For any given value of "alive" - nope. But it's not dead, either.

"Coating" is as good a word as any. It is also the "skin" of something.

For most people, (if they want one) this sort of thing would be "used" once a year. There are other types that are "used" more regularly, perhaps even weekly.

Nope. But you would probably blow air over the once-a-year one....

To consolidate:
It is something that you might use once a year (on the same date every year, though this would perhaps be more for younger people), and you may need to blow across the top of it on this occasion. Can you think of an annual occasion where something like this might be the case? This thing has a top coating which is what you can see. It is organic, though has never lived.

Does this help?

The stalk of a fruit?
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

Yes - I had a meeting that took all day. Project development for a new large scientific consortium. All very hush-hush.....

Well, I think that you're quite close enough without any further clues.



It's a great big nut thing!
