Was it, in reality, something that described the type of card?
The shape of the card?
The material of which the card was made?
The library which it belonged to?
Who had produced it?
A quality of the card (that it was hard to break, that it was unique to whoever owned it, or something like that)?
The nationality or other geographical location?
Or did it have the same meaning about the card that it would have had about you?

Was it, in reality, not a word at all, but a combination of letters that meant something else - for instance, the card's ID number was Z-432-SANE-87-CEK-7 (though I know the word wasn't "sane")?

Was it, in reality, something that described the type of card I suppose so.

*************Spoiler***************
Because my card was handed back to me upside down, I got a good look at the back of it, where it said:
Normal
ADULT
describing what kind of card it was. I chose to take it as describing me, and showed it to my husband, whereupon the conversation recorded in the puzzle statement took place.


I'm pleased that at least Shez and Jondahr think I'm normal!

Haha! At last! Great puzzle!

I want a card like that, I often feel I could use an official document stating that I'm normal.
