I wish I knew because it has me baffled. I have done it ten times with different numbers and it has been correct every time. My brain is hurting trying to figure it out.

Cute Pat! Notice that the item she comes up with is in many, many boxes. If you sit there with the page with all the numbers, you can see that any 2 digit number you can think of minus the numerals always equals something that has the same gift name in it. Just try a few with the page open that has all the numbers. And you'll see there are very few possible combinations.

For example. 10-1, 11-2, 12-3, 13-4, etc all equal the same 9.

No matter what number you use, it's always a multiple of 9 (all of the multiples of 9 have the same item in them).

Penn, you didn't pass 3rd grade math did ya?

Didn't anyone pass 3rd grade English? "Gift" isn't a verb. The proper term is "regiving".

PS: "Birth" isn't one either.

Deplaning is what the little guy in the white suit does, right?

lol. De-plane. De-plane!
No no.
It's deplaning. The stewardesses tell you to "deplane" as you exit an aircraft. The first time I heard it I could hardly believe my ears. it's a real word, I believe.

We're into "able" lately. Mailable. Microwaveable. I even saw "ovenable." Meaning one can oven it.

Deplaning is a word airports use all the time. Our local airport talks about reaching their deplaning quota for the month. Probably 10-12 years ago I wrote a story for the paper quoting someone at the airport using the word deplaning. My boss made me change it to an indirect quote and change the deplaning. He said it wasn't a word. Ha! Little did he know!
