My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

No not me, just the unfortunate chicky-poo in today's Brain Bender....

Ready? Here we go!


Meg's local train station is one mile away from her house. It takes her 10 minutes to bike there. Today, Meg got a flat tire 12 minutes before the train is scheduled to arrive. Her maximum walking speed is 4 miles per hour.

Can she make the train on foot?


I cannot imagine this taking long to answer. So just for fun, let's see what happens to Meg on the way, shall we? Answer (and alternative scenarios) to be found in the comments later. Have fun!
