One Of These Things Is Not Like The Others

Do you remember that Sesame Street game "One of these things is not like the others?"

I thought we could have our own version and since I'm in charge around here, that's just what we have, yay!

So here goes. . .

I have dated all but one of the following:

- a pilot
- an athlete
- a musician
- a teacher
- a lawyer
- a stoner
- a counsellor
- a pilot in training /military officer (giveaway answer methinks!)
- a contractor
- an unemployed student
- a dj
- a divorced father
- a gardener
- a parking lot attendant
- a sailor

(Don't worry, I said "dated", not "slept with". My honour is still intact.)*

Guess away in comments.

Answers revealed in a few days!

Alright, I don't have a guess yet. I have however taken to digging through your archives to try to find some answers though. Why am I commenting then? Because I just read this. I think you were sending a message that the you of today might need.

Ooh a quiz! The parking lot attendant seems to stand out in that list for some reason. Do we only get one guess?

Why does the YMCA tune start up in my head as I read down the list?

OK so here it is: You have been with a pilot, pilot trainer and sailor (probably the same guy)

stoner, gardener, unemployed student same guy.

teacher and counselor, same guy. I'm going for athlete. I need a full definition of "athlete" though. Some dude that plays soccer on the weekends is not an athlete.

Tod, why does it make me nervous that you're singing YMCA as you read my list! lol

You can guess a few times, but not, you know, so many times that you're guaranteed to be right! ; )

Tyler, I'm not going to make it too easy for you, but I do not mean just some guy who plays soccer on the weekends ; )

On the list,

1. a pilot
2. an athlete
3. a musician
4. a teacher
5. a lawyer
6. a stoner
7. a counsellor
8. a pilot in training /military officer
9. a contractor
10. an unemployed student
11. a dj
12. a divorced father
13. a gardener
14. a parking lot attendant
15. a sailor

My (flimsy) deductions:

You started off the list thinking about
Smith but there's a high chance you
dated another pilot because that may be
one of the reason why you found him
interesting in the first place. I assume
people tend to date the same profession
again and again.

Most people would think that leaving it
in the middle will hide it somehow.
So #1-4 and #12-15 aren't the right
answers, leaving #5-#11.

Based on the number of people in certain
groups: stoners, contractors, students,
counsellors and divorced fathers are dime
a dozen so they're unlikely to be the
right answer.

This leaves only lawyer and DJ.

Lawyer and stoner are right next to each
other and they're sort of opposite.

Interesting theory. I have no comment, yet, of course! ; )

Can we guess none of the above, in that you have dated at least one of each of those?

(I find that sentence inarticulate, but I am too tired to care...must sleep so I don't fall down while hiking tomorrow...)

Sure, you can guess that, but I'll tell you (sleepy you!) that I have not dated one of the above. Or, um, I have dated all but... no, I have not dated. Just, um.No.

; )

I'm tired too!

I didn't make it too far through your archives, but I'm going to just go ahead and guess lawyer.
