Yes, I am afraid it is true. Although my blog is called Riddle Me This and sometimes there are Ramblings of a Riddler. I am, in fact, no riddler. This was proven the other day when I was unable to solve a riddle on demand. All I wanted was my lunch.
I arrived at Potbelly's, excited that I had found one close to work, and even more excited about their dreamy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. As I was waiting for my sandwich to come out, the overly excited and irrationally happy counter guy announces:
OEIHCG: We've been waiting ALL day for you to arrive!
Me: [blank stare]
OEIHCG: In fact, we cooked up this riddle just for you!
Me: [wondering if he knows I have a blog called Riddle Me This]
OEIHCG: Do you think you can answer the riddle?
OEIHCG: Oh, come on, give it a try! I promise it is easy.
Me: It doesn't look easy - look there is math in it! I don't do math.
OEIHCG: You don't have to do math, that is the trick.
Me: I don't know...
OEIHCG: It is really simple - try not to think too hard.
Me: Um, I don't even think this hard at work.
Me: [no, really that is true]
Taking pity on me, and probably due to my total lack of participation, he gave me the answer. All I could think at the time was - I am no Riddler. Of course I never claimed to be a Riddler exactly. I do not post riddles and all the people doing google searches for riddles regarding ants in the carpet and elevators were probably disappointed to end up here and here.
So, it is really no surprise that I could not solve the riddle. B, however, insisted that it ruined the whole effect of my blog. I think he has read it once. And he could not solve the riddle either. We are a riddleless couple I suppose.
Can you solve it?
How many bricks does it take to complete a 4' x 4' x 2' wall?
Remember - no math and don't think so hard. It would also help if you were good at solving riddles. And if you are, or better yet, if you are good at making up riddles, let me know. I have a few google searches I need to address.
*yes, I still get to keep the title. It is my blog after all.
