Spoiler for I had


It doesn't follow the criteria:

Hint: You don't have to anagram. You only add a letter to the beginning or end and remove a letter from the beginning or end.

Hint two: you are all going to hate me so much. I blame a bit of sleep deprivation on my part. I do not know if this is a fair puzzle but I expect that someone will figure it out eventually.

To get each answer, remove a letter from the one before, then add a letter. Doing this to the last answer can also get you the first answer.


Spoiler for I'm obviously missing something..

But you did anagram, you didnt only do that ... PEETA can only result in ?EET?, cant it ? With anything else you're removing non_first_or_last letter or anagraming

It's been solved! Explaining the solution will result in my death by lynch mob, so I think I will run away now.

(Compare PEETA to PEPSI. What was lost? What was added?)

agree wholeheartedly. used to think the mark of excellence in riddling was that :duh: when all is understood and seemingly so simple after the answer is revealed. but the delayed headslap adds yet another level of excellence all together. very nice WoS!
