A Christmas Safety Quiz


Since I care about you and don’t want to see you hurt, I feel the need to quiz you on the following:

Slate magazine had an article today about how to make giving an e-book as a gift more fun.  They showed nine different ways to accomplish this task. Some were good (like attaching a note to a blanket or a coffee mug. That way the receiver is getting something tangible along with their e-book, and it follows a theme). Some were cheap, but still creative (like the boot). Some were stupid (If you are naive enough to think that writing “I got you an e-book” on your hand is acceptable, then you really DO need this advice).

But one of these suggestions is not only stupid, it’s downright dangerous. Take a look at this screen cap and see if you can tell me which of these ideas will get you shanked:

Forty-sdjhfkjsdhfkjsdh year old mom of 2 - a 18 year old boy and a 11 year old girl. I love them very much, but they drive me crazy. I'm married and work full-time. I'm not sure which of these is the most exhausting, but probably the husband. I'm opinionated. I'm outspoken. I'm loud. I'm an over-sharer. I think Tom Cruise is a jackass. I like to say jackass. I like to swear, period. Fuckers. I love to read. I struggle with my weight. I love my job. I dress my pets up and ridicule them regularly. I am not afraid to cut my hair and I don't understand people who are. I hate getting old. I love to laugh. Make me laugh, OK?

  1. Ha ha! I was squinting carefully at each option, thinking, “Well, the save a tree one is pretty preachy, I could see that being a little risky….but more annoying than dangerous….” and then “Well, wrapping another book is kind of weird, and then what do you do with the book?…but not really DANGEROUS….”—-and then I got to the ring box. OMG OMG OMG. I feel like killing someone RIGHT NOW.

  2. Definitely the Tiffany box. Nothing should go in a Tiffany’s box except something from Tiffanys, and if she’s been hinting about an engagement, this will get you killed faster than anything.

  3. I think the tiny little box. That should only have diamonds in it. By the way, what is an Ebook? LOL. I get my books at Goodwill so I can turn down the pages and pile them up next to my bed with great intentions of reading them. I am a dinosaur, I know.
