[IrishElk] Quick Change Artists

Postby irishelk » Tue Oct 08, 2019 3:52 pm

A man is going to dinner when a woman he doesn't know runs up and asks him to put on a shirt that she hands him. He immediately understands, agrees, and puts it on. They don't talk or interact further, except that two hours later he gives her back the shirt. What's going on?

Possible quickie.

Does he wear a shirt before? Does he put the other one on top of what he already wears? Is he eating alone? With friends? A partner? Date? Business associate? Relevant? Does he eat at a restaurant? Cafe? Relevant? Does the woman work at the eating place? Has he had some issue with his own clothing? Such as a spill?

Was the man alone? Was he going to a particular/relevant place to have dinner? Had he not wore the t shirt, would he have had to go somewhere else? Do women wear similar t shirts too? Coloro of his clothes relevant? Did he put the t shirt on the other clothes or did he throw them off before?

Did the woman give t-shirt also to other people? The same t-shirt? Did she wear one? Relevant writings/pictures on the t-shirt? Do other people wear one? If so people going to dinner? In the same place of the man? Did the woman give him the t-shirt as a part of his job?

Two hours time = after the dinner? Did he know that after 2 exact hours he would have to give back the t-shirt?

Ups...shirt or t-shirt? Relevant?
Did the shirt belong to someone relevant? To a man related to the woman? Private detectives relevant? Paparazzi? Others?

Does he wear a shirt before? Yes. Does he put the other one on top of what he already wears? Yes, or changes, irr.
Is he eating alone? With friends? A partner? Date? Business associate? Relevant? Irr.
Does he eat at a restaurant? This. Cafe? Relevant? Yes.
Does the woman work at the eating place? Yope. Has he had some issue with his own clothing? No. Such as a spill?


Earnest

Was the man alone? Irr. Was he going to a particular/relevant place to have dinner? Yope--something about the place is relevant. Had he not wore the t shirt, would he have had to go somewhere else? Noish. Do women wear similar t shirts too? Assume yes, irr. Coloro of his clothes relevant? No. Did he put the t shirt on the other clothes or did he throw them off before? Irr, either works.

Did the woman give t-shirt also to other people? No. The same t-shirt? Did she wear one? Yes! Relevant writings/pictures on the t-shirt? Somewhat, but you don't need to find this to solve. Do other people wear one? Other people are probably wearing the shirt she gives him, yes. If so people going to dinner? No. In the same place of the man? Yes. Did the woman give him the t-shirt as a part of his job? No.

Two hours time = after the dinner? Irr. Did he know that after 2 exact hours he would have to give back the t-shirt? Probably, but possibly not the exact timing.

Ups...shirt or t-shirt? T-shirt. Relevant? Somewhat.
Did the shirt belong to someone relevant? No. To a man related to the woman? Private detectives relevant? Paparazzi? No. Others? Other people are tangentially relevant.

Does the man find himself in the restaurant when the lady gave him the t-shirt? In the row for the restaurant? In a row? Or maybe he was in a Mall? In a building with shops and restaurants? Outside? In a street? Is advertising relevant? Can we assume that the man was alone? That the man went straight to the restaurant once he wore the t-shirt? Can we assume that the restaurant is a normal restaurant? Is it relevant which kind of food is served there? Is taking pictures relevant?

So the woman wore the t shirt and worked for the relevant restaurant? For the place where the restaurant was (e.g. in a building block)? Or maybe she works in police? An accident happened? Is the t-shirt useful? (e.g. in order not to stain other clothes?) Are the t-shirts relevantly fluorescent? Is the t-shirt useful to highlight/distinguish who wear it? To signal the presence of pedestrians/people? Does the woman give t-shirts every day of the Year? Just that day? Relevant? Was it a particular day? Are t-shirts given back once someone go outside of a relevant area? When an event is over? Others?

Is the T-shirt some kind of uniform for the workers at that restaurant? Same Q for somewhere else? Is it the same T-shirt as the one the woman is wearing? Does the T-shirt help him to blend in? Stand out? Is the restaurant or café a chain? Relevant?

Is advertising relevant? No. Can we assume that the man was alone? Yes, irr. That the man went straight to the restaurant once he wore the t-shirt? Yes. Can we assume that the restaurant is a normal restaurant? Yes--there is something relevant, but it's not too unusual. Is it relevant which kind of food is served there? No. Is taking pictures relevant? No.

So the woman wore the t shirt and worked for the relevant restaurant? No. For the place where the restaurant was (e.g. in a building block)? Or maybe she works in police? An accident happened? No to these.
Is the t-shirt useful? Depends on what you mean. She is having him wear it for a reason. (e.g. in order not to stain other clothes?) Are the t-shirts relevantly fluorescent? No. Is the t-shirt useful to highlight/distinguish who wear it? Possibly, but not relevant to this situation. To signal the presence of pedestrians/people? No.
Does the woman give t-shirts every day of the Year? No. Just that day? Noish. Relevant? Yes. Was it a particular day? Noish. Are t-shirts given back once someone go outside of a relevant area? FA, noish. When an event is over? Yesish, but I think FA. Others?

