‘ello! Remember when we had that riddle?
A nice way to build a rapport with people is to ask them to challenge you with any riddle they can find, its a game you can all play.
The person is so clever for knowing or finding one, and riddles are fun to figure out. It is always a wonderful surprise once you’ve put the request out in the world, and someone complies! It is a good sort of person that plays games with strangers.
Riddles are pesky things, they tend to sink their claws into you mind-tank and lurk there waiting for you to answer them. But oh, the satisfaction when you do!
Here is one a new friend sent to me, as an interesting first text.
I am the beginning of sorrow and the end of sickness.
I am always in risk but never in danger.
You may find me in the sun, but I am never out of darkness
Good luck, and no cheating. Unless you really need to.
