BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together.

This week’s riddle comes from the popular NPR show, Sunday Puzzle. These can be tough so don’t give up, enlist help if you are stumped. The riddle was submitted by Jared Harvey of Santa Cruz, CA. Good luck!

This week’s brain teaser: Think of a common word in six letters. Write it in lowercase. If you hold up a mirror at its side, the reflection will show the same word. What is it?

HINT: The word isn’t quite a palindrome. Think about which lowercase letters may look different when held up to a mirror. Then break it down bit by bit and you’ll get there.