Does the T-shirt help him to blend in? In a vague way. Stand out? No. Is the restaurant or café a chain? Relevant? Irr.

Was he wearing a shirt of a competing restaurant before he puts the t-shirt on? Another business? Maybe he worked next door and went there straight from work in his work uniform and they didn't want to confuse people as to what business this was?

Was he going to the restaurant for a stag do, birthday party, work's Xmas party or something like that? Was she giving the t-shirts to other people there? Are their ages or the location relevant? Is it for identification purposes? Is there writing or a picture on the t-shirts?

To be sure: did he wear the t-shirt for all the 2 hours? Inside the restaurant? Just for a few time after having received it? Did the man go to the restaurant to enjoy a meal? Had the girl not handed him the t-shirt would he have gone in the same restaurant to have dinner?

except that two hours later he gives her back the shirt --> was he supposed to give the t-shirt back? Did he know? If so, did he give it back voluntarily? Someone asked him to do so?
Are t-shirts given back at all? If so, in the same conditions of when they have been given two people?

Relevant aspect of the restaurant: was it self -service? A la carte? Take-away? A theme restaurant? Did the restaurant have a karaoke? A stage? Tables on the outside? A pizzeria? Asian? Ethnic? Others?

Are street artists relevant? Magic performance? (e.g. a magician that disappeared from a place and reappeared to another place? A magician wearing such t-shirt? Others?)

Do other staff members have the same t-shirt a part from the woman? Were shows relevantly performed inside the restaurant? If so, was the man going to attend the show? As part of the public? Was the public actively partecipating to the show? Or maybe just a part of the public? The part with the t-shirt on? Was the restaurant informal? Formal? Relevant? Did the restaurant host a famous band/person? Special effects relevant?
To be sure: Did he expect to be handed a t-shirt from the woman? did the man put on the t-shirt as soon as the woman handed to him? Or did he wait to be inside the restaurant? A specific part of the night? Is a joke relevant?

Were the t-shirt distributed all identical? Can we assume so? Or a distinction is made according to some criterion (e.g. gender? smokers vs not smokers? Single vs not single? Belonging to a team or to another? Others?)? Would the puzzle have worked with different t shirts distributed to people? With two different types of t shirt? With more than two types? Relevant?
Is music relevant at all? Dance? Singers? Live performances? Tv shows? Is speed dating relevant?
Do the ones (the girl, assuming she was the only one distributing the t-shirt) distributing the t-shirt want to "conform" people?
Was the girl an artist working on the restaurant for the night? a singer? a performer? Is Hell's Kitchen relevant? DO people eating at the restaurant relevantly evaluate the restaurant? Give a mark to it? If so according to certain parameters?

Do other staff members have the same t-shirt a part from the woman? Yes, but beware FA. Were shows relevantly performed inside the restaurant? For SVV of "show." If so, was the man going to attend the show? No. As part of the public?
Was the public actively partecipating to the show? Yes. Or maybe just a part of the public? Just the people who came to take part. The part with the t-shirt on? No. Was the restaurant informal? Probably this, but irr. Formal? Relevant? Did the restaurant host a famous band/person? No. Special effects relevant? No.
To be sure: Did he expect to be handed a t-shirt from the woman? No. did the man put on the t-shirt as soon as the woman handed to him? Yes. Or did he wait to be inside the restaurant? A specific part of the night? Is a joke relevant? No to rest.

Relevant? FA for all.

Is music relevant at all? Dance? Singers? Live performances? Tv shows? Is speed dating relevant? No to all (except for SVV of "performance").

Cool peofile image Irish!

Were the t shirts distributed to people? Given to people? Did the girl who handed him the t shirt have many t shirts with her? Relevant? Do other staff members handed t shirts as well? If so, one to each person? More than one? Inside the restaurant? Outside? Are bets relevant? Backstage access?
Was there a live performance/show that night in the restaurant? During dinner? Theater relevant? Was the man aware of it? Was the man grateful to the woman that handed him the t shirt? Neutral?
WAG --> maybe the man was the main performer, there was a row and in order to mislead people she handed him a t shirt so that he could have entered from the backdoor undisturbed?

Could the man had a t shirt also if the girl had not handed to him? If so from someone else? By taking it himself?

Cool peofile image Irish! Thank you! Truer to my username and much more Halloween-y.

Were the t shirts distributed to people? No. Given to people? No. Did the girl who handed him the t shirt have many t shirts with her? Assume no. Relevant? Not really. Do other staff members handed t shirts as well? No. If so, one to each person? More than one? Inside the restaurant? Outside?
Are bets relevant? No. Backstage access? No.
Was there a live performance/show that night in the restaurant? For SVV of "show." During dinner? During the man's dinner, yes. Theater relevant? No. Was the man aware of it? Yes. Was the man grateful to the woman that handed him the t shirt? Neutral? This.
WAG --> maybe the man was the main performer, there was a row and in order to mislead people she handed him a t shirt so that he could have entered from the backdoor undisturbed? No, but good WAG.

