Somebody has to be the first to make a guess.

What I want is:

a. air. Are you the atmosphere?
b. water. Are you a river or a lake or a well?
c. food. Are you the earth?
d. a roof above my head. Are you a wall?
e. a house. Are you a foundation?
f. a bed. Are you a bedroom?
g. money. Are you a wallet, a bank or a rich person?
h. sudoku. Are you a newspaper?

Are you Pandora's box?

OR,

Are you the elusive Fleur-de-lis [LA Confidential]:D ?

OR,

Are you 180 degrees symmetry? (I have it but you definitely don't:D )

1a]Magnetism (if I desired to be more attractive)
1b]Glue (if I'liked a quick sniff)
1c]Rope (if I was into bondage)

2]Are you a heart? (heart=seat of soul and container of desire; I desire, I want)

Luna, you're on the right track ... I think ... but not there yet.

But if "the answer" would be the answer, the quoted sentence would have been "I am what you want". However, it does hold what you want. The answer must lie in the sentence "I hold what you want", so, in other words, that sentence holds the answer.

So, are you:
i. the previous sentence?
j the quoted sentence?
k. the riddle?
l. the [quote][/quote] tags?

I do not mind if you utter an unseemly word when I pinched this one away from you.:)

Which reminds me: as a moderator, you can update your post and remove mine:(

Possibly.

I don't utter unseemly words, and it remains to be seen if you've pinched this from me.:D

'The ruudiments of moon watching'.

The authors of the above have provided the answer, they have thought outside the box by thinking inside the box.

'The answer' is not the answer.

The answer is 'a riddle'.


For those who do not know what a riddle is:

Amongst other meanings, a riddle is: a coarse sieve. Used to seperate larger items from smaller ones.


So that after using a riddle it retains what you want.

Great job Ruud, again...

I think some of us are actually waiting eagerly for some unseemliness from Luna... Not me though... I'm looking for some unseen smiles instead...:D
