• @BrownEyedNinja any reason why you left out the word 'end'? Jul 21, 2017 at 19:43
• @BrownEyedNinja personally I'm not 100% sure this is a puzzle, and people in chat seem to agree. I only usually upvote high quality puzzles, and no offense, and this is understandable and common as this is your first puzzle, but I'm afraid I don't think it is high quality... don't give up though! Take a look at some other puzzles, and see if you can make some better ones! :) Jul 21, 2017 at 19:54
