pick a number – make my day
“Pick a number between one to ten. Now, pick the number that you think I picked you to pick.
― Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible
I saw this meme going around the internets – post this on Facebook, and let people pick (a) number(s) that they think most describe(s) you. I was obviously procrastinating doing something.
Probably, mobility. May all lacrosse balls be damned.
So, go ahead. Pick a number. Make my fucking day.
Of course, I wasn’t just going to leave it there…
if you pick 1 – thank you (no points for originality though).
if you pick 2 – thank you, however, chances are it’s not mutual.
if you pick 3 – see above.
if you pick 4 – it sounds like we’ve met.
if you pick 5 – the feeling may be mutual. Unless you are one of my Facebook stalkers, in which case, may I suggest some good quality porn instead.
if you pick 6 – send a picture, I’ll assess whether it’s mutual.
if you pick 7 – thank you (and I was probably wearing make-up)
if you pick 8 – thank you (I’m assuming you also picked 7. Naturally.)
if you pick 9 – thank you. You have no idea. To increase your chances of 24, I suggest you pick 13, and 14, but not 17.
if you pick 10 – thank you. Please elaborate.
if you pick 11 – I was probably hungry.
if you pick 12 – I was probably very hungry.
if you pick 13 – I agree.
if you pick 14 – thank you (and if you also selected 13, I hope you know they are synonyms).
if you pick 15 – please elaborate.
if you pick 16 – i’d rather you picked 7, but thank you.
if you pick 17 – please elaborate (and I was probably very hungry).
if you pick 18 – I don’t know if I’m ready to say it back. I suggest you start with 24 first, so I can assess whether you are 8 enough, and 1 enough.
if you pick 19 – thank you (and it sounds like we’ve met).
if you pick 20 – thank you (I’m assuming we’ve met. And if we haven’t, I know a really good therapist).
if you pick 21 – thank you? (and it looks like we’ve never met).
if you pick 22 – careful what you wish for. If you also selected 11 and 12, I know a really good therapist.
if you pick 23 – I hope you did not also pick 17. Coz that would be slightly inconsistent. And you’d have to find me first – I’ve been looking for myself for years.
if you pick 24 – The feeling may be mutual. State your favourite beer, and I’ll assess whether it’s mutual. If you also selected 6, don’t forget to send a picture.
if you pick 25 – you know too much (and thank you… and I hope you also picked 12 – for poetry’s sake, and did NOT pick 17 – for YOUR sake)
if you pick 26 – you must be one of them, creative types. If your 4, 9 and 19 mostly outweigh the 1, then 24.
if you pick a sum of the numbers you picked – you sound like a pain in the ass. 13! And 24.
P.S. And the number is 42. Obviously.
