Recently, however, I've discovered a few logic puzzles of my own. I won't present the answers because the joy is in solving them yourself. Both puzzles start with the same scenario:
Due to a recent garbage can attack, you have a wound on the side of your left hip (at belly button level) which has been dressed with Steri Strips. The doctor has informed you that you must keep the Steri Strips dry for 6 days. You are under doctor's orders NOT to shower for those 6 days.
Puzzle 1: You stink. You decide to shower despite the doctor's orders, but you seek to keep the wound dry during the shower. You have the following supplies to utilize before stepping into the shower:
- Non-waterproof band aids
- Saran wrap
- Masking tape
- Duct tape
- A wheel barrow
Puzzle 2: You stink. You have to leave for a meeting in 5 minutes. There's no time to shower. You have the following supplies:
- A sink
- One bar of soap
- One washcloth
Anyone who has spent time with me in the last several days can weigh in here to indicate if I successfully solved the puzzles? If I reeked, I failed.
