What Am I? Answer correctly and win a $10 Amazon gift card.

Read the poem. Can you guess what I am? First person to answer correctly  wins a $10 Amazon Gift card. Will reveal answer on Monday.

Translucent, thin like a swan’s neck
I sit in a box—waiting. Waiting for
someone to pop my protector—silver
boom gate. My juice is creamy, pure
—seasoned with grass. In the past,
I tempted infidelity; ladies’ revolt.


  1. Don't know...but here's where my mind went. Condom? What can I say, it's early, not enough coffee yet.

  2. I'm horrified to admit that is the first thing that came to my mind as well.....

  3. LOL, ladies, I'm afraid it's not, but I'm thrilled you've bitten the bait! ;-)

  4. Laughed at Leigh's answer!
    Champagne? No idea.

  5. Milk? But I am not sure about the 'tempted infidelity' thing so maybe not :(

    1. I got it ... milk bottle? Tempted infidelity ... i.e. you father is the milk man? LOL!

    2. +JMJ+

      This is a clever guess, too! =)

  6. +JMJ+

    I'm guessing that it's a birth control pill!

  7. No clue. But I just wanted to say I love the site redesign. Very nice.

  8. Seasoned with grass? What kind of grass.... :) Anyway, the only thing that came to my mind was chocolate. But chocolate isn't translucent and thin like a swan's neck, so I know that isn't right.

  9. Individual milk packets (the small ones they bring to the table when you offer coffee)?

    I'm definitely intrigued. Like the header too, very nice.

  10. Otter Pops? I don't think they taste like grass though.

  11. I can only think of milk bottle too!
    You have us stumped!

  12. It's got to be some sort of contraceptive!

  13. I'm assuming we only get one guess, right? I'll say that it's some sort of pipe or hookah...(I don't know drugs very well. Or at least I don't admit to.)
    Really curious to find out the answer!
