FEAR AND TREMBLING

If the frequency of usage of the answers to the upcoming "Grandfolks' Medicine Cabinet" wordpuzzle is anything like the frequency of usage of the term 'grandfolks' (18,000 Google hits vs. 43,000,000 for grandparents, 41,000,000 for grandma and 19,000,000 for grandpa), then I think we might wanna prepare ourselves for answers like
'seven cotton stick swabs' instead of the more pedestrian 'cotton swabs'. And so forth.

Without giving up anything, I will simply say that my word puzzles tend to be terse and succinct, not verbose and loquacious.

If that were true you would have said succinct and stopped there. But anyway I was talking about frequency of usage. 'Grandfolks' is odd and off-tune enough to be scary for us puzzle takers, that's all.

Jed, I think YOU are odd and off-tune enough to be scary to most puzzle-takers. Maybe it's just me.

You probably have a point there...

Tends to, but not to the point of exclusion.

Well I just took it and did a horrible job!
It was a good puzzle, though.

Might there be a word spelled wrong in the grandfolks medicine cabinet puzzle - we looked one up 4 times and never got the spelling that was in the puzzle - maybe its another countries way of spelling it but certainly not in our country.

I really enjoyed this puzzle, even though I did not do very well. I never knew any of my grandparents and therefore had no idea what they keep in their medicine cabinets.

This was very fun... and ALL of these were familiar to me. Unfortunately, I had a major misspelling of one of the items and it cost me so many moves trying to guess the possible way it was entered into the puzzle that I am way out of top ten tonight.
