What a word to try though-good play!

Haha, I just looked it up. Looks like it has nothing to do with liquor but sadly enough, practically speaking, there probably is a strong association between the 2.

Thanks TR!

I just found out today I'm a MESORHINE person. So that's a big relief. Lol

Lol, I love your pun.

My favorite play on words of all time came from a B.C. comic strip. A woman on the psychiatrist's couch said, "A man only uses half his brain but a woman uses all of her brain." Thought bubble over male psychiatrist's head: "I have half a mind to charge her double."

I really didn't have any hope for this, but it worked! BLOODGUILTINESS for 28 points.

Well done Spike!
I've tried some strange ones that worked, but wouldn't have thought of this one. Thinking about it, with time for me to really think, bloodguilt makes sense, then you put on the most thoughtful of additions. In less than 3 minutes!

Wow!

Lol! Like this one!

Thanks a bunch,

Thanks TR. I'm not sure I can claim to be "thoughtful". I mostly look for pieces & see if they can fit together, whether they really make sense or not. (I'd be embarrassed to tell you some things I've tried.) I saw the BLOOD and the NESS, and everything else seemed to line up. I go for long words, so if I can't see anything else, I'll spend a lot of time just playing. Sometimes it pays in weird ways.

Good for you Spike! Strangely enough I know that word. Guess we've watched too many historical dramas.

EXPRESSO(S)

Turns out there's actually some debate over whether "expresso" is an acceptable alternative form of "espresso." I tend to think it's not acceptable, but it scored points anyway!
