Question

So...first riddle. It's really easy :), and I made it during one my classes so...yeah. Gotta start somewhere and harder riddles will come later. Hope it's not solved in one post though...

There's many of me of that I'm sure.

Of any shape and size.

During need I'm at your leisure

Should the moment arise.

I grow sometimes to meet the leaves

I shrink to meet demands.

I'm like a dog that's meant to retrieve

Except I don't have hands.

During holidays I'm brought out,

And make things rather bright.

On those days I'd like to shout,

I'm the bringer of the light

There are those who would make bets,

That I'm a danger to you.

Spilling black reflections indoors wet,

For shame, it's all untrue.

Come on, I'm not that rare at all

Believe me I wouldn't lie.

But you shouldn't stand too very tall

Unless you'd like to DIE!

Hmm...perhaps electricity would be the good alternative, and the third paragraph seems to relate too well, but not the answer. The other paragraphs might bring you higher to the answer.

Except for "indoors wet", each word should interpreted by itself. They all have something in common...:)

The letter L? Or maybe the letter I?

Hahaha. Nice try. My bad about the previous clue. "indoors wet" is part of the group that they all have in common. It's just that it those two words are together as a single entity.

Yeah, that was a very wild guess at best... I shall mull over this one in my sleep and come up with a better answer tomorrow. Don't worry, for a first riddle, this is awesome! :thumbsup: I remember my first one. I do believe it was solved in, like, 2 posts.... :dry:

Good guesses Guppy :), but not the answer :P.

And step and step and step I go,

All the way up, all the way down.

If you'd speak the title you would know,

That I am just a noun

(And yes the last line of hint was kinda just thrown in there to rhyme :P)

When I first read the title, I misread it thinking it said chutes so I thought ladders. Not sure how it fits everything though.

Actually, after reading it again, it does make more sense.

And my first riddle is solved by Thalia! Thank you all for guessing.

There's many of me of that I'm sure. -well there are

Of any shape and size. -well there are

During need I'm at your leisure -yeah

Should the moment arise. -yeah

I grow sometimes to meet the leaves -this could be cleaning out gutters or reach trees.

I shrink to meet demands. -they do

I'm like a dog that's meant to retrieve -stereotypical firetruck ladder get cats

Except I don't have hands. -or perhaps ladders do have hands

During holidays I'm brought out, -they are

And make things rather bright. -indirectly speaking

On those days I'd like to shout, -without a ladder you cant go high and hang up

I'm the bringer of the light -i guess this verse wasn't that good

There are those who would make bets, -They would

That I'm a danger to you. -bad luck

Spilling black reflections indoors wet, -spilling salt, black cats, breaking mirrors, opening umbrellas indoors

For shame, it's all untrue. -i don't think it's true but spilling is a waste and breaking mirrors and opening umbrella inside is dangerous

Come on, I'm not that rare at all -many households have one

Believe me I wouldn't lie. -because ladders have been the biggest liars since their creation

But you shouldn't stand too very tall -should not stand on last step of any ladder. very dangerous

Unless you'd like to DIE!

Edit: Not sure why text is small. Can't fix it. Oh well :/

Nice Thalia! I see how it fits about 90% of the clues, but the others, I'm still in the dark. Jip, do you mind explaining?

Well, I explained it in the earlier post of mine. Which part do you need explained?
