TO GET INFORMATION BEFORE CUTTING HAIR, THE SALON OWNER DID —
INGOLDEDEIC = “DO” DILIGENCE
Good morning everyone and happy Friday! David and Jeff gave us some really fun puzzles this week, and it looks like they saved the best for last! The clue words were superb with DEFIED being the most challenging anagram for me to decipher. SCENIC has been used numerous times in the past but it still gives me that extra moment of pause. With all of the clue words solved, it was on to the best part — the cartoon! Reading the dialogue and sentence, I started my solve by trying to identify the key words that would be needed to help get me across the finish line. Picking up on info, style, and thorough had me thinking about words associated with a hair salon. DO came instantly as my choice for the two letter word in quotes. DILIGENCE seemed like a reasonable fit and I wrote out the clue letters just to make sure my guess was correct. Everything fit neatly into place leaving this puzzle with it’s stylish pun a cut above the rest! I wish everyone a wonderful weekend and I’ll see you tomorrow!
