If you are a fan of Big Brother, you’ll know exactly what basket I’m talking about. If not, the head of household basket is a group of items prepared by the families of the Big Brother contestants in case they become head of household. If they win that competition, they are free from eviction that week and get to move into a special, private bedroom with pictures and fun things from home, including the head of household basket.
The other night I was watching the show and they did a close up of the basket. That got me to thinking…what would I want in my basket? In the event that I was a contestant on Big Brother, I wanted to make sure the people (friends and family) who would be preparing my basket were clear on what should be included…
1. Coca Cola (surprise!)
2. Baked Cheetos
3. Reeses Peanut Butter eggs
4. My iPhone (that includes my Scrabble app)
5. The Godfather by Mario Puzo
6. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt
7. A bottle (or 3) of Malbec (red wine)
8. Homemade chocolate chip cookies
9. Deck of cards
10. Law and Order DVDs
Now, I’m not quite sure of the HOH basket guidelines, so I’ve chosen the top ten things that would make me happy. Were any of my list a surprise? What would be in your basket?
