## Question

umbrella with it’s handle uncentered,

It will make a point before the ending,

And in the end you’ll see it in the ashes.

Hint

Some of the line(s) are letters,

Some of the line(s) are words,

What I am describing,

You need to assemble!

Still very clueless for me.

Start with 7.5 but not in inches, add an - what's 7.5? A 15/2, a pistol, hmmm....

umbrella with it’s handle uncentered, - a 'r'? or a 'bre'?

It will make a point before the ending, - definitely not a fullstop. Could it be 'o'?

And in the end you’ll see it in the ashes. - dust?

Start with 7.5 but not in inches, add an - what's 7.5? A 15/2, a pistol, hmmm....- think math

umbrella with it’s handle uncentered, - a 'r'? or a 'bre'?- think outside the 'words' box

It will make a point before the ending, - definitely not a fullstop. Could it be 'o'?- no

And in the end you’ll see it in the ashes. - dust?- no

Oh I get it you mean

'J' as the handle of the umbrella, nice thinking. But, you are not there yet, in order to get the correct letter put it 'uncentered'

Welcome to the Den! That answer isn't correct. I compose my riddles so that each line gives a letter or two or an entire word that you need to assemble in the end to get the correct solution. So the overall solution of the riddle doesn't have to do anything with the lines. Check my previous ones they are all marked as "What am I?" (with a number in brackets) so you'd know exactly what I'm talking about! But nice thinking, I understand why you thought that could be the right solution.

Have fun!

Actually think of an

actual umbrella with a 'J' handle and go from there. You'll need some imagination to get that letter or draw it down if necessary!

One more hint for this one

if you imagine an umbrella with 'J' handle you might need a mirror to see the letter

! + an extra hint for trying, if you manage to guess line 4 (word) the riddle is as good as solved!!!

umbrella with it’s handle uncentered, -a

It will make a point before the ending, -? p or i?

And in the end you’ll see it in the ashes. -she or hash or tease (words in "the ashes")

right?

You got half a line right

line 3.- 'p' is one of the letters, but you are wrong on the others, line 2. that 'a' doesn't really look like an umbrella with it's handle uncentered

the umbrella is openned. If it is closed then I should see a 'w'

right?

Nope

the umbrella is opened. Imagine an umbrella from a side an draw it down if you have to... an like I already said, if you guess line 4., the riddle is "piece of cake"

You are thinking in the right direction, but

it's NOT in inches (I'm from Europe)

Maybe G? It has a J looking doo-hicky and a umbrella looking thing-a-ma-bob.

While I'm at it, is numero uno N? As in 7.5 inches = (N)ineteen cm?

No. But you are thinking in right direction

for line one check post #20 and combine that with your guess!

For line two draw an umbrella as you would see it from a side, an open umbrella and then just "uncenter" it's handle!

It's really an easy puzzle, especially line number

4

line 1 is a lowercase "e"
