#AtoZChallenge - Blue Bottle

Wow! Y'all were all about the Blue Bottle! Which I'm actually pretty excited about because you unlocked an Easter Egg - a little extra tidbit about Blue Bottle, which I've left you at the end of the post. Let's find out about that bottle...

Amy picked up the blue bottle on the table, ignoring its scrappier counterparts. Swirls of lighter color and the slight uneven curve at the bottle's neck gave it a handmade quality. Several loops of dark ribbon, adorned with buttons and other bobs, circled the neck in a manner not unlike a necklace. When Amy looked at a lantern through the bottle, she could see that it contained a viscous gas which seemed to glitter a bit as it oozed about the container. The cork stopper glittered a bit as well. Amy found herself at once both curious and uncertain about the possibility of pulling the cork.

What should she do?
Pull the Cork to examine its Contents?
or Continue examining other Curiosities?

Easter Egg:
When I attended summer camp one of my favorite camp friends used to sing a song called Blue Bottle. This is the refrain:
I have a little present here for you
Inside this tiny bottle, so very small and blue
Please do not uncork it, simply put it on away.
For inside there lies a summer's day.
Put it on away...

    Continue examining is my choice for today! Great post :)

  2. I vote for examining the contents.


  3. This is a dilemma...if you take the Blue Bottle refrain into consideration. How curious are you to uncork and take a chance on unleashing a catastrophe. On the other hand...a Genie...we all know that could go either way. Hmmmm...I vote for...other Curiosities and save the Blue Bottle for the Letter 'G'. Best of Both 'B's.

  4. Pull It! I would want to know what's inside! This could be the start of a beautiful adventure whether the contents of the bottle are good or bad.

  5. Pull the Cork to examine its Contents! I am curious to know what's inside the strange bottle. I see a lot of possibilities :)
    Love the way this is going, AJ :)

  6. Examine the other stuff. Go back to the bottle later. Opening it could be a bad idea and maybe there's a clue about it's contents elsewhere?

  19. Look at the other bottles and come back to this one if nothing else is interesting...

  20. Pull the Cork! Especially since the song says not to do so. ;)

  21. Never pull the cork. It could be a deadly trap!

  22. I vote for pull the cork. :)
