Background: Today when Andy went back to the bank to get our latest statement notarized, stamped, signed in blood, etc, I walked over to Active Imagination, the local family-owned gives-back-to-the-community type of game shop. While there I went through a bunch of loose dice and found three pairs of d6es. Since GURPS uses d6 exclusively and since he's the GM, I decided to get the lot for him. We brought them home and he put them on the table. As I was leaving for Kitty City I noticed one was missing, but couldn't find it. When I got home and set the table I discovered that none of them were left, though I quickly found two. It turned out Andy had three of the others, leaving a clear d6 missing.
After a fruitless search including running a ruler under the refrigerator, Andy opted for some more alone time and went upstairs. I decided to pull the couch out.( Here is what I found:Collapse )
These things were all basically in the very middle area of the couch, as if kitty paws and arms which are thinner than our clumsy hands had pushed them in. I leave as an exercise for the reader whether they were trying to get the stuff out or push it further in. I have yet to find Heidi's real
battery graveyard, though.
