Do you know what I’ve discovered? I’m seriously thinking about moving to Denmark. WW (my husband) and I are thinking about a place to spend our final days and this may be it. I’ve had the trots all week from the IBS brought on by the anxiety caused by congressmen who don’t want to do the right thing and are having a field day over the erratic start of the Affordable Care Act, rather than wanting to lend a helping hand for their fellow man. Yet, they, themselves, have no plan.

Apparently, my IBS would not be a problem in Denmark because not only would my stress be less, but I’d be full of giggles most of the time because according to the Huffingtonpost, healthcare is a civil right and the Danes feel a responsibility towards one another. Can you believe that?
I plan on dropping this relocation bomb on my husband (WW) when he gets home, but until then I need to forget about my intestines’ call to shit and start giggling. So in my search for giggles I discovered a giraffe riddle challenge on Facebook and decided to expand on it.
Have you heard about it? There is a FB page that gives you a riddle. If you answer it correctly, you’re fine—if you don’t, you have to change your profile picture to one of a giraffe for three days—any giraffe.
THE RIDDLE GOES LIKE THIS:
It’s 3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. You have unexpected visitors. It’s your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?
ANSWER: The door or your eyes (from Huffingtonpost/Alexis Kleinman)
AUTHOR’S PIC FOR A GIRAFFE PROFILE JUST BECAUSE I CAN’T BELIEVE THE RESEMBLANCE
But that just made me chuckle—not giggle! So I decided to do a string of riddles for my readers that don’t have anything to do with giraffes or Facebook profiles. If you correctly answer my riddles, you can go on about your business BUT if any one answer is incorrect, then you are encouraged to pick the meme just below the riddle you missed and pass it on to a group of friends that you know could use a giggle. Please note that the answer to each giggle follows the meme underneath the riddle. Good luck, forget about our nasty-ass governmental officials for a while, and happy giggles to all! (Special thanks to WW and brainden.com for the riddles.)
