
    Great way to tie in both memes!
    I didn’t read adverb so at first look I thought heads or tails.
    Way to go Betty – Quilly too! 🙂

  10. Alas Sweet Alice, you’ve reflected too long!

    Mar — don’t scratch too hard, your blood will leak out.

    Reba — I am glad your post is up. I hope you helped your mom to bed.

    Dragonstar — thank you very much. I am proud of it and rather disappointed that the game drew attention away from the reflections in the photo.

    Carver — thank your for your comment on the photo. I was proud of everything but the paper towel lint.

    Brian — stay safe.

    Melli — you almost won.

    Dr. John — I am glad you liked the photo. I am sorry you were too stumped to toss a guess into the ring.

    Mary — you aren’t a dummy. Melli says I used the wrong images for the guess.

    Gattina — thanks for reflecting!

    Amber — man! Google skipped a whole passel of you this morning!

    Juliana — in this case, it was best not to think of it as money.

    WT4W — Wow! I’ll be right over to check it out.

    Melli — why? A few minutes quicker and you would have won.

    Shelly — I’ll be right there.

    Polona — who says you have to be sensible? Hmmm?

    Doug — your hysterical guesses and assides just about had me falling off he couch laughing this morning. Thanks.

    Carletta — thank you. And Betty’s guess was good, but Doug won.

  11. oh… i would never have guessed it. not that i haven’t heard the phrase before but… well, not being a native english speaker surely doesn’t help

  12. Holly — you know how to make me laugh.

    Andrew — how little? I thought you were teaching 5th grade? You should share the photos with them and sharpen their critical thinking skills.

    Jules — thank you! [preens] I was very pleased with all my reflections — not so pleased with the paper towel lint my eyes couldn’t see but the camera sure could!

    Minkydo — it’s here every Monday — and some games are easier than others.

    Polona — Melli tells me my photo was misleading because there was no heel to be seen.

    Doug — this comment right here is my favorite for the week — you’ve just barely edged out Holly, above …. OC came home from work and said, “Did you have to list them all, you’ve publicly embarrassed Doug for life.” My compassionate response? “He knows what I do with the answers. He could have stopped guessing at any time.”)

    Btw — my favorite of your wild guesses was LMNOP.
