Brain Teaser...

Paul brought these little mind benders home last night. He handed them to me and said, "See how you do, I could only get 12." I felt the spirit of competition sweep over me. So I hunkered down for well over an hour. Sad to report... I could only get 7... and a half. Sheesh.

Here's an example of what the riddle stands for- I made one up for you all.

* 2- S in a G L. (2- Shots in a Grande Latte.)

WOW ALLIE!!! I got seven and a half. Were you working on them for a while?

Here's the last one you're missing... 11 players on a football team. (On the field at least.)

Great Job! And thanks for playing.
