These are all unusual representations of words, phrases or things. Can you figure them out? One posted answer per person, please.

3. Starting line, I think, having also considered false start and start-stop, but staggered start could also work... smile

(four guesses for the price of one grin)

A few more thoughts: shaky beginning, slight start, stuttering/hesitant/jerky start, slow start, five point start/handicap, extended opening, long introduction, unimpressive start, ...in the beginning (long ago, and probably in a galaxy far, far away...) crazy

(This is the moment when Cheryl comes in with the right answer and makes it seem obvious!)

She lives in Minnesota, so, you know, Super Bowl.

I did consider jump start but could not see it as fitting the image, and if this is a US sporting term, I may as well give up! wink

or "starting line" (where race starts)

If "start" represents a sign: sign on the dotted line

Where are you Cheryl?!

Unfortunately, Cheryl is not relaxing. Daughter's baby shower and furnace went out with wind chills -30!
Off the top of my head: start at the right point? crazy

I think I'm going to have to pull the plug on this one. Even Cheryl can't get it! lol

My answer is "initial start". I'll admit that I can no longer find that phrase anywhere, but it existed many years ago when I made this puzzle.

Thanks to all who tried. kissy

That was one of my first thoughts (getting out the 2x4), but I couldn't find it either, so thought it wouldn't be right. lol

At least it kept some of us out of mischief for a while! lol

The framework could also work well using a different word (such as Cheryl's suggestion of "reaction")

As always, Sue's efforts in posting these is much appreciated. catrub
