This week's Saturday Scavenger Hunt falls on a celebrate-y sort of Saturday. Happy Independence Day, fellow U.S.ers. And a very Happy Saturday to others from elsewhere :-) This week's word, VAULT, comes to us courtesy of the twisty mind of NoRegrets. VAULT is a great word, with a few possible interpretations. When my oldest son ran track, I knew some pole VAULTers. Would the arch of the gate to my apartment count as a VAULT? Maybe. Overwhelmingly my thoughts returned to the kind of VAULT where you lock things away. Sometimes when you open it...nothing is there after all!
In the end, I laughed and went with Seinfeld, because I am very classy and sophisticated like that. You know...you can tell someone a secret and make them swear to put it in the VAULT, never to be shared. All well and good, but if you are like Elaine and most of the rest of us, there is always a key that will unlock the VAULT, revealing what should not be revealed. Watch "The Betrayal" if you need a reminder...great episode. Anyway, in Elaine's case the key to her VAULT is Schnapps...peach, I think. For me, yeah, I am so lightweight, any liquor would probably do the trick.
Here are some fuzzy shelves of alkyhol taken at the grocery store. Looks like I was already drunk, but no. Sadly, I don't have that excuse behind me. My point is though, that many people's VAULTs will be opened with a little liquid persuasion.
Hey, FYI, I could probably be persuaded to open the VAULT by simpler bribery involving something sweet from the depths of my frozen foods VAULT. It's true. I'm easy. Now you know.
Alright...that's all I gots. Don't blow off any body parts with your crazy firework laden celebrations today! In fact, it is a good day to put anything you don't want blown up into the VAULT for safe keeping. Check out all the VAULTS you can find here in the blogosphere...and be sure to find out from NoRegrets who she is going to tag for next week. Ka-Boom!
