I Want to Spoil the Surprise

Every year my wife tries to plan a surprise party for me, but I always figure out exactly what she’s going to do and get the drop on her. This year she tried to make it a little harder for me to figure out her plans by being more secretive. I looked at her social media accounts and noticed something interesting on Snapchat. I know everyone who my wife is following on Snapchat, but I didn’t recognize one particular account. I used Snapspy to hack into the account and find out if there was anything that would tell me about her plans.

In the Snapchat account, all I found was a few pictures, none of which made any sense. The pictures had some crazy symbols on them that didn’t look like much of anything. I thought they were some kind of hyerogliphics from an ancient civilization. The more I looked at the pictures, the more I realized that they had something in common. On their own, the symbols on the pictures just looked like a mess, but if you cut each symbol into four pieces and rotated them, they turned into regular letters and numbers, which could then be turned into a message.

After turning the symbols into letters and numbers, I was left with a message to decode. I arranged them into multiple configurations to spell out whatever I could think of at the time. The messages didn’t make any sense, so I kept at it for hours. My wife came home and I had to stop working on the message because I didn’t want her to know that I found out how to get into the Snapchat account. The next day I solved the message and knew exactly where and when she would be holding my surprise birthday party.
