When Levik was a young man he spent a summer working as a stockboy for a large grocery store. It was a rather strange grocery store, however, and they had a very peculiar way of arranging the fruit.
In one group you would find any of the following fruits:
apple, banana, grape, and orange.
In a different area you would find fruits like:
mango, nectarine, peach, and pear.
One day a new crate of fruit arrived and Levik wasn't sure where to put it. Where would you put a crate labeled strawberry?
It is true, as I typed in the chatterbox, that IF pumpkins are in the same group as squash, THEN blueberries are in the same group as cantelopes.
However, it is also true that a blueberry will not be found with a cantelope.
Just to confuse matters more, it is also true that a crate labeled PUMPKIN is located in the same area as a crate labeled SQUASH.
(I honestly didn't think this would end up being so difficult to see and I hope you don't all lynch me when the pattern is discovered. ;) .)
