Saturday Six #463

saturday six

This is the 25th week in a row that a letter of the alphabet inspired keywords that formed the basis of questions. Since it’s week 25, the letter of choice is our 25th, the letter Y.

Next week, we’ll wrap up the alphabet with six questions inspired by words beginning with the letter Z.

To play, just leave a comment with either your answers or the link to the post on your own blog if you choose to post the answers there! Each week, you can find other interesting blogs by checking the comments others leave.

Here are this week’s “Saturday Six” questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your blog… But don’t forget to leave a link to your blog so that everyone else can visit! Permission is not granted to copy the questions to message boards for the purpose of having members answer and play along there. Enjoy!

1. Y is for YACHT: What’s the biggest boat, ship or vessel you’ve set foot on?

2. Y is for YAM: What kind of potato do you prefer most: the traditional white potato or the sweet potato?

3. Y is for YAWN: You see someone yawn: how likely are you to yawn within a minute after that?

4. Y is for YELLOW: Look around you: what’s the first yellow thing you see?

5. Y is for YOGURT: Which flavor of yogurt is your favorite?

6. Y is for YOLK: If you were to eat eggs for breakfast, how would you prefer them cooked?

Next week, six questions inspired by the letter Z.

  1. 1. whatever a cruise ship is
    2. sweet potatoes are so good, especially when made into a pie!
    3. 98.7% certainty
    4. lamp shade
    5. strawberry banana
    6. fried on an english muffin with sausage and cheese

  2. 1. A speed boat. I’m stopping there. Things don’t seem to be going well on cruises.
    2. Traditional white. I don’t like sweet potatoes.
    3. I would almost bet the farm on it.
    4. A Post-It note.
    5. Chocolate. Duh!
    6. I’m not a huge fan of eggs, but I do like omelets.

  3. Dear Grammarpoliceman,
    This is the Spellingpolicewoman.  I believe the word you want is yolk, not yoke.  A yoke, if I recall correctly, is a board between two oxen so they can pull together.

    Anyway, on with the six.
    1.  When I was a kid my family went on a trip to Florida and my dad parked somewhere he wasn’t supposed to and our car was trapped by people who had arrived for a 4- or 6-hour gambling cruise.  We ended up getting to go along because we had nowhere else to go.  It was a big ship that goes out far enough to leave state waters so that gambling suddenly becomes legal.  I got seasick.

    2.  I like both, but I think the non-sweet potato is much more versatile, personally.

    3.  Studies have yet to show that yawning is actually contagious.

    4.  A tube of Carmex.

    5.  Plain.

    6.  Poached or over hard.

    1. otowi33.33 Ouch! You are quite correct…thanks for the catch. It’s funny that when I think about it, the spell-check flagged a transpotition of letters and suggested “yoke” as a replacement. I should’ve looked harder. Thanks for the catch and for playing!
