Polk Moms

Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.

Sometimes we need a little mental boost to our day.  I found a Mental Flexibility Test that could keep us busy for days as well as being fun and challenging.

I did a version of the test with 30 questions about 10 years ago and really enjoyed picking it up and down.  At the link, there are actually 105 riddles to solve.

Would you all like to work on this together? 

We can post the answers as we come up with them.  If you want to work on it at home, alone, then keep us updated on your progress and don't scroll down to other posts added to this discussion until you are finished.

The answers may be online so please don't cheat.  : )

Funny, after 10 years, I can still look at some of the questions and they are ingrained in my brain.  Some of the others, the additional questions have my mental wheels a churning. 

You can find the rules at the above link.   The clues I posted below.  If you have an answer for a clue, add the number with it.  Have fun!  : )
