After an enjoyable, if not very tiring, weekend, I was working when I suddenly remembered that it is my wife's birthday this coming Saturday! Frantically, I texted her, asking what she wants for that special occasion, and she replied with a confusing message (again!).

What does this all mean?

Rate, huck, hail, mire (=> post).
Ripe, pule, west, name.
Deem, haen, cone, oral.
Brat, yale, rise, beak.
Dart, fest, flay, pose.
Scar, soil, cost, drew.
Each, tile, topi, code.
Rove, tide, dire, bind.
Aide, rich, idea, bass.
Mity, able, mime, vino.
Froe, bias, farl, bish.
Flow, fill, race, hair.
Piny, lede, noni, lure.
Aced, lice, mise, quit.
Sade, trot, vein, slip.
Clip, jeon, sand, mars.

The answer is a single word.

  • $\begingroup$ Just a wild guess: she wants rot13(qvibepr). That's the most logical explanation for sending you all that gibberish ! $\endgroup$
