I do love solving analogies...don't you? They're like riddles, aren't they? Here's one. See what you think.
Santa Claus is to Little Boy Blue
Christmas is to ___________.
Got it? Not yet? Need a clue? Maybe a review of the nursery rhyme will help.
Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn
The sheep's in the meadow, the cow's in the corn
But where is the little boy who looks after the sheep?
He's under the haystack fast asleep.
Figured the analogy out yet? No?
Well, join me tomorrow with a bag of butterscotch chips, a bag of Chinese noodles, a microwavable bowl, and some waxed paper and we'll enjoy a tasty riddle-like Christmas morning treat together!
For now, lets let Little Boy Blue snooze. That sheep-keeping is tough business.
