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

Out to sea....

Boy does that ever sound good today - just bugging out and hitting the waves. No oceans near by and other duties call, unfortunately. But we can still play a little! Here is today's Brain Bender....


Bob's boat is moored at low tide. The boat's ladder has eight rungs exposed. If the tide rises eight feet and the rungs are a foot apart, how many rungs will be exposed at high tide.


Yup, hanging out on Bob's boat sounds like a heck of a lot more fun than what is in store for me this afternoon. Oh well, as the saying goes "There's no rest for the wicked and the righteous don't need any." The answer will be found in the comments later. Happy Friday!

Update: Friday's official smartypants award is shared by Rave from Quid Nunc and CTG from Not Exactly Rocket Science! Whoohoo!
