Wonderful answers! I'm sending Flo back to the drawing board just for a tweak. Niki got #8. Sondi, try again. wave

Good answer, Marian! wave

Bob, feel free to answer, please. I'll tell people to try again, but that doesn't give them dibs. smile

That's correct! smile

I realize that some things are said differently in different places (french fries vs chips), so Flo's answer might also have been correct. smile
