I have had this answer in mind all day, but was intimidated because of how difficult I thought it would be to make. In the end I'm VERY proud of how it turned out. Hope you like it. I foresee this one being tough.


Two people came to a fork in the road.
I was there, and on they strode.
Their hands were swishing back and forth,
As one went south and the other went north.
The one had noticed a chill in the air,
I was there, and she let down her hair.
The other was hungry and found a scone.
He ate me, and the rest was thrown.

You're right. This is a good one... Have to give it some thought...

I like how your mind is working. Thank you for taking a stab at it. i was beginning to think people didn't even know what to think.

It isn't either of those. That last line, will be hard to think up. But, I don't know, just keep thinking. : )

I also got to say that I love your riddles. I think, though, that your mind works just enough different than mine that I can't quite wrap my head around them. Quite frustrating, but at least it gets me thinking.

Here, I've pointed out key words, things to really ponder what the answer is. Realize that the personified answer only mentions himself three times. Think about what those three things are. They are one and the same. What is in bold print is important information. The rest brings the whole thing together.

Spoiler for my first guess of the morning

good morning. I'm about to hit the hay. The answer is not right. But, think on this. While the answer has one general meaning. All three "clues" in the riddle are different variations on the same word. A little different than my usual bit.
