  6. For the last puzzle, I thought that at first but then figured that would make it way too easy. I guess I should have stuck with my instinct.

    For todays, I would say a painting because a painter never seems to be satisfied with most paintings of theirs. Therefore, it's not complete until the painter is completely satisfied. (Yes, I know I'm wrong.)
