The sphinx in this story…
Has a riddle for you - just like any sphinx that you are going to encounter in your life :) He looks pretty real, this one. Has the body of a cat and the head of a...cat, as a difference to his cousin in Egypt, who doesn’t even remember what his head represents anymore.
Ok, the riddle - On my way to St. Ives I saw a man with 7 wives. Each wife had 7 sacks. Each sack had 7 cats. Each cat had seven kittens. Kittens, cats, sacks, wives. How many were going to St. Ives? (The original riddle also has some cats, what a coincidence!:)
Sphinxes were a popular part of Greek mythology as well, and the philosophers down there didn’t waste any time in inventing some morbid stories about strangulations and deaths caused by sphinxes that didn’t get their riddles solved by passengers. One of the most famous ones is this (Ok, just another one and you get the answer of the first, come on): “Which creature has one voice and yet becomes four-footed and two-footed and three-footed?”
Tough one, eh? But you get the answer for the first one now - it was one person going to St. Ives. Just one - the storyteller :) Let’s hope that our cat-sphinx doesn’t pose too much of a threat with what is going on through his head right now. Don’t think so, actually. He looks like he is going to mind his own business forever :)
Enjoy this one in a meditative state this summer!

Well, for example - let’s say you are a man from the US and your size is 44/36-37. This is equal to 2XL or XXL at our store. The same normally goes for women. Usually, the size difference would be 1-2 sizes between the US and Asian size measurements.
