I told you these were old.

Brothers and sisters have I none but that man's father is my father's son. Who am I?

It's you - an only child - talking about your son.

Now, which came first - the chicken or the egg?

Yep.

The chicken came first.

What is the significance of 12-13-14?


When the day after tomorrow is yesterday, today will be as far from Wednesday as today was from Wednesday when the day before yesterday was tomorrow. What is the day after this day?

12-13-14 is supposed to be a popular wedding date. Many brides figure their husbands might remember that anniversary date! What's important though is that it's the last sequential calendar date in this century.

I might have read the second one wrong (it IS hard to follow) but I think it's Monday.



Or maybe midnight on Saturday (since it seems that it has to be three days away from Wednesday).

The significance of 12-13-14 is it's my wife's 34th wedding anniversary and the anniversary of the death of a bachelor.

It is neither of those days.

In my house that would be 5-30-15. But I'll never admit to calling it the death of a bachelor!!

So what day is it? Thursday?

And here's one I made up just for this TPT thread:

Iíll last all your lifetime
You can hold me for some time
Run fast and youíll hear me
Run cold and youíll see me
Take me and live, deny me and die
You can also catch me, so Ö what am I?

Back when she got married who would have thought of our anniversary being 12-13-14?
It is Thursday.

Breath.
