Sometimes what you’re looking for is right in front of your eyes.

Have you ever been tearing your house to bits looking for your sunglasses or keys and when you finally find them, minutes or even hours later, they’re sitting pretty on your head or tucked into a pocket in your purse?

I know I have, and as soon as I discover these items, in plain sight, I always end up feeling like a complete buffoon.

This brand of bimbo behavior reminds me of a question that completely stumped me recently, and it was a question most 6-year-olds can answer in seconds on an admissions test for first grade — and I graduated college! With honors!

Then when I found out the answer, I really felt like a dork.

This puzzle, featured below, is going viral because it’s made quite a few smarty-pants feel like simpletons. Within the puzzle is a mistake. It seems impossible to spot — however, the answer is actually so obvious, and kind of funny. Once you realize the answer you’ll literally laugh out loud — if you don’t go crazy from frustration beforehand.

Take a look at the puzzle and see if you can figure it out…

Here is the puzzle. Try to find the mistake. (We'll tell you what it is at the bottom of the post.)
