I Wanna Do Bad Things With You

Yesterday I got a notice in my mail saying I had a package to pick up. I went to Canada Post, and was handed a large box from Amazon, marked as a gift. What could it be? A surprise present from a secret admirer trying to win my affections? I eagerly tore it open.

It's....well, it appears to be a box of seven young-adult urban fantasy novels. Who would send me such a thing?

Dude, that's hilarious and awful and I want to make fun of you so badly... But can I borrow those sometime...?

Jen said...

I think he means hilarious and amazing. Your drunk self should probably browse amazon more often.

Dan: Seeing as how I have a half-dozen borrowed books of yours on my shelves, I guess I can't say no.

Jen: Hehe, I don't think my sober self could afford much more of it.

Too funny.

Jennifer said...

I've heard those are good..but I didn't realize they were YA.

Question - are YA writers getting better, or adults stupider?

Phronk said...

I've seen them classified as YA. But if the show is any indication, the sex and violence would put more emphasis on the A than the Y.

Haha and good question. There's probably just more YA lately, so more good authors, and more adults flocking to it.

Oh... I watch that show.

I'm impressed you were able to place an online order while that drunk. Are we going to have to put a breathelyzer device on your keyboard & mouse?

Phronk said...

Haha might be a good idea.

But for the record, I wasn't that drunk. Just tipsy enough to think "wow, good deal, and I sorta want it, so I'll impulse-buy it and write a funny message that I hope I won't remember writing later."

I did remember but it was still funny. God I'm hilarious.

Just imagine what the people at the Amazon warehouse thought when they printed it off.
