It is nice to see a brand new teaser. Doehead should be pleased. I thought I had it by the second word, and like others before me, the last word nailed it..

I LOVED this teaser! If you'll notice, the first 2 comments are from one month ago. I don't remember seeing this teaser before. We miss you, Doehead! Sorry you've disappeared! Happy weekend, all!

Well done, GA. Took me a few minutes to come up with the correct answer, very nice teaser.

It took me a few minutes as well. I liked it, though. It made me think over Holiday Break.

It wasn't entirely clear to me that the letters had to be in the same order.

I love this teaser. Took me a while, but the tequila seemed to be the only word I could make and it worked.
Hope everybody had a great turkey day.
