My nocturnal seekers of mystification — it is I, Miss Teria, your hostess of the Night of the Unknown.
Each third Friday of the month, an item too unusual to fit into an exhibit will be unveiled, along with a guest of my choosing.
I’ll test your mettle by giving you clues about the mystery object. Guess correctly and you will be welcomed into the Christian mansion for free. From the shadows, I will evaluate your guesswork, and I won’t be kind. Only the most resourceful and brightest will ever succeed in impressing me.
The first event took place on Friday, September 16th 2016. Party goers had access to these hints prior to the event.
The answers are: CLUE 1: Paul Bunyan; CLUE 2: foot; CLUE 3: doctors; CLUE 4: small vials, specimens; corn[s]
I can now reveal that our very first object was a podiatry collection that was donated in 1953. Intended to be donated to the National Chiropodist museum, it fell into our hands instead.
The collection includes a lovely selection of ingrown toenails, bunions, planter warts, and calluses. The formaldehyde in the small vials has evaporated over time but the beauty of the specimens is undiminished.
Until next time,
