Recently, a kitten found a temporary home in our house. I didn’t plan on naming him, since he was temporary.
Carl thought that everyone, no matter how temporary, should have a name. With a keen eye, he examined the kitten. “This one is going to cause lots of trouble. His name will be, ‘Pool.’”
It was an odd name and I could tell by the mischief in Carl’s eyes that his name selection involved a riddle. I eventually figured it out, but I won’t say how long it took. For your convenience I have provided clues. It would be fun to hear from you and see who solved the riddle using the least number of clues. The question again? Why did Carl choose the name, ‘Pool’? Here are the hints:
1. not water
3. River City
4. “with a capitol…”
5. “stands for…”
6. old movie
In next week’s post I will reveal the answer. In the meantime, would any of you like to share your lives with this fine feline? Isn’t he cute?
A late update: Pool has found a new home. The best part? He lives nearby so we can visit him, but someone else will be feeding him.
