I know you all are very serious in your English language learning, but every once in awhile it’s nice to do something fun.  So, today let’s talk about riddles!!!  Riddles are little language puzzles.  Usually a statement or question that has a double meaning.  Leave me a comment with a riddle that you have heard before and like a lot.

Here are some of my favorite riddles:

1.  It walks on four legs in the morning, two legs at noon and three legs in the evening. What is it?

2.  What is in seasons, seconds, centuries and minutes, but not in decades, years or days?

3.  The more you have of it, the less you see. What is it?

Answer:

2.  The letter N.

3.  Darkness
