Exercise #460

Exercise #460: Interactive
Posted 3/23/12

You've seen the Prep posts from everyone. Time to choose!

Choose* a number between 1 and 37. This will be the job/career for your SUB. Choose a number between 1 and 33 for your household appliance and a third number between 1 and 36 for your favorite food. They can't be the same number!

Got three different numbers? Go to the Prep choices page to see what you've drawn: prep.html 

If any are what you submitted, choose a different number for that selection. You can't pick your own!

Done? You should have a job/career, a household appliance and a favorite food which each came from a different Desk Drawer member . . .  who isn't you.

Now you can either:
     - Just throw your three choices together and show us the story, or
     - Use this set up: The household appliance is broken, so you call someone to come fix it. The help that arrives is the job/career, and they’ve brought along the favorite food to assist in the repair. (Don’t laugh! Sometimes the most absurd ones come out the best.)

Remember to tell us what your three choices were.

Critiquers, along with a technical review, you might comment on how well the resulting work fits the choices, and why you feel this way.

Please note the larger word limit.

* If you don’t have an easy way to choose your numbers: Try putting slips of paper with the numbers 1 through 40 in a hat, or go to this site:
