I Have to Apologize!

To G3.

You see, today is his birthday.

His 11th birthday to be exact.

And I didn't get to post birthday wishes on my blog until now (late afternoon on Thursday).

I could tell you what happened but it's a long story that involves a cell phone problem that started back in July.  I won't bore you with the details.

Some of you may remember that G3 is my "riddle" buddy. He calls me from time to time with a new joke or riddle. I hardly, if ever, come up with the right answer.  I have riddles for him from time to time too. He however, being the super smart kid he is (no brag, just fact), comes up with the right answers on many occasions.

So, late as this may be - in honor of G3's birthday, here are a few birthday riddles I found online.

What do birthday invitations say? (if you give up, the answers are below.)

If you have 11 birthday candles and you light all of them at the same time, which one will burn up first?

Why do we cut the birthday cake?

Why do we blow candles out on birthday cakes?

Give up? Here are the answers -

Invitations don't say anything - you have to read them.

None of them. Candles burn down.

Because cakes don't have zippers.

Because, if you threw water on a birthday cake it would ruin it.

Happy Birthday, G3! I hope your day was wonderful!

Love, Granny
