[kalira] Dial M

Postby kalira » Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:24 pm

A cool drink was not quite enough. It seems the investigation is the tipping point. And I guess we have overlooked something that came after.

Well let's see how this goes :) Been a while! Hopefully this isn't too painful :lol: :oops:

Hi!
M for murder? Is a murder relevant? A cool drink: any chilled beverage? An alcoholic beverage? One specific beverage? Cool=cold? Awesome? Emotionally distant? Drink=drinking water? Beverage? Body of water? Stream? Investigation: of a crime? By law enforcement? We=law enforcement? Criminals? Is a crime relevant? Came after: in time? In space? Something: an event? An object?

Good to see you again!

Just a thought - do "cool drink," "investigation," and "something that came after" refer to three different of the same thing? (such as three movies, three albums, that type of thing) If not, do any two of those?

Was the drink not quite enough for a person? For accomplishing something? Was the drink drunk? Was it used to cool someone? Or something?

Was the drink in a relevant container? Was the drink relevantly put into a container? Poured out of a container? Spilled? Was a container relevantly damaged? Destroyed? Opened? Closed? Weight of the drink relevant? Does the cool, non-carbonated drink contain: caffeine? Juice? Artificial flavors? Artificial colors? Sugar? HFCS? Non-sugary artificial sweetener? Alcohol? Dairy? Ice?

Does "a cool drink" refer to "one specific instance of the drink" or "the drink in general"? (for example, "a specific glass of Coke" versus "Coca-Cola")
Is the drink tea? Iced tea? Ice-T relevant?

Did a cool drink certainly exist? Was a cool drink offered? Did the drink contain coffee? Tea? Chocolate?
