Thank you all!

Alas, I see @Lindzy Herbrand got to it first, but was a victim of moderation, so over to her!

Her post just wasn't there before (at least not to anyone but mods/admin). I believe they've got quite a backlog right now. :(

@Gravy @Lunastella no worries! Posts are being approved out of order…not your fault you couldn’t see what wasn’t there lol

New riddle:

You can break me down into something shorter,
Or you can make me into something longer.
I have an end you are likely to enjoy,
And a beginning you might not like to see.
What am I?

:clap: good one, but it is not a type of story.

Hint 2: Even though you can’t touch me (intangible), I can be measured.

@Maria Andrea Fernandez What a beautiful name!!!! "Maria" is my favorite female name - "Andrea" is the name of my great niece, and "Fernandez" is the last name of one of my best friends in high school

@Stephanie_Chapman not a URL, @DATo not any kind of housework

Riddle:
You can break me down into something shorter,
Or you can make me into something longer.
I have an end you are likely to enjoy,
And a beginning you might not like to see.
What am I?

Hint 1: You cannot physically touch me.
Hint 2: Even though you can’t touch me (intangible), I can be measured.
Hint 3: I can also serve as a measurement, but you won’t find me on a tape measurer.

Oh, thank you! 🥰
It's a pretty common name in my country. Both are the names of my grandmothers. One of my dad's side and the other of my mom's. And my last name simply means "daughter of Fernando" LOL.
By the way, housework is quite a good guess 👍
