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

Going to the Airport...

Nope, not me. Just the guy in today's Brain Bender... Who writes these questions??


Eddie is driving his car to the airport to pick up his wife. At his current speed, he'll arrive on time. If he drives 5 miles per hour faster, he will arrive 12 minutes early, but if he drives 5 miles an hour slower, he'll arrive 15 minutes late.

How far away is the airport?


And more importantly, what is Eddie's wife going to do when she sees a strange woman's earring on the floor when she gets in, Huh?? That's what I want to know...

Okay, you know how to play. Answers and scenarios will be found in the comments later...

Update: Friend and reader Rich Blank is the winner of the smartypants sticker for this one. He even went above and beyond, providing the mathematical proof for us! Thanks Rich!
