I thought the brainteaser below was really tricky – I had to think for several minutes before finding the answer.
I’ve loved riddles and tricky puzzles ever since I was young. My middle school teacher Eva gave us a lot of tricky problems, like optical illusions and murder mysteries for kids.
It was a welcome break from our normal schoolwork – I loved to stop and really think about how to figure them out.
What Eva taught me is still with me today. I still take time out of my day to just forget about my everyday life, and sit down with a cup of tea and a crossword or a puzzle. I think we need more brain exercise in this day and age!
