Hmm…

This one took me rather more time than I can afford to waste, largely owing to the somewhat tedious sense of humour of its compiler, but also owing to a certain sluggishness on my part. I still nailed it, making the score two out of three from this book, which I intend to complete before the crack of doom.

Hooray!

I was experiencing some difficulty, then “twerp” led me to “Amenhotep”, whereafter things went smoothly. Patience is crucial. LJ
