Brainteaser: See Me

(Image credit: Flickr user Earl)

I do not breath, yet I run.
I do not eat, yet I sleep.
I do not drink, yet I swim.
I do not think, yet I grow.
I cannot see you, but you see me every day.
What am I?

Think you know what it is?

The brainteaser above is reprinted  from Uncle John's Curiously Compelling Bathroom Reader, a fantastic book by the Bathroom Readers' Institute. The 19th book in this fan-favorite series contain such gems like The Greatest Plane that Never Was, Forgotten Robot Milestones, Ancient Beauty Secrets, and more.

Since 1988, the Bathroom Reader Institute had published a series of popular books containing irresistible bits of trivia and obscure yet fascinating facts. If you like Neatorama, you'll love the Bathroom Reader Institute's books - go ahead and check 'em out!

I prefer my answer: your eye(s), which both run and "swim" with tears, sleep in rest, and are said to "grow" wide in wonder. Though you may not see your eyes every day, you could say the same of your legs to some extent.
