Whoops, I messed up my usual schedule and haven’t been blogging as much last month — so here I offer you, along with my apologies, a special Tuesday edition of TGIF Minute Mysteries.
First, the answer to our previous mystery: The man has hiccups; the bartender scares them away by pulling a gun. No one quite guessed it…although I liked the theory that it was a water gun!
And today’s mystery: A man is holding a box. Though he cannot see into it, he knows exactly what’s inside. How is this possible? Leave comments with your theories!
After a looooong break (sorry about that!), the Friday Minute Mysteries are back!
A man walks into a bar and asks for a drink. The bartender pulls out a gun and points it at him. The man says, “Thank you,” and walks out.
What happened? Leave a comment with your theory!
(If you happen to be old enough to remember the last mystery I posted (yeah, it was a while back), the answer is: The room is the ballroom of a sunken ocean liner. The rays are manta rays. The man ran out of air while scuba diving in the shipwreck. al guessed it! Go, al!)
A man is lying dead in a dark room. There is a large pile of gold and jewels on the floor, a chandelier attached to the ceiling, and a large window through which rays are coming.
What’s going on? How did he die? Leave comments with your theories!
(Where in Westerville answer for September 28: The photo was taken at a corporate building on the corner of Cleveland Avenue and County Line Road — I can’t remember the name — but Luke guessed it!)
Where in Westerville was this photo taken?
(Answer from Sept. 14: This is a picture from a house at the corner of Vine St. and Old County Line Road, across from Old Towne Park. Meo, Luke, Jenna, and him all guessed it! If you haven’t taken a look, go by and check out all the random blue stuff in the yard!!)
You guys know Westerville pretty well! Last week’s photo was the Westerville BMX/Skateboard Park at Schrock and Park Meadow Road. Luke, magz, and Hannah all guessed it!
So where in Westerville was this photo taken?
(Last week’s answer: It’s a chess game – knight jumps over rook to take pawn. Emily, Laurin, and Sarah all guessed it!)
This week, we have a new twist on the mystery, continued from the Summer Reading Blog.
Can you guess where in Westerville this photo was taken? Leave a comment with your best theory!
A horse jumps over a tower and lands on a man, who disappears.
What’s going on?
(Last week’s answer: The man was an astronaut out on a space walk. Meo, Evan, and Sarah guessed it exactly, and Lily and Jenna were close enough! Great job!!)
A man was doing his job when he noticed a tear in this clothing. 15 minutes later, he was dead.
(Last week’s answer: A baseball game is going on. The base-runner sees the catcher waiting at home plate with the ball, and so decides to stay at third base to avoid being tagged out. Evan, Meo, and Sarah all guessed it! Piece of cake!)
Joe wants to go home, but he can’t go home, because the man in the mask is waiting for him.
What’s going on?
(Last week’s answer: It is a painting of Henry VIII. No one guessed it!)
(Previous week’s answer: The man falls off the river bank and drowns. Jenna guessed it!)
King Henry VIII is lying at the bottom of the stairs with a gash across his face.
(Last week’s mystery was posted late – sorry! – so no answers till we get some guesses. Check it out!)
A man falls on the way to the bank and is never seen again.
(Last week’s answer: The object she threw was a boomerang. It looped back around and hit her a deadly blow in the head. Sarah guessed it! Woo hoo!)
A woman throws something out a window and dies.
What happened? (Several possible answers here…got any theories?)
(Last week’s answer: A mosquito bit me, then landed on the wall, where I smashed it. Great guesses by all!)
Some of my blood is on the wall, but I’m not bleeding.
How did it get there?
(Last week’s answer: The man died from eating a poisoned popsicle. Marsia was closest, but I loved Laurin and Rachel’s creative answers!)
A man is found dead lying in a pool of red, with a small wooden stick in his hand.
What happened? (Think creatively here!)
(Last week’s answer: It’s a wolf pack; they’ve killed the man. No one got it, but Boston’s answer worked well!)
A man is found dead in the arctic with a pack on his back.
(Last week’s answer: He’s a priest; he’s marrying them to other people, not himself. Kristin and Evan both guessed it!)
