“What walks on four legs in the morning, two legs in the afternoon, and three legs at night?” inquired the Sphinx. Oedipus, ever the clever Greek tragic figure, was not easily fooled. “Man,” he replied. Then, the Sphinx died, for some reason.

The upcoming riddle’s stakes are a bit lower, that’s for sure, but its answer is similarly difficult to dream up.

If Teresa’s Daughter Is My Daughter’s Mother, What Am I To Teresa?

For clarity’s sake, the relationships mentioned in the above riddle are by blood, and not by the quick and breezy process of Facebook family requests. Fortunately for the riddle-solver, finding the answer will just provide gratification and not the location of a snake, like in this riddle.

The pivot point of the riddle sits on the tongue of question-asker, who happens to be… Teresa’s daughteras confirmed by this diagram from 22 Words.

Now, if you’re still looking for a challenge to keep your brain churning, just try and find the turtle in this photo. It has nothing to do with daughters, but apparently, women can solve it faster than men.
