let's not take this too seriously... but my colleagues enjoyed it, and perhaps you will, too... and Redwine gently badgered me to follow through and post it
Eleanor comes home and is shocked to find Kyle hanging above a puddle.

Does the liquid in the puddle come from human's body? Did Kyle hang attached to something? If yes, did Eleanor detach him? Would Kyle be dead if he hang there for a longer period of time than he did?
Is Kyle alive?

Does the liquid come in bottles? In cans? neither
Does the liquid come from something that melted? no

Psydkik
Is "waiting" a valid synonym for "hanging" in the puzzle statement? close enough –– “hanging” is a euphemism

would you people take a look at my more legit puzzle, “discovery?” and Psydkik, there’s that easter egg in there…

alright then, I hid a pumpkin for you in the thread of "discovery." easter egg is the standard nomenclature, though, but I'm willing to demonstrate some flexibility...

So why the adult, awake, conscious, almost-healthy, not allergic and perfectly capable of cleaning the puddle man did not clean it?
Did Kyle know how to clean the puddle? Was he instructed not to clean it? Did he want to prove a point? Did he want the cat to be given away?

Did Kyle have a cold? Was inertia from the cold another reason for Kyle not cleaning the puddle? Was Eleanor shocked because the whole house was stinking of cat's piss and Kyle did nothing about it?

Was it relevant why the cat piddled on the floor? Had Kyle also failed to clean the kitty litter?

Sleepingbeaver
Did Kyle have a cold? yes Was inertia from the cold another reason for Kyle not cleaning the puddle? no Was Eleanor shocked because the whole house was stinking of cat's piss and Kyle did nothing about it? yes
Was it relevant why the cat piddled on the floor? no Had Kyle also failed to clean the kitty litter? no; he'd done that

Lynne
Are you Kyle? no -- FMOI -- wanted to turn a classic on its head

Redwine
Was Kyle's condition temporary? this, just like this puzzle Permanent?

Sleepingbeaver has pretty much got the scenario, so it's time to put this puzzle to rest.

*******SPOILER*******

Kyle is sitting watching YouTube clips on his laptop, but Ivan, the cat, has pissed on the floor under his chair, leaving a puddle. When Eleanor arrives, she's shocked, and asks, “Could you not tell that the cat had peed underneath you?” and Kyle replies, “What? I have a cold; I can’t smell anything...”


Thanks to all for playing... I hope it was worth your while. As I mentioned, this was rather an inverted homage to the classic, and I had fun with it. Another brisk puzzle coming up soon...

Redwine:
"So why the adult, awake, conscious, almost-healthy, not allergic and perfectly capable of cleaning the puddle man did not clean it?"

Surprised that "was it just because he's male" wasn't one of the next questions! ;-)

Do you think Psydkik wants one? He seems to also be rather lost. But if you found it without a clue, that would be a highlight for me.

Well, I must confess I can't find a pumpkin or an Easter egg :-( I tried highlighting in case you'd written it in white but everything still seemed to be related to the Discovery puzzle.
