Surprise Packages

So last night I got home to see this massive box sitting in the middle of the living room.  As you can see from the picture, you could easily fit a babyseat in the box and have plenty of room left over.

Instantly, my mind raced with the awesome things that could have arrived in said treasure box.  Was it something for me for Christmas that Jen couldn't clean up in time? Could it be a Wii,
 XBOX, Castle Greyskull, Strawberry Shortcake's Summer Home? WHAT? 

Oh I was so excited when I casually asked, "what was in the box?" She just looked at me in disgust and pointed to something on the counter..."a book," she said.  I thought, "What the hell kind of book was shipped in that thing?" I looked at her and asked if she purchased an original print of the King James Bible cold off of the Gutenburg Press.

Nope The Empty Pot by Demi...Seriously? again, Seriously? We went online to fill out a return shipment form and it is suggested that we send it back in the original box.  Ok, lets look at this objectively...I am going to send a paperback book in a box that could hold a desktop PC.  

Here is what the book looked like compared to the box. It is a good thing they used 100 yards of that packing air bags...I would just hate to have that book move one millimeter in that 10 gallon container.

Amazon is so arbitrary with it's packing. Sometimes you get the Strawberry Shortcake Summerhouse Box (and who wouldn't want a SSSH?!) and other times you get the packing equivalent of a fat chick in spandex.
