Brain Teasers - Mess with your mind
How many people are in this picture?
My Mom’s nemesis was magic, for the life of her she needed to know ’how’ everything was done, would get frustrated when she couldn’t figure it out, yet seemed drawn to it like moths to a flame. She had to watch David Copperfield on TV, trying to figure out where the elephant went. I think if she was alive now Criss Angel ’Mind Freak’ would be the show she’d love to hate. She’d watch it, cuss at the TV, swear it was all fake, yet turn in to next weeks’ episode.
Mine is brain teasers. Brain teasers of all sorts, I love them yet have such a difficult time figuring them out. I will hunt them down, only to be disappointed when I can’t figure them out. Sudoku makes me nuts but I can’t turn away from them. I manage to ruin everyone I see, particularly in someone elses newspaper that is carelessly laid around . I can do the easy one’s with no problem, but head into the more difficult ones, and I’m lost. Occasionally I will get one right, but I think that is more dumb luck than anything else.
I like to make my mind work, but for some reason brain teasers just escape me. I’m not sure if I try to hard to work them out, and end up making things more difficult than they need be. But that is neither here nor there, I thought I would share some fun teasers with you.
