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.

    Nicely done!…although this involved much paging up and down…lol. But if 42 is the answer, them what’s the question?! This will obviously require some deep thought. For all we know, the answer may be right there in our very brain waves all along!

    Well, you seem like a pretty 13 person, so I’d love to 24 with you some time. I don’t normally drink beer, so I hope it’s okay if I have a cooler while you drink the beer of your choice. 🙂

    …Also, maybe number 6, if you play your cards right… 😉

    Also, it’s worth noting that 7 and 16 aren’t mutually exclusive, so you are easily both. 🙂
