Tricky riddle of the day: Who was the doctor to the boy?

Solving a riddle might take you back to when you were a child. During that time, your only responsibility was to challenge yourself every day, either physically or mentally.

Or maybe it’s other types of puzzles that do the job for you. Like for example, Sudoku and Crosswords, as both have been a part of newspapers for decades now.

Riddles are a great way to tease the mind, something essential to keep it sharp and fresh. In addition, you get to challenge friends or family and share a good memory with them.

In the same way that you need to exercise your body regularly, the brain requires constant and focused workouts.

Of course, we use the mind all the time at work and school. But think about these responsibilities as a marathon, and brainteasers as the workouts that will let us cross the finish line.

A good ‘ol riddle

Riddles have been gaining momentum ever since the internet became a thing. They are a quick and easy way to test yourself and take a break from all the worries and stress.

To solve them, it is important to pay attention and concentrate. Just like any other brainteaser.

Today, I’ve brought you a riddle I found online earlier this week. Are you up for the challenge?
