In Which We Beat the Bushes

Nobody, nobody took the feechie challenge. So methinks I asked to much of fantasy fans during Christmas rush. We'll try it again. Pick ONE, only one, of the ten examples and leave your response in the comments. I am digging around in my prize box, trying to find something suitable to award he who makes an effort. Hmm? Has to be something I can mail for one stamp, because I'm cheap. (on a budget, same thing) A stick of gum? A bookmark? A wish for brighter teeth? Brighter days has been done. I'll think of something.

Here's the list again:
  1. A feechie is smarter than most _______________ , but not much.
  2. A hefeechie smells like a _____________________, but twice as strong.
  3. The smell coming off a feechie will ______________________ .
  4. One feechie more than a dozen makes a _______________ .
  5. Better to sit down with a feechie and have a ____________________ than spend your time _______________ing.
  6. Never give a feechie a ________________ ; he'll only use it to ___________.
  7. The worst place to come face to face with a feechie is _____________.
  8. The best defense against feechie invasion is to leave ___________ around the rottenest trees on your property.
  9. Feechies have been known to skin ____________, fricassee the innards, and serve 'em to _________________.
  10. You don't want to sit on a feechie's head; they're most likely to ________________.

I wanted to do this quiz yesterday.

The thing is...I've read all the feechie books more than once, but I can't answer one of the questions. I guess I get caught up in the stories and I read them so fast that I don't retain all the feechie lore.

So here are my made up wild guesses:

A feechie is smarter than most ___catfish_____ , but not much. (But I really think feechies are very smart in their own ways.)

A hefeechie smells like a ____catfish____, but twice as strong. (hey! cool idea. I wonder if I can use catfish for every answer.)

The smell coming off a feechie will ______singe your'n nose hairs____ .

One feechie more than a dozen makes a ___passel of trouble for the civilizer what has stumbled into the Feechiefen_______ .

Better to sit down with a feechie and have a __feechie arm rassel_____ than spend your time __with civilizers doing nothing but tea drinking.

Never give a feechie a ___bar of soap___ ; he'll only use it to ___wax his boogie board__.(yes, I've heard they catch some mighty fine waves in them there swamps.)

The worst place to come face to face with a feechie is ___in the mirror___.

The best defense against feechie invasion is to leave ___sweet lavender soap___ around the rottenest trees on your property.

Feechies have been known to skin ___lizards__, fricassee the innards, and serve 'em to ___their babies__.

You don't want to sit on a feechie's head; they're most likely to ___dive into a alligator wallow with you__.

OK I know I didn't get a single one right and that kind of hurts my feelings because I've thought of myself of something of a feechie expert. But these were hard questions. I wonder if the author hisself could answer them all correctly.

HEY! There's no right or wrong. This was to be your imagination filling in the blanks. And Sally, you did a great job!

Feechies have been known to skin worms, fricassee the innards, and serve 'em to toads.

Rebecca LuElla Miller said...

Well, I put my answers in the last post before I came to this one. Very fun! But Donita, I think you should give us your answers, too.

I didn't see your posts until just now. Is it ok if I do several??

5. Better to sit down with a feechie and have a nice long chat than to spend your time rambling to yourself.

6. Never give a feechie a cookie; he'll only use it to try and catch you.

8. The best defense against feechie invasion is to leave shiny objects around the rottenest tree on your property.

10. You don't want to sit on a feechie's head; they're most likely to sneeze.

If you would rather that I just entered one, then how about going with number 10?

Thanks for that! That was a ton of fun! :)

Assr vísa ykkarr or∂. (God guide your words.)

This is great! You have done a great job. I am in the process of designing a feechie earring as a prize. Totally worthless I assure you.
I can't participate in filling in the blanks. I am building a dragon for three booksignings this weekend and a friend is coming over to help me install the mouth and throat.

Okay, gang, I promised some kind of treat for those who participated and rather than send you a worthless feechie button, which I designed out of some weeds from the backyard, I am creating Feechie Swamp Stew. Give me a couple of days to perfect or (defect) the recipe. So far it's a low-fat, low carb masterpieces. you will have to take a knife and fork to it.
