Choose Your Own Adventure

I was unbelievably busy last week, and surprisingly, the busyness I'm referencing did not even involve my official responsibilities in compliance. I was planning on writing a blog to share some of the fun/insane/ridiculous things that happened, and I thought of a way to mix it up a little and make a challenge out of it for our readers.

Have you ever seen those image-based logic puzzles where you're given a series of images and challenged to put them in order to create a story? Here's an example:

Logic Puzzle Example

What story are those pictures trying to tell? A boy [6] grabs a fishing pole [4], and finds a fishing hole [5]. He baits his hook [3] and waits for the catfish to quit posing [2] and bite the hook! He takes his catch home, and his mom fries it up [1]. MMMM Good [7]!

You could probably interpret it a different way and "choose your own adventure" where the anthropomorphized fish deep fried the boy ... Depends on how far outside the box you think. The answer the question was meant to have is the one above. Now that you see how it works, I have a logic puzzle for you to try and figure out about what happened during my week last week.

All ten of the pictures below were taken in the span of 56 hours ... If you can come up with the correct story, I'll send you a prize (detailed below). If you can come up with a creative story that isn't correct, I can probably find something to send you as well. Without further ado, here are the pieces of the story [Click for Larger Version]:

Logic Puzzle Example

If you've been to the SoftLayer Blog this week, you know that we have a "Kids Meal" kind of special going right now where for the next few months if you buy a server and email us, you can get an official SoftLayer Bobblehead! To piggyback on that giveaway, the first person who posts a comment with the correct order of the photos to answer the puzzle (or the funniest answer if no correct answers are posted), will get my personal FULL SET of official SLobbleheads. Yes, the full set! You won't have to wait to place your server orders in the next month to complete your bobblehead collection (though I hope you still keep ordering servers).

So what are you waiting for? Tell me the story!
