THE WEDDING CAKE LOOKED DELICIOUS AND WOULD BE EATEN – – –
OAM SEE NTN GMIT = “INGEST” A MOMENT
Happy Wednesday Jumble friends! Was today’s answer hard to swallow? Don’t feel bad because it took quite some time to crumb up with the solution myself. Definitely a labor of love!
Today’s anagrams split neatly into two groups. Both of the 5-letter ones were repeats while those of the 6-letter variety came up as new. None of them gave me the runaround and no whisks had to be taken. MIGATB edged out TOONNI as my pick for hardest anagram. The double vowels and consonants in the layout of NOTION were ALL bark and NO bite.
The tradition of the bride and groom feeding each other cake is meant to symbolize the beginning of sharing their food, their love and their lives together. And if you’re a guest, it typically marks the point in the evening when the older folks call it a night and the dancing and drinking starts! I was kind of surprised that they were eating a slice from the top tier of the cake. Usually it’s reserved and frozen for the couple to consume on their first wedding anniversary.
The final solve was an anagram consisting of 13 (unlucky) letters. The sentence wasn’t any help and the woman asking the couple to “hold on” was too subtle for me to find. My aha moment arrived when I finally spotted ENT in the layout and noticed the M. With the letters for MOMENT and A out of the way, INGEST was a . . . piece of cake! Have a wonderful Wednesday, and I’ll see you right back here tomorrow!
