"Something" in the Mail

Bob has been anticipating a package in the mail. "What is in this package?" you ask? Well, let's just find out! sells you a random unspecified Something for $10. Curiosity killed the cat and got $20 from Bob (he bought two.) Here is what happened when Something finally came...

Bob was so excited! What could they be?!?!
Two Somethings in such a small package!

The first thing is.... an eggling? Wha?!?!

Apparently, this is not your ordinary egg. Inside the egg you find planted seeds. You crack open the top, water it, and you get a small plant after a while. Sweet.

Second Something: a small box with golden inlays. Holly is stoked to
put baby bracelets and other tiny jewelry-type items inside.

An egg planter and a small box. Twenty bucks.
Other Somethings from the SomethingStore seemed more promising.

So we decided to each choose one of the Somethings before we opened them (they were individually wrapped) and get to keep our own. Bob got the eggy thing. Holly got the box. Who came out on top? Did Bob get ripped off? Are you going to get your own Something? Answer and comment!!!

The egg thing is kind of cool, but I think I'd rather have $10.00. Holly definitely got the better deal. It will be Bob's job to make sure she has plenty of trinkets to keep in there for his girls! Thanks for sharing!

That sounds like fun. Too bad I no longer have $10 for ANYTHING, not to mention SOMETHING. :(

Bob won by a long shot. I don't have anything to put into a trinket box but I think I could think of many uses for a plant in an egg. Bob's something was definitely more practical than a box. When I saw the size of the boxes, I thought your something was an iPod touch or something

Bob and Holly said...

I know! The size of the box made me think that it was an iPod tie clip, I mean iPod shuffle, but alas.

Great idea opening the package one frame at a time. I was captivated till the very end. I am not sure what is does yet!! But with Holly holding the egg.... your presence is obvious!

it would seem like you each got the perfect item. I dont know if I will get my own surprise thing...maybe... I love your blog. Looks fine!!
