This Week's Challenge:

"Name certain internal parts of the human body, five letters, the word is plural. This word contains an "i." Change the "i" to an "o," spell the result backward, and you'll name another part of the body that's very near the first ones. What body parts are these?"

This has been consuming my thoughts for two whole days, so much so that it was hindering my daily productivity. I was zoning out of conversations, almost drove straight through a solid red light, and many times I'd just shout out random possibilities, no matter where I was. "RETINA!" Nope that's not gonna work, it's got to be plural. But we do have two of those so does that count? Probably not. Plus RETINA spelled backwards replaced with an "o" is ANOTER and from what I can remember from high school biology, there aren't any ANOTERS floating around in our body. "SPINE!" Again probably not because of the plural issue but the spine is comprised of many discs so maybe-- "DISCS!!!" Ok what does that spell backwards with an "o". S-C-S-O-D...Shucks! DAMN IT! THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!! Ok I'm done thinking about this. Time to move on and focus on something else. "PENIS!" Oh wait, it has to be an internal organ. Ah Crimeny! I give up.

I had no choice but to resort to one of the most intelligent people I know (Peter) and within hours I received the answer. I've typed out the answer in the comments section of this post for those of you who want to know. And for those of you who don't......GOOD LUCK!!!
