BosGuy brain teaser

riddle, exercise for your brainEach Friday, 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.

Leave your answer in the comment section. I’ll approve responses later in the day to give people a chance to respond without seeing any spoilers. This week’s riddle is a tough, but don’t be discouraged. The riddle comes from a past episode of NPR’s Sunday Puzzle and was shared by Dan Pitt of Palo Alto, California.


This week’s brain teaser: Take the common abbreviation for a major American city. Insert it inside an airport code for that city. And you’ll name a flower. What flower is it?

Hit me up if you want / need a hint!
