Today's Trivia Quiz

I was surprised that the percentage is as high as it is.

Only one in five of us has one of these in the kitchen what is it?
apron

Today's question is

More of these are given as gifts, than purchased for our own personal use... what are they?

I make up for everyone else. I have many many aprons. I sometimes use ONE of them. The rest are from my mom and grandmother. I'm not really all that sure that covering the very bottom of your outfit with a piece of tissue (ok, maybe not, but man it is so thin!) is going to help against gravy getting on you. It surely is pretty and frilly. :) Very 50s.

Gift cards is all I can think of. But why would anyone ever buy it for themselves? I guess you could, but it's not really sensible. Ooh, I have it. Strippers!

I guess I'm the 1 in 5 that wears an apron. Love them!

My first thought was a dozen roses or other types of floral arrangements/bouquets.

I do however like rob's answer :) Strippers can be the perfect gift for those difficult to buy for people!

I remember getting singing telegrams back in the day. Are they still around?

They kind of are; on Valentine's Day, local barbershop singing organizations offer quartets delivered to your home to sing a special message. They are very nice, if you like things that are attention getters.

And no, they're not strippers. :)

I should think of aprons before I cook. I have several, but only think about using them when I spill or splatter.
