Twenty questions...or more?
« on: November 10, 2008, 05:43:42 PM »
If you know the answer to this game, please be honest, and do not ruin it for the others.

This is a game of twenty questions. And yes, it may take more than twenty.

The object is to ask yes or no questions. Based on the answers previously given, you goal is to come up with the story or details that explains why the events unfolded as they did. After this one, if successful and fun, I have others to follow. I will try to answer the questions every day in a timely fashion.

And again, if you know the answer, please just play along and let the others figure it out. It's going to be a long winter.  :-D

_____________________________
One stormy night, a taxi drives down a rather dark road. It pulls into a driveway and follows the road back around the house. The taxi stops, and out of the taxi steps a man with a box. He knocks on the door and enters. Inside the garage, are four men sitting at a table. Without saying anything, the man places the box on the table. Each man sitting at the table looks at the man that has entered the room, and looks in the box and nods. After the last man has nodded in agreement, one of the men states "your debt has been paid and no harm will come to you". Upon hearing this, the man without saying anything, turns and leaves.

What just happened, and why?

I know the answer.
What just happened - A man paid a debt he owed to 4 guys.
Why - because if he did not harm was going to come to him. lol Just joking. This seems like a fun game.

Was the box empty?

Did the man take the box with him when he left?

Hmmmm,....I think the "Stormy Nite" has something to do with this......
 I am thinking four people, maybe there to play a game...maybe poker...or Spades....I'm thinking that the box was a deck of cards maybe....
 Or, maybe, years ago, somebody was watching me enter the "Body Shop" with a box full of beer, and the guys decided that was enough to cover the labor for fixing my truck! :)

your friend,
john

Johnny,
Although your comments are really not questions, they are all off target.  ;)
