"What is ___?"
I couldn't answer her.
The situation amused me, so I told him about her questions.
Hilarity ensued.
Later, he answered for me and I learned something new.
You know the rest.
What am I talking about?

my LatVenture is nowhere near done, I just decided to run a hopefully quicker puzzle as well to amuse those not of the Lateral Adventure persuasion =)

Emailing when? Although you probably do know, I haven't gotten your email yet. But you're more likely to know about this than anyone else who posts regularly here, true. Still, questions from other mes amis lateraux (or however Doriana kitteh said it) would still be nice...

Ok, let's see where I can start...

I = my dearest cheezfriend Kaylee kitteh?
her = H/A/F? are all "her"s referring to the same person? Is she a friend of yours? family? an LTPF member?
he = H/A/M? are all "he"s referring to the same person? Is he a friend of yours? family? an LTPF member?

LTPF relevant at all? internet relevant? facebook?

Relevant how much later "later" is? seconds? minutes? hours? days? months? years?

Must be tortiesibling, then!

In the puzzle statement I can only find two "he"s, but in your answer there's "one of them" and "the other two" - is confused kitteh!

Is Balin one of the "he"s? If so, the one whom you told about her questions? The one who answered for you?

Is a particular puzzle relevant? If so, are you the host? tortiesibling? Balin? The other he? someone else? Is "What is ____?" the puzzle statement?

Hmm... we wouldn't be talking about Woubit would we? I may have misspelled the name.

Hmm... we wouldn't be talking about Woubit would we? I may have misspelled the name. we would indeed! =) and no you did not. woubit, founder of woubits inc., pedants to the gentry, is indeed the LTPF member spoken of in that line. Now there's only one more to figure out, the HAM whose puzzle enlightened me as to the meaning of woubit's name. (Although woubit himself expanded on it at another point.)

no, Peter has been much more active than the gentleman in question as of late. In fact, I think woubit's been here more recently than our missing H/A/M has...however, the title is relevant (as it is in most Kaylee kitteh puzzles)

That'd be Woodworm then . Didn't he once run a puzzle whose solution rested on the fact that a woubit is some sort of feeding larva much like a woodworm in fact?

Also I seem to recall that Borax was Woodworm's gift in woubit's Christmas 2008 puzzle exactly so...someone obviously asked for a present that would be a treat for Woodworm, but he ended up with a treatment for woodworm - the usual Christmas misunderstanding, I think woubit called it.

So this, then, is the ***SPOILER***...here, for sake of interest, is Tortie's and my emailed conversation to Balin, dating from the days just after she joined the LTPF and posted her first puzzle, when I still had the idea that woubit ought to be called 'mr. woubit' because I saw someone else doing it...

Tortie: what's woubit
Tortie: ?
Kaylee: mr. woubit is a very fine puzzler indeed
Kaylee: and he is a woubit
Tortie: ok
Tortie: what is a woubit
Kaylee: he is
Kaylee: I do not know, you may ask him
Tortie: in the sense that something is woubit-y
Tortie: ...
Kaylee: if something is woubit-y, it has the appearance or likeness of mr. woubit, who is a woubit, and does woubit puzzles
Tortie: ok
Tortie: that was what I was afraid your answer might be
Kaylee: in any case, Balin's puzzle is woubit-y because it reminds one of mr. woubit's puzzles
Tortie: thanks
Tortie: got it
Kaylee: as does yours actually
Tortie: really?
Kaylee: yes
Tortie: hehehehe
Kaylee: it is a high compliment:
Kaylee: woubit-y: adj. 1. pertaining to or having the likeness of mr. woubit
Tortie: lol
Kaylee: 2. being very difficult and lateral, as mr. woubit's puzzles always are

Also, "you know the rest" was a clue to woubit's identity and to Christmas puzzles, being his currently limbo-ed Christmas puzzle.

Well I liked all of it but the conversation really made me chuckle. It had a touch of the 'Who's on first?' about it.

Other than switching our YIM handles to our better-known names here, yes. It does have a touch of 'Who's on first', doesn't it? Hehehe. Hey, Tortiesibling, what do you want us to bring over for Thanksgiving? Not the turkey, I hope. (We can't have Gobble. He's only big enough for a turkey sandwich...and he's all stuffing =P)
