Random Question Thursday
How long would it take you to complete this puzzle?
Seeing as how the project was started by a puzzle master kindergartener ... and she was given some help with the outer borders from a puzzle-obsessed friend ... you might think we could knock this out in fewer than 20 minutes.
Of course, you'd have to figure on my inability to fit together anything that isn't clearly labeled: "Insert this piece here into that piece there."
You'd also have to factor in the removal of all progress when an unattended toddler redistributes puzzle pieces throughout the family room.
And add to that a night in which to "sleep on it" after the dramatic outburst of aforementioned kindergartener to the sight of her dashed work coupled with her mother's inability to even begin to figure out the different pieces of blue. (Puzzle-obsessed friend didn't see her work destroyed, but I'm sure it would be cause for some consternation if not heartache when she reads this.)
Don't forget school. That's another six hours lost right there.
Where do the days go?
All told I'd say it took about three days (give or take 20 minutes for Champ wrangling and deflection) to finally see a kitten torture a goldfish.
