Your friend says, “Hold on just a second, I forgot my…”
1. socks [GREEN]
2. clean socks [BLUE]
3. government bond [ORANGE]
4. grandmother’s hairpin that she let her friend Phyllis borrow in 1947 and then forgot to ask for it’s return.
5. glasses [RED]
CODE GREEN – Relax. Everything will be better in a couple of minutes.
CODE BLUE – Okay, a tiny bit more complicated. But we’ll get there.
CODE ORANGE – This might take a bit. You should probably adjust your expectations as to when you will be arriving at your next destination. But hope is not lost. I mean, it’s a government bond. It’ll be somewhere. The internet?
CODE YELLOW – Prepare to be very late. What kind of investigation does this involve? First, your friend has to call his grandmother, supposing she is still awake. Then he must get the contact info of her friend Phyllis, whom we are now supposing is not only awake, but alive. Then, supposing that Phyllis lives within a reasonable distance, you both have to drive over there to pick up the hairpin, of course, supposing the hairpin hasn’t been lost. It’s reasonable to assume you’re not going to make it.
CODE RED – Buy new glasses. Get a new friend.

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Florida
- Home to Clearwater, which has the highest rate of lightning strikes per capita in the U.S.
- The first ATM was installed in Miami, FL, specifically and especially for rollerbladers.
- Home to Venice, known as the Shark Tooth Capital of the World. Visitors and residents alike spend a lot of time hunting and collecting.
- The only state with two rivers with the same name. There is a Withlacoochee in north central Florida (Madison County) and a Withlacoochee in central Florida. They have nothing in common.
- The Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival is celebrated the third weekend in October. In which city? Niceville, of course.
