I got it! Took me a minute but once you see it, it's glaringly obvious.
And I *think* I just did my first rep point thingie and sent rugcat the answer.

I know what it is, but can't remember what they're called. Mind you these words are almost them...they're each missing one letter that would make them it. Confused yet?

Hmm. Does Kitrianna do them one better, and would Anna fit in that list?

I'm not going to admit how long it took me, but I had to stare at it for quite a while and I think I FINALLY got it.

OK folks, here it is.

A whole bunch of you saw that if you dropped the first letter, what remains is a palindrome -- it reads the same forward and backward.

But almost no one took it one step further -- if you take off the first letter and put it on the end of the word, you then have the identical word spelled backward.

Now that's self evident, but I can't give full credit to those who failed to specifically mention that -- that's really the neat thing about it.

(B) anana (B)

(U) neven (U)

If it makes anyone feel better, I didn't get it either.
