I'm thinking "mem" (I don't know how to get the accent above the "e" in on a discussion forum post) <br><br>Edit: Maybe I should say why, I'm thinking that: it was the first sign or symbol used to represent the consonant "m." It is spelled "mem" and it means "water" - I guess that is where the black, blue, and grey would come into the riddle? Hmm, just a guess.<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by MrsJonnyCat on 11/15/02 01:01 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
