This is one of those silly FaceBook fads at the moment. One of my friends had this message posted:
I lost the great giraffe challenge. I dare you to try it. The deal is I give you a riddle; you get it right, you keep your profile pic. You get it wrong, you change your profile pic to a giraffe for the next three days! Message me only the answers! Don’t give out the answer! Here is the riddle: 3am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. It’s your parents and they are here for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open? Remember …MESSAGE ME only. If you get it right, I will post your name here, otherwise you change your picture. GIRAFFE IT UP!!!
So I answered, but incorrectly. Here is the answer. Now my FaceBook profile is adorned for the next 3 days with this adorable little giraffe.
By the way, he could be yours—
UPDATE—I’ve taken the giraffe off my Etsy listings and submitted him for our National Transit Building fundraising auction this Saturday November 9th.
