As I was going to St. Ives I met a man with seven wives, each wife had seven sacks, each sack had seven cats, each cat had seven kittens. How many things were going to St. Ives?

One! Although I do love that one... it's a classic. I think it's in almost every children's story book.

In children's stories? Wow see, I think maybe riddles and the like are probably easier for native english speakers. It seems everyone I have learned in the last couple years everyone English speaker has heard since they were little. :) Well I am learning them now. Better late than never I guess.

7 things only, cause the man, the 7 wives, the 7 cats and the 7 kittens aren't "things". The sacks are.

but the riddle doesnt say the man "I" met would go to St. Ives, so we dont know where the seven sacks go. I think just "I" go to St. Ives. and in general speaking, man is thing.
