The Guessing Game

#43

I’ll start with a “mini biography”.
“Genius and Madness” might be the best description for this man, widely regarded as the greatest of all time in his field.
If he had not died as a result of his drug abuse, he would probably post in these Forums and give us lots of good suggestions. Obviously, if we were willing to endure his arrogant, supercilious, aggressive ways.
Can you guess who he is?

You are perfectly correct, Grapevine. For once we don’t need Whoeverit. :slight_smile:
By the way, your new outfit is absolutely stunning! LOL

My first is in snowball, but never in fight
My second is in morning and also in night.
My third is in grapefruit but does not have pips
My fourth is in snuggles and also in lips.
My fifth is in lizards but not in a zoo
My sixth is a clue on its own, just for you.
Seven is heaven in chocolate, not diets
My last is in kisses and also in kites.

When holding my hand this lover excites me, but often alas, he turns round and bites me!

Can you guess the identity of my often unfaithful lover?

Hmmmm… I dare a guess. Could it be “one’s luck”? The letters seem correct, but maybe you are looking for one word only.

#52

No Miri. Keep guessing :wink:
Good one though!

#53

Mine is an alternative truth!

Could it be “ants luck”? I am not familiar with that expression, but it is the only one I can think of that makes some sense.
If it s wrong, I can only wait for whoeverit to come with the solution! LOL

No, but I will give you a further thought Miri. Imagine a welcome friend arriving at your house who turns out to be a false friend!!

Oh dear, are you waiting for me to move on? Sorry!
I would have never been able to guess “big slick”, because it is an expression I didn’t know. Forgive the foreigner! I had to google it, or you’d have waited for ever.
It happens to me sometimes. I am a passionate fan of cryptic crosswords, in English and German, and when I can’t find the last word despite having almost all letters, I immediately know the word is new to me.
The English language has more than 800,000 words, and I hate not knowing them all! My comfort is that most native speakers don’t use more than 3,000 words, as I read somewhere. LOL
