What's That? Wednesday


Greetings, folks! Today we're going to play a little game I have lifted from my friend Kathy of the Junk Drawer because 1.) Kathy is an innovator and 2.) it has been a case of "long time no blog" here on Cabbages and I didn't want you all to think I had fallen off the face of the Earth or that I didn't love you anymore.

The game is called What's That? Wednesday. All you have to do is guess what the object up at the top of the page is and share your answer in the comments section. The first person to guess correctly will win a copy of my comic space fantasy novel There Goes the Galaxy.


And for some added fun, for the person who correctly guesses what alternate use this item has in my household, that person will also win a copy of my book. (No, no one person can win two copies. We want to spread the freebie goodness around here.) I will announce the winners next week at this time so everyone has a chance to play.

It should be noted that I personally am terrible at these sorts of games, which Kathy can attest to because I have left many a lame answer in her comments section over the years. I am also horrible about guessing how many items are in a jar, or how much change I have dropped on the floor because my purse wasn't closed, holding up the line and annoying the heck out of the people in line behind me.

Good luck!

I already won a copy so I won't leave a guess here, but I think I have a good idea. I'll wait to see if I'm right.

Looks like a casserole lid inside a chinet paper plate.

It's a lid to your.... soap box !

It looks like a lid to a canister.

Alternate use? Frisbee? sun-catcher? Cat toy?

I'll give a little hint-- no one has guessed what the item is yet.

Mwahahahahahaaaaa!

a microwavable plate?

or a frizbee?

Oooh, ooh, I know exactly what that is! It's the plastic thingy that comes in the top of solid deodorant.

Wow, I've never been so excited to know what a piece of trash was.

I'm not sure what your alternate use is, but I knew it right away because I keep mine too. I'm afraid of ever having BO, so I keep deodorant in my purse and in my car and in my gym bag and always have at least one extra that lives in the suitcase for traveling and... Well, you get my point. I put the plastic thingy back on it to try to keep it all together when it gets jostled around from being in a purse for so long.

"Plastic Thingy" is the technical term, right?

It's a pot light. Alternate use? You smoke it.

Jenn Thorson said...

I'm enjoying seeing folks get their wheels turning on this. Despite the illegal nature of some of the suggestions... (Dufus.) :)

Jaffer said...

You use it to plug the tub when you require because the cat lost the original one that came with it.

Jenn -- You'll be pleased to know that whenever someone else does the "What's That" posts, I NEVER guess correctly myself. Posting them and answering them are way different things.

Now, MzHartz suggests it's a deodorant cap, but I've never seen a round one of those. My pit sticks are oval, not round.

So my guess will be nothing. As usual. I have no clue.

Dufus -- What's a pot light?

Jenn Thorson said...

Kathy- I AM pleased to know that, actually. You also choose some really cool, obscure objects.

Deray said...

I agree with MzHartz, it has to be the plastic cap from the deodorant. So, I will guess on an alternative use: candle offer, you know those things you use to turn off a candle. Or, a Xmas ornament.

Btw, I already have your book but I know someone that will enjoy it if I win :-)
