I = you? Personally? True story?

Actual roads relevant? Or is the title a metaphor? A reference to "How many roads must a man walk..." ?

That = something that happened to you? to someone you knew? something? a random occurrence?

Is the year or time that it happened relevant? Place relevant? Any relation to your job? Or leisure activity? Were other people affected? Or just you?

BTW - glad to have you posting puzzles again!

Did 'it' happen between you and 1 other person? 2?.... positive integers to infinity.


Did this/these people you knew (were they friends?) do something to you? others? say something to you? others?

Did someone else say or do something that was experienced by you and these other(or this one)people/person?

Did this thing that happened affect other people as well, i.e. those in your household? your city? your state? your country? the world?

Hi Bigpurple! Sorry for delay. I have been away.

Did 'it' happen between you and 1 other person? 2?.... positive integers to infinity. Two others; could have been a larger smallish group.

Did this/these people you knew (were they friends? yes) do something to you? others? say something to you? yes others?

Did someone else say or do something that was experienced by you and these other(or this one)people/person? no

Did this thing that happened affect other people as well, i.e. those in your household? your city? your state? your country? the world? no to all, except that some people who were later told about it laughed

Hi, Usmcfink! How do you pronounce your name?

was the occurrence legal? yes, perfectly! moral (shall we say by christian standards of morality)? yes, unless you have very strict standards indeed

was there money involved as payment? bribery? no to all

Were all parties "negatively surprised" or just you? Hard to say. Not much, but then my feelings weren't that strong either.

Hey Brid, thanks for getting back so soon! My name is actually USMC Fink, just all smashed together =)

So, as I gather, the following is true: This was an event that happened to you and others. This event had little effect on you and no effect on others. It caused a mild emotion of negative surprise from you and it is hard to say if it caused any of the same in others. The event is also somewhat reliant on the time period in which it took place.

Did this even occur in 2008? This decade (2000+)? 1990's?

Did this occur in an urban area? Suburban? Rural? Wilderness?

Was it during the Summer? Fall? Winter? Spring?

Did this even occur in 2008? yes This decade (2000+)? so, yes 1990's? so, no

Did this occur in an urban area? Suburban? Rural? Wilderness? could have been any of these

Was it during the Summer? Fall? Winter? Spring? could have been any of these too - as I recall it, it was early September

Did you find out about an injury? death? pregnancy? malcontent? (in the family?)

Would this family member be immediate? extended? second (i.e.-second cousin)? degrees removed (i.e.-second cousin twice removed)? half (i.e.-half sister)? step? in-law?

---------RECAP---------

Something happened in a small group, including me. I never thought that would happen, and was negatively surprised, although mildly. The others possibly also had much the same feeling, but I'm not certain about this. It happened in September this year, as far as I remember, and this is relevant-ish. The age of someone is also relevant.

Now will anyone ask something more, please?

So you didn't omit information - but, did you simply answer the question based on the way it was asked - and not volunteer what she was really wanting to know?

September is when school starts. Was the question also about school/college/university?

Or do you have a birthday in September?

Were you asked about your age directly? or was it implicit in the question (Do you remember when...)
Was your age relevant to another activity you were about to participate in?
Is September relevant (ish) because of a birthday (I know it's not your birthday)? or because of a particular event in Sept 2008?

Did you forget your age? Yes! Did you have to do the math to come up with the number? If I had done so, it would have come out right...

How about your year of birth? For instance, if you were born in 1975, you said you were 75?

Did you respond with a real number? Or did you say "decade-something"? (example: 20-something, 30-something, etc.)
Perhaps you just said the last age you could remember - which it seems was several birthday's ago?

Hi Kaygee! Actually you've pretty well got it all (and I had a fever at the time of my last post - not recommended). Wish to sum it up, or should I just spiol?

******** SPOILER ************

Some time in September I sat talking with some friends. One of them, a couple of years older than me, said: "Brid, how old are you?" "43", I replied without having to think. "Oh no, you're not", said another, who is born the same year as me, which we have both known for many years. "I'm not?" said I. After a short discussion, establishing what year it was and which year we were both born, I had to agree I was only 42 (and, say, six months). I lost track of my exact age for the first time when I was about 23, but I never thought I would take for granted I was older than I was.

And especially not while being 42, this magical number, the answer to the great question about life, the universe and everything - the question nobody knows the exact wording of, but which has been suggested to be "How many roads must a man walk down?"...

Thanks to all who played!
