The Answers

Wow!!!! So many fabulous answers! Thank you to all of you who gave it a try, and don't feel bad if you didn't get the answers right to the riddles, I must admit, when I first guessed, I was WAY off :D I just wanted to give out a big virtual piece of cake to everyone who took the time to read them over, get really frustrated, and comment anyway! Lot's of you got some of the answers right, and some of you didn't.

But, as I said before, this was a test to see how smart you really are. And you want to know a secret??? THAT WAS THE FIRST RIDDLE!!! Your intelligence isn't based on how many answers you get right, it's how much effort you put into doing your best. And I suppose this is why I love riddles so much, and why it helps me to stay on track with my writing. :D So, without further delay, here are the answers:

Level: Easy

1. Answer: The Third Door: Lions that haven't eaten in three years are dead!

2. Answer: A "murder" is a flock of crows.

3. Answer: Noon and Bob (basically any "sandwich" word.)

Level: Medium

1. Answer: A bolt of lightning

2. Answer: A lie

3. Answer: An egg

Level: Hard

1. Answer: The army is a rainstorm

2. Answer: The gems are: Amethyst, Emerald ( Emerald City in the Wizard of Oz ), Ruby, Pearl, Diamond, Tiger's eye, Cubic Zirconium (Fake diamond), and Black Opal. Taking the first letter of Amethyst, second of Emerald, etc... spells out "Ambrosia"- The food of the gods.

3. Answer: The question is: "If I ask the other person which road is safest, which will he tell me to take?" It doesn't matter which one you go up to, because then you simply do the opposite. Example: If you go up to the knight (who always tells the truth), and ask him this, he will tell you what the knave (who always lies) will say, and vice versa. If the knight says "the ___ road" then he will have told you what the knave will say, which is a lie (and vice versa). By doing the opposite, you will avoid danger :D (I save the best for last)

Bonus: Your name

That's my post for today, but it's FRIDAY!!!! So, I'll have lots of time to write, read, and blog over the next few days. Thanks again, and check in soon!!!! TGIF, and have a good weekend everybody! :D *Smile*
