    Well I got 4,5, 18 &23 wrong.  I thought the walker was a ‘dummy’, the hamburger roll the ‘aubergine’ (it sounded like food, or an argyle sock) – the baby pacifier a ‘bap’, and the eggplant– yes, a zimmer frame.  With that sleek black covering the eggplant always looks to me like a black blimp, and ‘zimmer frame’ seemed most appropriate.
