When I see “monitor” I think of Dale Gribble monitoring the world in his basement while his wife “monitors” John Redcorn upstairs.
LOL!

Greetings Monitor 49. Thanks for clearing things up for me. I was taught by nuns for the first 12 years of my schooling. The nuns taught us not to trust men. Always think the worst, first. Only one monitor is born once a year. You are a very special being. Thank goodness for the TP in your landing area. It is almost 5 o’clock in my time zone. Time for me to respond to BROKEN HEARTED. Of course I have more questions for Monitor 49.  :-X

That roll of TP had/has the consistency of sand paper.  Hopefully the ones in the office restrooms were/are softer.

What can you bring? A nice roll of soft cottony TP?

I can bring anything I can hold, actually, but I must be careful because everything will quickly fade and return to the present.  If anyone in the past sees an item from the future disappear, then my transmute license will be permanently revoked.  (Likewise somebody in the present seeing an object that I have brought from the past disappear.)  Some things will last longer than others.  Coins and rings seem to last awhile.  Getting back to the theme of 100 years ago, I gave Liz a present day diamond engagement ring and she's still got it on her finger.  When I visit her, I make it a point to rub the ring with my transplasm fingers.  This will 'charge' the ring and keep it from vanishing for a couple of days.  Clothes aren't a problem as they will stay 'charged' from being in contact with the transplasm body.  Take them off though, and you might have a problem.  Last August I was in the woods, outside of Liz's folk's dude ranch in the Catskills.  We had ridden some horses in to a beautiful, secluded spot with tall trees and a river.  That is where we got engaged and to celebrate the event, (and also my birthday) we went skinny dipping.  I could only stay in the water for five minutes or so, because I didn't want my clothes to fade away.  Now I would have been in a real pickle, had they disappeared, huh?

Ha! Well you could have explained it away as a prank, but then you would be all uncovered!   ;D

Unfortunately, I'm several slots down the list on that one.  Hey, what happened to the "Team"?  You should be cleaning up on points!

Getting hosed by Mrs T and not in a good way. (I have no idea what a good hosing would be)

It takes time, you have to get in sync with Mrs T. Be patient, you got some points!

Nice! Thank you Rikki for doing this, I hope it is as much fun for you as it is for me!

You are most welcome, @anniem.  It is totally fun for me to put the quiz out.  I have always enjoyed making contests out of everyday subjects.  Also, I used to go to the local library and print out oddball microfilm clippings that I would pin to company bulletin boards.  Lots of fun.
