Her friends didn't understand why she started doing that. But years later, when they found out, they were left aghast.

If her friends knew she was "doing that" when she first began to do that, then are we to assume that

(1) her friends were with her
(2) in her home
(3) where she was doing something that they all were happy about, at that time
(4) such as food preparation

Oh, lord. Shez and Galfisk, you are giving me scary ideas.

Was it something like boiling lobsters alive?

Or some other activity that might make people squeamish, if they are getting ready to eat dinner?


PS. (Go ahead, throw overboard all the people who ate albatross, fell from airplanes, forgot their parachutes, died from icicles in their chests, I don't mind, but ... okay, shutting up now)

What you have discovered so far:
Her friends didn't understand why she started doing that. This thing she started doing regularly was considered 'normal', so much that her friends not only were aware of it but also helped her. Every time she did it, she got a little bit tensed, because she knew what she was doing was in preparation for her final goal: kill her husband.


HINT: I think it will be more fun to find out what she started doing years before killing her husband, something that was considered normal at that time and so shocking today as we know her purpose (even more shocking to her friends, especially).

'Hint' #2: One of her friends was heard saying, today, in disbelief: "(...) from Paris. From Paris!"

did she start collecting something? YES!!! did she hide her husband's body (or bits of it) in the thing itself? YES, but there's a slight FA or in the containers it came in?

was she buying hats? perfume? food items? bottles? jars? boxes? This

So... it's time for

**************SPOILER*****************
No one knows for sure what her husband did to her, but one day she started collecting boxes, of all kinds and colors. Her friends thought nothing of it (after all, that's a pretty innocent hobby). They even helped her on her new hobby, and on her birthday they needed no longer to think about what present to give her. She always boasted a tense smile everytime she was given a box, but no one thought much about it.
Years later, the police invaded her house and found, besides blood all around, hundreds of boxes all over the place, each one containing a bone of her husband. The larger boxes were for the femur and pelvis; the smallest of the boxes, for the bones of the wrist and of the middle ear. All of her friends were aghast to learn the real purpose of her hobby. One of them, who had brought her a chic box from Paris, was in disbelief when she saw her friend used it to place her husband's head.


Congratulations to all of you. Hope you enjoyed!

I'm a box freak, too, but I use them only to store ideas for lateral puzzles. =) My husband is alive and well, thank you.
What I want to know is, how did she get him - ahem - reduced to bones? Will that be the subject of your next puzzle?
