A Lazy Thursday Tod-centric Brain Teaser…
… of sorts, anyway.
A friend just reminded me of this list I made in high school and the common denominators he saw immediately that I didn’t. Reminded of it now, I found myself wondering, “I would never have seen the pattern without him pointing it out, but I wonder if the people at the League would see it immediately?” So I decided to indulge my curiosity.
First, a quick background:
In my junior lit class, our teacher had us list on paper as many heroes as we could think of in thirty seconds. They had to be our heroes, but they could have been heroes from any point in out life. I cannot for the life of me remember the intended purpose of the exercise.
Here is my list:
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Daedalus, from Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
So there are the ones I rattled off. As I said, I never would have seen the pattern if my friend had not pointed it out to me. Since then, I’ve often wondered to what degree it says something if anything about me, and to what degree it says something if anything about our world.
So, does anyone see the pattern?
