First of all, I must tell you that everything I write in this post is 100% the truth. Solve the riddle with that in mind ... :)
Yesterday, as I transplanted some purple pansies, a man walked onto our short, dead-end street.
"Would you like some free ice cream?" he called out.
I stood, removed my dirty gardening gloves, and shook them out as I walked toward him. "Wow, that's a proposition that would be crazy to turn down."
He held out a few ice cream sandwiches.
And I thanked him and took them.
From a perfect stranger.
I promise that I had never seen this man before in my life, yet I took ice cream from him--free ice cream--and ate it. Not only that, but I also shared with three of the kids.
And nothing was wrong with it.
Can you figure out the riddle? Why was this behavior okay?
I might send a little prize to the first person to guess the correct answer.
