Diversions

By 1:55 PM


Every weekday, as Jon and I travel to work we drive by a billboard with a riddle. The riddle usually changes every week or two.

*Today’s riddle: What has 6 legs, 2 heads, 1 tail and four eyes?

Most of the time Jon has the riddles figured out before I can finish reading them, but today I got it before him. It’s a simple riddle—too simple for Jon. Jon is a complex thinker and usually over-analyzes everything. So, this riddle gave him pause. I cannot lie—this gave me a small bit of pleasure.

Regardless of who figures the puzzle out first, I look forward to these small diversions from my day ahead.

What small things divert your attention in a positive way during a busy week? I hope they’re good.



*See tomorrow’s post for the answer to the riddle.
