FC: MY LIFE AS A GIRAFFE a three days wonderful experience Elizabeta María
1: One day I saw a challenge in FB that caught my attention. It was a riddle, if you got it right your name would be posted under the riddle, if not, then you would have to change your profile picture with a giraffe picture. I accepted the challenge and my answer was found wrong. So, there I went! Changed my profile picture and put a giraffe one instead. Also made a comment of how ashamed I was of this fact and because of that my giraffe is facing back to the public. So my life as a giraffe started. What I didn't know was how much fun giraffes get!!! My friends make comments about my profile picture, they laughed and make fun at my expenses, I challenged them, they gave exactly the same answer I did. In less than an hour six of my friends joined me as a giraffe, we laughed, make jokes, pitied ourselves because we were not as smart as we thought we were and laughed some more. They asked me for giraffe's pictures and not surprisingly I got more than one for each of them, also there was a link! Just with funny pictures of giraffes. We became an elitist group! We were THE giraffes, everybody had something to say about our profile pictures, either how cute, how much we have change o just making fun of us but we got the attention and, more than one wanted to join us. I believe that some are very capable to answer wrong just to be a giraffe!!! As is my custom I started posting whatever popped in my mind, and even wrote a thank you note to the person that had “giraffed” me, which my daughter found hilarious that I twisted giving a wrong answer as an “opportunity for a great experience”. I found that giraffes are gentle, majestic, beautiful, have high standards in Life, higher point of view and their comments are always of a high level. Even my little brother came home and made a comment of all those giraffes around my FB page, (we share same group of friends) and asked me what was this all about, I explained, he confess that he was about to post a giraffe on his profile just to be part of the group even though he thought it was that giraffes were in danger or who knows what he thought!!! But he was looking for a giraffe picture to be posted on his profile! And then I came up with the idea of making a book! So this is it! All of you are in here because without you this book would not exist! Elizabeta

24: Here is the riddle: 3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors, It's your parents and they are there 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'll post your name here. If you get it wrong, change your profile pic!
25: What I learned: We can make our life as fun or as miserable as we want. 3 days passed and all what we talked about was this giraffe business that united us in a fun game, took out the best humor we could have, we shared pictures and jokes, made comments and our daily life got a little more light from all the things that we have to do along the day and got to know each other a little more! And no one argued about the rightness or wrongness of the answer we gave! I really enjoyed this GIRAFFE 3 DAYS "PUNISHMENT"
