I'm trying to remember the names of some old acquaintances. If I describe them to you, perhaps you can help me out by telling me their names.

  1. He was once an insufferable borrower, but he turned out to be quite the kisser.
  2. She was like a weasel in the water, and she could work wonders with clay.
  3. I never saw such a talented individual die so soon.
  4. The most detestable person I ever knew who didn't break the rules.
  5. She lived near the water because of her dandruff problem.
  6. Who knew such a thoughtful, logical man could betray his country?
  7. The man would curse his foes for days, but he never lacked for research funding.
  8. What can I say? He was constantly positive and he had quite the mane.
  9. She had an exceptional green thumb, but her life was constantly headed downwards.
  10. He's great during the winter, but never invite him to a poker game.
  11. When she isn't enraged, she's quite the sentinel of the forest.
  12. He was a jewel of a friend.


Many thanks. Trying to remember has me exhausted.

Sincerely,

Q. Weary

  • $\begingroup$ @JLee. A stickler never breaks the rules. And you probably would detest someone who tickles a lot. $\endgroup$ – CodeNewbie Aug 2 '15 at 17:55
