Things My Family Owns That I Don't Understand







Every time I visit my parents, they have acquired a new completely baffling item of dubious origin. Last December this came in the form of a seven-foot tall Santa statue in the middle of our foyer. Then there was the "power tower" for chin-ups, dips and leg raises. This time it's battery-operated, oversized Incredible Hulk hands that growl when you set them forcefully down on the ground.

My father collected the most hiddiously ugly Toby Mugs... And had to display them where everyone could see... I cringed every time I'd visit.

If comment number one is from the current boyfriend, then that is kinda sweet.
I think the boyfriends name is Nick so if that is not this dudes middle name then that is also kinda sweet, and by sweet I mean in that kinda weird and inappropriate sweet way.

If you don't understand Hulk Smash hands, then you're not the girl I thought you were.

My mom has a garage full of RANDOM collections. Cans of dead batteries, pieces of poster board, crutches, a gorilla suit... maybe a sister I never knew about? There's no telling...

You must put the Hulk hands on to know their true power.

Even better, put one on your hand and one on a friend's and high five to the tune of "Hulk Smaaaaaaash!" It's awesome.

Noelle,

It's proof that I have too much time on my hands, but have you noticed those two green fists are posed backwards? Think about it.
