And Now A Break

 Since it's Friday, let's have some fun. 

My daughter has always had a love for riddles, my mom loves jigsaw puzzles, and I love word puzzles. 

Since a jigsaw won't work here, and neither will an interactive word game (check out wordle or quordle if they are also your thing), I am going to leave a few of our favorite riddles. Some of these are going to be groan-inducing, as a warning. 

Let's start with some easy ones:

1. When is a door no longer a door? When it's ajar.

2. What has a bottom at the top? Your legs.

3. Where is the only place where today comes before yesterday? A Dictionary.

Now a little harder:

1. What can fill up a room, but takes up no space? Light.

2. What is so fragile that saying its name breaks it? Silence.

3. What do you lose the moment you share it? A Secret.

Now for some logic riddles:

1. You see a boat filled with people, yet there isn't a single person on board. How? Everyone on board is married.

2. If you are running a race and pass the person in second place, then what place are you in? Second place.

3. What was the biggest island in the world before the discovery of Greenland? Greenland was always the biggest, people just didn't know it yet.

While not as serious as some of my posts have been lately, it's ok to take time for some silliness. No matter if the sky is falling, or some other disaster is occurring. Your mental health deserves a distraction from time to time.

Also, there are some health benefits to this kind of fun. It's been proven that puzzles and games that make you think differently keep your brain healthy.

If you want some more of these, here is where I found most of them

Music Corner

Naturally, today's song had to be about a game. And it gets bonus points from me for being a part of a musical. Pinball Wizard was written by Pete Townsend of  The Who and it may be the most famous track on the "Tommy" soundtrack. Performed by Elton John (and a pair of giant boots) in the 1975 movie.
