[Doriana] Do kids still do that?

Postby Doriana » Thu Mar 23, 2017 10:34 am

Someone passes Olivia (H/T/F) a note in class. Subsequently, she stops wearing her favourite hoodie to school, although the note neither mentioned her hoodie nor any other piece of clothing.

Relevant who passed her the note? Is he or she M?F? Does she like him or her?
Relevant how they passed her the note? Have they put it into the hood?

Would this puzzle work with a t-shirt instead of a hoodie? Relevant what she starts wearing instead? Does she want to look more attractive? Is she afraid of getting pranks pulled on her with the hood?

Is there any relevant logo on the hoodie? Text? Artwork? Is the color of the hoodie relevant?
Is the note-passer friends with Olivia? Acquaintances? Complete strangers? Enemies (so far as school-aged teens can have enemies)?
Note-passer = H? T? Can we call her Jasmine?
Is the note related to the classwork?

Does Olivia think that Willy is going to ask her on a date? Yesish, see below Does the note indicate that? See below

-Has Willy said he likes Olivia? Yes That he likes something about her? Not specifically

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

Olivia and Willy are classmates who are fans of rival soccer teams. A classmate passes Olivia a note that says "Willy likes you". Unsure how to proceed from there and too shy to ask Willy on a date, Olivia stops wearing her soccer hoodie to school because she thinks this might increase the chances of Willy actually asking her out.

(True story from middle school - Olivia and Willy did not end up with each other and Olivia starts wearing her hoodie to school again.)


Nice work, everyone!
