Our 'What's This Wednesday' Clue may have been deceptively difficult. It looks like one thing, but ends up being another. Which really is sort of the point, right?

What's This Wednesday Clue: Cori Skall

JStew: When I saw the photo, I immediately thought it was towels. Like, a stack of clean towels. But then I remembered that Cori always says that laundry lives in a pile in their house, so then I knew it wasn't a stack of folded towels. After a few more guesses back and forth by text, I gave up. I was getting colder all the time. Not realizing of course, that's actually part of the deal. Silly me.

Cori: I always have these grand plans to find something AMAZING and take a picture of it in the most creative and interesting of ways...and then life happens-I get pulled into another direction-and totally have to improvise at the last minute! That's exactly what happened this week. I meant to give you greatness, then I reached for a button that fell off my shirt (this is not a joke--it actually happened) and I proceeded to break myself. Apparently the act of reaching for something is just too much for this middle-aged mom-bod to take, and I ended up pulling something in my neck/shoulder. As I sat on the couch, cuddled up with my youngest but silently cursing my stupidity in my head, I realized the afternoon was quickly getting away from me and I had yet to snap my What's This Wednesday pic yet. So I did what I had to: I worked with what I had. The result is this week's clue!

And now, let's gaze upon the answers from the peanut gallery and see how close, or not, that we got.

Kristi Carney Stack of oreos my kid left on the couch after he ate all the creme filling.
Rob Irwin Corn on the cob?? A sweater??? A blanket??

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