Could the man had a t shirt also if the girl had not handed to him? Not the one she handed him, no. If so from someone else? By taking it himself? I mean, I suppose he could steal it, but irr.

Show = something fake (e.g. they faked that it was the birthday party of the man?)? Someone acting? Celebrating something? Celebrating someone? A private event? Is an invitation needed to take part to the event? Relevant? Others?

Did the woman ask also to other people to wear the t shirt? Is the position of the man's table relevant? Would someone have seen the t shirt relevantly? The woman? Other staff's members (who were also part of the performance)? Did the t-shirt left over? Is the exact number of people wearing the t shirt relevant? Is man's timing in eating dinner relevant?

Was she asked to do it? Was she asked not to do it? Was it part of her job? Was the woman grateful to the man for having accepted the t shirt? Are signatures relevant? Can we assume that the t shirt could have been bought in normal shops? Is style relevant? fashion? Can we assume that the man sit on his table for all the dinner? If so, was he part of the "performance" as soon as he entered the restaurant? Or maybe the performance started after? At a relevant part of the dinner? The main course? Dessert? Are buffets relevant? Cakes? Did the man know someone else inside the restaurant? Relevant? Can we assume that the woman was one of the organizers of the performance? Did the man understands immediately the role of the woman? Her job? That she worked for the restaurant? If so, because she said? For her appearance (e.g. the fact that she wore a t shirt? The fact that she was handing him the same t shirt that she was wearing?)? Did the woman know that the man was going to the restaurant? Did the "performance" last more than an hour? Less than 30 minutes? Less than 10 minutes? 2 hours? Were other people wearing the t shirt in the area where the man was during the dinner? Did they appear after?

Was the woman the person who was going to be performing? Irr actually. She is part of the performing group but might not go up on stage herself. Was the show stand-up comedy? Improv? Magic act? Poetry slam? Performance art? No to all.

Is the position of the man's table relevant? Somewhat. Would someone have seen the t shirt relevantly? Yope, explore. The woman? No. Other staff's members (who were also part of the performance)? No. Did the t-shirt left over? Rephrase?
Is the exact number of people wearing the t shirt relevant? No. Is man's timing in eating dinner relevant? No. Physical characteristics of the man relevant? Noish, but maybe explore. Was the t shirt wore by someone else before? Relevant? Irr.
Relevant why the woman wore the t shirt? Yes. Had she been handed a t shirt too? No. Was she asked to do it? At some point, probably. Was she asked not to do it? No. Was it part of her job? Yes. Was the woman grateful to the man for having accepted the t shirt? Probably, yes. Are signatures relevant? No. Can we assume that the t shirt could have been bought in normal shops?

Assume that he understood right away what was happening, either by intuition or because she told him.
Did the woman know that the man was going to the restaurant? Yes. Did the "performance" last more than an hour? Less than 30 minutes? Less than 10 minutes? 2 hours? This.

Would public have seen the t shirt? Have seen him? Did he act like a deterrent for someone to come into play/take part of the show/ ruin the show? (E.g. he had lot of muscles and prevented people to make bad comments against the woman?)

Is cabaret relevant? Strip?

Was the shirt the same as promoters or crew there? Thereby signifying that the man was allowed to be in the restaurant? When without the shirt he'd have been kicked out?

Was he going to the restaurant as a customer? As an homeless to ask for money? Are costumes relevant? Tattoos? Dress code? Brands? Mode?

Relevant charachteristic of the man: physical charachteristic (beard? Similarity to someone? An handicap? Height? Glasses? Hat? Bermuda? Hair? Others?)? Something he did not have (e.g. he did not reserve a table? He did not have a ticket? He did not have something that was relevant to enter the restaurant that night?)? Did the crew need one more member for the night? Did the cree need someone to occupy a table (e.g. they left something under the table/the table prevented people to see something relevant? The table was too close tp the stage? Too far?)? A substitute? A substitute for the woman? Did the t shirt belong to another member of the crew?

Did the woman hand him the t shirt as soon as he arrived to the restauran? Once something relevant happened? E.g. once he asked for a table? Once he was said that all tables were reserved?

You said earlier that other people who were there were probably wearing the same shirt, but that they weren't there to eat. Was the restaurant supposed to be serving food at that time? Were they there to perform? To do some other job? Were they employees of the place?

Does the woman mistake him for someone else? Does she misunderstand the reason he's there? Is the restaurant supposed to be closed to the public at this time?

Was the event a trivia night? Something being shown on TV? If yes to the latter, a sporting event?

You said earlier that other people who were there were probably wearing the same shirt, but that they weren't there to eat. Was the restaurant supposed to be serving food at that time? Were they there to perform? This, using "perform" loosely. To do some other job? Yes. Were they employees of the place? No.

Does the woman mistake him for someone else? No. Does she misunderstand the reason he's there? No. Is the restaurant supposed to be closed to the public at this time? No.

Was the event a trivia night? Yes! Trebor is on fire! Something being shown on TV? If yes to the latter, a sporting event? No to rest.

Did the shirt identify the man as a member of her team? Did teams need to be a certain size? Or else they'd be disqualified? And the woman's team had been one short?
