# A Stoic Riddle

## Question

I’m a letter you can send,

Often break, even bend.

Where I work bears my name,

Standing stoic is my game.

With distant journeys I’m involved,

With lofty goals and problems solved.

I'm truly astounded that no one has gone through the alphabet sounding out the letters to see which one fits this particular puzzle.

thought I was onto something with "line" as in drop me a line, stand in line, odds or line on the game, etc. But now, how 'bout "queue"?

Wow! About time! Plainglazed gets it.

Golf Tee

When hit, the tee can be sent off the "tee" (where I work bears my name) and it is often broken, while the plastic tees bend.

Tees help novice golfers get loft and contact and like a tiny atlas, the tee holds the ball.

Another great one Shakee! Five stars from me. So plainly hidden I still thought your titan explanation was a nod to t_l's Atlas guess until I saw chic's post above. Another, now double

Swing and a miss. And, not sure what you are driving at, but that isn't an everyday object, is it?

Ha Ha! I'd completely missed this. But, Shakeepuddn', true for you that a tee is an everyday object? Lucky Duck!

Thanks folks. I was amazed that nobody nailed it sooner.

As for the person who voted it worth only one star, I would certainly appreciate your input as to how I could make my riddles, crappy as they are, live up to your standards. After all, a one star rating is meant to indicate an utter failure worthy of the garbage bin, and not one's frustration with his or her inability to solve a riddle. So perhaps some examples of your own for guidance? Thanks.

If you got a one star vote, must have been someone hitting from the rough.

Always to the fore in our minds Shake. Awaiting your next.
