Riddles to Rev Up Your Mind Today

Did you sleep too long on your day off yesterday? Is your mind still in first gear? Did you have to buy two cups of insomnia this morning to make it to work? If so, perhaps a riddle or two will wake up your mental capabilities.

  1. I come more softly than a bird and lovely as a flower; I sometimes last from year to year and sometimes but an hour. I stop the swiftest railroad train or break the stoutest tree. And yet I am afraid of fire, and children play with me. What am I?
  2. What has a foot on each side and one in the middle?

Okay, I said a riddle or two, so I will stop with this. How's your thinking this morning?
