The other night my friend was over enjoying my big glorious deck.
The deck is about 6" above the roof of the building below, so lots of things fall through and are still visible at a tantalizing distance away.
My friend noticed a blue and yellow severed arm of an action figure on the floor between the slats. We grabbed some chopsticks and spent a pleasant few minutes trying to extract it. Ultimately we were successful, and by that time we had spotted the other severed arm (from the same action figure) as well as various and sundry other odd things.
Ultimately we were out there, digging for treasure through the slats in the deck with chopsticks, until it got too dark to see. In total we extracted another arm (from a different set than the first two), a nose (from a stuffed animal of some sort), pens, clothespins, pieces of mirror, a CD, $0.35, and numerous lighters.
It was great fun.
(The postscript is that the following day, my friends came over with their 8 and 9 year old kids. I showed them the stuff and gave them chopsticks, and their mother was disgusted and took away the chopsticks and gave them video games instead. Harrumph. Dis my game, will you?!)
