Well, it's a matter of semantics as some windows are made of glass and that goes with statement, "...that I can use to see through...". A window may be just an open area with nothing in it so statement also fits if you just put a "hole" in the wall. No biggie. :)

Need a hint? :) That means that I'm getting better at making up riddles!!

Let me know if you guys need a hint... I don't want to spoil the riddle for you guys by posting a hint without actual proof that the riddle is too hard.......... or too bad....

I'm not sure I understand your question... But since this thread is dying: The answer is that there are no E's in it...

Open!! Anyone can post for the moment! Who will be first though? :)

Mmm?
I'm full?
Am I getting close?

Why does it make it wrong that there are no E's in the sentence?


What makes it *Strange is that "E" is the most common letter in the English language.. it's not very often you come across a full sentence without any E's in it....
