Do you remember the first thing you bought on Amazon?
A woman named Casey Fiesler recently made a fun game out of answering that question when she sent a tweet that’s since gone viral:
Let’s play a game. Go to Amazon, to “Your Orders,” and with the year drop-down, find the earliest year listed… and then RT and tell us what the FIRST thing you ever bought on Amazon was. Bonus points for it being nearly 20 years ago. 🙂 #BabysFirstAmazon
