Brain Game: Sandy's Shopping Spin
Have you ever grabbed a shopping cartÂ while enteringÂ a grocery store or department store, just to find someone's discarded shopping list inside? Well, I have. People also love to leave behind sale papers, unneeded receipts, old gum wrappers, you name it... I evenÂ found a banana peel once.
Anyway, when I pulled out a shopping cart during a recent journey to a local store, I found whatÂ appeared to beÂ a woman's clothes shopping list. (Okay, this didn't really happen.Â Just run with it.)Â A quick glance at the list made it clearÂ thatÂ the shopperÂ wasÂ interested inÂ some new clothes. Judging from the choices,Â I assumed thatÂ she must beÂ headed somewhere warm. The list read as follows:
After studying the list for a few seconds, I noticedÂ something odd: no underwear. Then I noticed something even moreÂ odd about the entries...Â What was it?Â
Here'sÂ the SOLUTION.
Each of the items on the list becomes a new word when you removeÂ its first letter.
GOWN -> OWN
SUNDRESS -> UNDRESS
PANTS -> ANTS
CLOGS -> LOGS
FROCK -> ROCK
BLOUSE -> LOUSE
