# A Tale of Snake and Coffee

I had the strangest dream last night:

I am in field of red stones. I start walking around until a smell of fresh coffee catches my attention. I follow it until I see a large cave, and in its entrance there's a snake. The snake speaks to me: "I will let you enter only if you can tell me what note i'm playing." He pulls out an harmonica from his bag and starts playing. I try to remember the music lessons I took a while back where I had to identify notes. I think it might be Db. Is that right? Yes! The snake says it's correct and lets me in. I walk inside and see a box with some hard covering and a strange force is pulling me towards it. I open it and and see there is just one piece of paper and it reads... "COFFEE"?!

I wake up in confusion - what had I just dreamed about?

I glance at my watch and see it's 7:30 am. I go to the kitchen to drink some coffee before I head to work. But the confusion is still there. I can't remember what is my job.

What's my job?

I bet you're a

software developer

because

your little story refers to Ruby (red stones), Python (snake), Java (coffee), C# (Db), shell (hard cover on box) and Javascript (COFFEE written on a piece of paper).

However,

the strange force pulling you to the box is a bit of a mystery; perhaps it's just there for atmosphere, or perhaps generalcrispy's suggestion in comments of "git pull" is correct...

• Hard covered box = (rot13) pbzchgre? Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 12:05
• Maybe. Or rot13(pbagnvare) or something, but it feels like there may be something more specific going on here. Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 12:08
• That's correct! One more to go Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 12:18
• First guess on the box is right (1 of 2 parts) Commented Jun 13, 2019 at 12:41
• There is an explanation behind the "force" that goes together with the hard covering you already got (not yet discovered). Commented Jun 14, 2019 at 6:41
