N-10 minutes

I've had the whole weekend to get myself worked up into a state over this stupid flu shot. I just know that this is going to be the time that I scream like a girl and faint.

Mind you, I have embarrassed myself worse ways at work. I have taken the precaution of draining my bladder before I go in there.

Today's mensa puzzle was a fun word ladder. Convert wheat to bread in six (or fewer) steps:

WHEAT
-----
-----
-----
-----
-----
BREAD

For a change my answer matched theirs. I think that there are a limited number of ways to solve this one.

WHEAT
CHEAT
CLEAT
BLEAT
BLEAK
BREAK
BREAD

I like these puzzles more when the solution tells a story. Having it end with "break bread" is mildly satisfying in this case.
