My Friend the Test Pilot
I met my friend the test pilot, who had just received a lot of publicity for a record round-the-world flight by hot-air balloon. With my friend was a little girl of about two. "Whats her name?" I asked my friend, whom I hadnt seen in 5 or 6 years and had gotten married four years ago. "Same as her mother," was the reply. "Hello, Susan", I said to the little girl. How did I know if I had never seen the wedding announcement?

Your friend the test pilot is Susan, the girl's mother.ReplyDelete
Yeah that's the right answer...ReplyDelete
another option: the hot-air balloon was named Susan. High probability don't you think?
