One early morning

I was half sleeping

This riddle wording

I found in head sitting :

(here the riddle begins)

Nobody have it,

That I can say,

But if you give it,

You get the same

(Well, this is translation, so all typos on my head, those are not part of riddle. The orginal (in Czech) came to me in dream in this form):

Jednou po ránku

napůl v polospánku

jsem vymyslel hádanku:


Nikdo to nemá,

to není lež,

však když to dáš,

tak to dostaneš.

Solved already (SteveV nailed it ) :)

That surely is
Kiss on the lips :)

Or in Czech

Tohle je dojista
polibek na ústa :)

New guess Is it

a kiss on the lips


no one has "a kiss", but if you give it, you get one back too

Could this be a



Nobody can have a punch, but if you give a punch you’d better expect one in return.

  • $\begingroup$ The direction of your thinking is good, but the part "get the same" is automatic result, not just expectable here in this riddle :) $\endgroup$
