Seems simple enough

Okay, you brainiacs, here is a brain teaser for you:

WHAT NINE LETTER WORD IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

...is still a word after removing only one letter
...one by one
...until there is only one letter left?
If you think you know it... post a comment below.

Check back on Tuesday for the answer.

OK... it's Tuesday:

My sources say the word is: startling
  • remove the l, and the word becomes: starting
  • remove one t, and the word becomes: staring
  • remove the a, and the word becomes: string
  • remove the r, and the word becomes: sting
  • remove the other t, and the word becomes: sing
  • remove the g, and the word becomes: sin
  • remove the s, and the word becomes: in
  • remove the n, and the word becomes: I

  • **she wipes hands**
