Bob's old high school friend, the one he was talking to, was named Annie. The sleeping in his underwear part was a nice distractor though Makes the casual reader assume its another guy.

I have a number of roses for sale. The first buyer bought half of my roses then I gave him additional one for free. The second buyer bought half of the remaining roses then I gave him additional one also for free. The third buyer also bought half of the remaining roses then I gave him additional one also for free, this time all of my roses has been sold out.

How many roses do I have?
I have to go with Greendruid here. I was going to say zero before I saw he'd posted. You said: "How many roses do I have?" When you're sold out, you have none. But anyway...I was too late either way.

Okie dokie.

I agree that the verb tense in the last sentence seems wrong and does give the "zero" answer. Scorecard updated.

What can run but never walk, has a mouth but never talks, has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps?

You guys can tell I like the riddles best!

I'd guess flowers or a deck of cards. Either one works well with the wording.

A deck of cards is what I was looking for. You're up!
