… and why I now have this picture on my Facebook Profile today.For those of you who don’t know, there is a riddle going around the Facebook universe here recently.
It involves a riddle … and not an easy one.Well, maybe easy.
The idea goes something like this: Once you see / receive the riddle, you are to respond with the answer. To the person who asked it.
And you are to send the answer to that person in a message or email … anything but putting the answer out on the Facebook post where everyone can see it.
I will say, it was an interesting riddle.
The deal is, if you answer the riddle incorrectly, then you have to change your Facebook Profile picture to a Giraffe … for three days … or one day … it depends on who is doing the asking it seems.
So … being a good little Facebook fan … I was asked by Person #1 to answer the riddle.
Okay … I must explain here.
I did the riddle. I answered the riddle.
And got it right (according to Person #1 who asked).
[ insert wild applause for The Author here for her obviously intelligent abilities]
I then proceeded to brag / gloat / high-five / etc everywhere i could find.
A short time later, Person #2 asks Holly the same riddle.
Holly confidently gives SAME ANSWER.
Holly is told by person #2 that the answer is WRONG. And gives a completely different correct answer.
What the …. ??
So now, I wonder, do I put a giraffe picture out there for 3 days? 1 day? or C – none of the above?
My friend Kristi … one of the folks I gloated to … suggests half a giraffe.
I suppose half a giraffe is better than … well …
And the helpful comments began.
Friend Kristi: I think you picked the wrong half of the giraffe!
Hello … Ms. Out-Of-The-Box thinker here.
Younger Brother: Yes, your butt looks big in those pants…
Oh, ha ha ha. Well, I have been meaning to go on a diet.
Texas Linda: That pattern does not do you any favours.
Ok. So does everybody have it out of their system now?
Gosh, I hope not. Every time someone “likes” it or posts it makes me laugh.
And I do like to laugh.
PS – If you want to do the riddle thing yourself, just go to my Facebook Page, as ask. I’ll send it to you.
