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

Barbeque sounds good!

Too bad we still have all of the freeking snow... Ready for the Brain Bender??(from the handy dandy discount MENSA calendar)


Michael went to the supermarket to buy food for a big barbecue. At the meat counter, he spent half of what he had. In the bakery section, he spent half of what was left plus $10. He then spent half of what was left plus $5 for paper products. He had $5 left so he treated himself to a couple of donuts and a coffee.

How much money did Michael start out with?


And more importantly, where is he liquor/beverage budget for this gig?? What are folks going to drink for heaven's sake?? That's what *I* want to know...

Well, like always, the answers will be found later in the comments. See you then! (And apparently BYOB!)
