What Do You Do When It’s Freezing Cold? (Riddle)

Polar Vortex

Misproject font by Misprinted Type (fontsquirrel.com and misprintedtype.com)

It has four letters, but it’s not a bad word.

It can get your mind off the weather and take you to another world.

It’s something to do all by yourself.

It’s fun for ages zero thru infinity.

It (probably) doesn’t require transportation.

It’s an activity that more people should do more often.

It’s about to be spoiled, so if you don’t want the answer yet, don’t look down.

It’s read and you should do it today. 🙂

Photo Puzzle: What in the World Is This?

Puzzle Photo 2

I was browsing through a photo gallery and this caught my eye.

I knew what the foreground was, but the background didn’t seem familiar at first.

The reason I didn’t recognize the background initially was that it didn’t seem to be a logical match for the foreground object.

When I recognized the foreground object, I was thinking of all the possible places that it could have been, and the puzzling part was that this background didn’t seem possible.

SPOILER ALERT. I will soon say exactly what both the foreground and background are.

The foreground object is our new cat, which you may recognize from a previous post.

The background is the television. That’s why I didn’t recognize the background at first.

Once I realized that the cat was standing up in front of the t.v., I recognized the background image.

My daughter was playing a video game with her Nintendo Wii.

You see this image on the t.v. when the player is in the Mii settings.

The cat jumped up onto the entertainment center, stood up, and was pawing at one of the characters.

Naughty kitty, we have proof that you were up to no good.

At least, I didn’t have to hire a detective. 🙂

I expect you recognized the cat pretty quickly. You probably didn’t recognize the video game unless you’ve seen someone playing it before. If not, did you realize it was a t.v.?
