This puzzle is part of the Monthly Topic Challenge #6: Is it really that [time] again?.
I was going on a blind date with a fellow puzzler and they sent me this:
I didn't end up going on the date, got mixed messages. But if I did, how might I have recognized them?
A: Ok, so the pier it is then! When should we meet?
B: I can do exclusively 1:17 or 7:56 or 6:21
B: Hopefully that doesn't raise any red flags
A: That works, and how will I recognize you?
B: I'll wear a distinctive three letter accessory.
If you're my age and as good a puzzler as you say,
you should be able to figure it out :)
A: I knew I shouldn't have expected a straight answer 🙄
