Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. – Abraham Lincoln
Amazingly, thinking of this week’s mystery subject wasn’t that hard, perhaps that’s because I expended enough “brain juice” today on the job! I’ve never been so glad to step away from the computer just long enough to photograph said mystery subject (because obviously, I’m back now. sigh). So without further ado, here is your seventh weekly “what is it?!?” mystery picture, ready for your guessing pleasure. Do you know? Can you tell?
What Is It?!?
What Was That?!? Last Week’s Picture (Week 6/52)
Brenda started the guessing game, “A seed?” Not a seed. “A button?” Not a button either. Anna guessed, “Is it the head of a Q-tip?” Not a Q-tip, although that’s what I think it looks like, too. Unfortunately, the guessing on wordpress.com ended; however, on Facebook land, the game continued. Shahn’s perspective: “A cotton wick to a candle.” Stephanie’s perspective, “A diamond!” Kim said, “My son’s brain.” Betsy thought, “Lint in ur belly button. Lololol!!” Alas, not a cotton wick, nor a diamond, not Kim’s son’s brain (LOL), nor is it lint in my belly button! But then Jacqueline guessed, “A shoe lace.” Ding ding ding! Scott won bonus points for, “An Aglet, cool.”
So yes indeed, what you saw was an Aglet, the fancy name for a shoelace. 😀
