Gesture #5 is over. Here is how it played out:
Chris, we know you are disappointed. But it's not a good day for bike riding. "It is a great day for bike riding."
And so, in a shocking turn of events, it is actually PDX Writer Daily that wins, and that now leads Gestures in Literacy by a score of 3 games to 2. They say a series doesn't start until the home team loses, so let us claim that since we thought you Writer readers would solve this in twenty minutes, and yet since you didn't solve it at all: now we have a series. You are going to have to take it one Gesture at a time, and leave it all on the floor next game, so that you can claw and scrape your way back in, & etc.
Game 6 will be posted soon. And fair warning: we are bringing the thunder. It will be the most almost-readable-but-totally-not Gesture we have ever unleashed on this fair blogspace. Cower. Tremble. Prepare...to enter the Gesture!
