Choose You Own Adventure: How Not to Pack (first of a, likely, series)

by Ken Houghton

You have three boxes. One is large, but has a very weak bottom. The other two are smaller and stable.

You pack the large, unstable box with (mostly children's) books, but are careful not to fill it to the top.

You attempt to carry the box of books down the stairs.

Do you:
  1. watch in horror as the books fall from the bottom early in your journey?
  2. make it to the turn in the stairs and end up in the hospital?
  3. realize immediately what will happen and move the other two boxes, leaving the large one for the next victim person?

Fortunately, in this case, the answer is (1).
