Rubber Ducky and Me

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

I may run rings around you
Or escape your clutching grip
Or leave a treacherous trail
That gives a sudden slip.
(If you're not careful!)

You always end up winning,
While I shrink with each new meet:
Our bouts will be my ruin,
But you'll come out smelling sweet.

What am I?




What Next?

Thanks for all your kind comments! Got the idea from all the mornings I hear that familiar "thonk" in the bathroom when someone is showering!

Of course, who said that these teasers needed to be difficult, to be enjoyable to solve. Be careful, now! You may end up laughing and having a good time, now! No matter what your age is! Have a marvelous day, now!

If you had included a reference to it being used after a child's naughty language, I wonder how many people would have had a flashback. (only the seniors!)

I don't usually 'get' riddles. First read-through, didn't get it. Then I examined the title and read it again and voila! got it exactly! It was adorable! Thank you for the opportunity to give riddles a chance!

A MONTH OLD RE-RUN??

CUTE, BUT YOU CAN'T BELIEVE WE FORGOT THE ANSWER SO QUICKLY.

Awww this was really cute! What a good riddle! And well-written too. The title would've really made it even more of a giveaway, but I didn't look at the title until after I got the answer. What fun though!

^^ and lmurry, why claim this is a rerun from a month ago when it simply isn't true? I was here a month ago, and it wasn't a teaser of the day then. Maybe you're confused because people have put comments on it before it was teaser of the day. You know, it is possible to check out teasers that aren't teaser of the day....

Anyways, not expecting he'll see that, but... *shrug*
vlermaAus*

This one was squeaky clean and cute. I liked it.

Imurray I do hope you go back and read the above comment because she does a great job of explaining why there are comments older than the day this became teaser of the day. Check 'em out. Just hit Browse teasers.

But you were right, it is cute. More please.

Great riddle, but the title was a bit too much of a hint.

To all those who didn't get this one in 10 seconds must have slipped on the soap and cracked their heads.

Sometimes I think the titles do too much to give it away... I wonder if it would have been half as easy if I wasn't already thinking about bathtime.
Cute teaser!
GebbieRoseAus*
Dec 10, 2009

Thank you! You're right - the title helps give it away. Better luck next time?

I enjoyed this teaser though as many others have said, it was quite easy and though like a previous poster I don't normally even look at the title (or hint) until after, had I read it I am sure my solve time would have been even shorter. This being said, the teaser is great for our younger Braingle members or those of with children (I'll be giving this to them later).

Like I said before under my other handle VERY EASY.
