We’ve been thinking a lot about immigration here at fortytwentyfour…no not that; although Los Suns are now our favorite basketball team.
We’ve actually been thinking a lot about the recent group of immigrants who appeared during our housewarming. Our friends Andrew and Jen (possibly with accomplices?) bought a bunch of odd little plastic figurines and hid them around the house for us to discover over what appears to be the rest of our lives.
Typical of our recent conversations:
Me: “I found another figurine”
Catty: “Where? I found another one as well.”
Me: “In the spare toilet paper rolls, where was yours?”
Catty: “Hidden inside of the salt pig.”
We’re fairly certain we’ve found most of these little guys—there’s a fairly massive collection on the kitchen island. But we’ve already started to make plans on how to use them—we have a plan, but it’s top secret.
Here’s a few examples of what we’ve been finding:
A frightened (and frightening) cat
A Canadian Mounty and Red Rooster
Keeping watch over the CD collection
Escapees from Canada and China
Crazy cat lady
Kitten amongst the jewelry
Mini toothpaste and another nun
A soldier and a tiny rabbit
This was a Just Add Water growing alligator (we found it in a spare bathtub)
A very creepy baby inside a vase
These were definitely the most interesting (and odd) housewarming gifts we received, and can’t wait to implement our plans for the future with these little guys.
