I noticed that today is Elton John's birthday. I found the inspiration I was looking for.
You see, the other day, I was leafing through a codewords puzzle book and noticed that - near the back of the publication - there was a puzzle which had a picture of the musician on the grid. The first words in the puzzle were obviously going to be 'ELTON' and 'JOHN', so I thought to myself 'that'll be easy when it's time to do this puzzle'.
I didn't expect to fill it in until months from now. However, seeing as Elton John is the man of the moment - with his birthday being the top trend on Twitter as of the time of writing - I thought I'd do the puzzle today and time myself.
So, just like I used to do with the Kriss Kross puzzles, I'll show you an image of the page before and then - hopefully - I'll follow that up with an image of the completed puzzle with the time it took me written above it.
Anything under twenty minutes is the current goal I set myself whenever I fill in these kinds of puzzles.
Now, I am going to try to complete the puzzle....
I was a little over my target of at least 19:59 with 22:19. Still, not TOO BAD.
Can you guess whose music I listened to while completing the puzzle?
If the first name you thought of was 'Elton John', you're incorrect.
