The best story I have is that I normally DM my spouse. It takes me a good 80 hours of preparation for a session. I'm pretty thorough that way.
Anyway, my spouse enjoys "historical" more than fantasy so I tossed in a historical out of Version 2 - using the Viking handbook for specific stats. The rest is all storyline, made by me.
So, he was a young Viking who had just come of age with the other young men of the village and they had an initiation into manhood ceremony before their first voyage away from the home country.
The very first part of the initiation was the "shaving". The young men were separated and went into rooms where they had a choice - legs or head - to be shaved. It was all preset - all the men would shave their heads. But, a DM doesn't make the player's decisions and the player said he wanted his LEGS shaved? I asked why, trying not to laugh, and he said "Because it won't show."
Well, when the men gathered back together for the next part of the ceremony, the player noticed ALL of the young men had their heads shaved. It dawned on him!
Moral of the Story is - Sometimes, things that are hidden or "don't show" are strikingly clear and obvious.
