Lewis Carroll must be turning in his grave! The original riddle that has been horribly mangled here is: "Dreaming of apples on a wall, / And dreaming often, dear / I dreamed that, if I counted all, / How many would appear?"

i guessed none, because she only dreamt about apples. that doesn't neccessarily mean they'd be real.

I don't think this is a true riddle, at least in my opinion it's not, there's no true intellectual basis for the answer.....I think it belongs in Trick.

Good teaser though.
