We all had a bit of a scare yesterday when a mysterious box appeared in the living room. After a brief panic caused by the belief that the box might have been sent by terrierists, the Guardians came in and took the box downstairs. Once I stopped hyperventilating, I followed them, now more curious than alarmed. When I arrived downstairs, I found the Guardians unpacking a weird mix of fuzzy-looking shapes from the box. I climbed up on the bed to get a crunchy little bird’s eye view.
Once the box was completely unpacked, I jumped down to investigate all of the different objects. A couple of them looked like fancy, fuzzy boxes while others looked like weird, part fuzzy and part rope covered tubes. We’ve never received anything like this in a box before, so I had no idea what to make of it.
The Guardians studied a sheet of paper, and then they started putting different pieces together. The only other times I’ve seen them do this is after they come back from the place they call Ikea. I began to suspect that maybe they were constructing some kind of fuzzy night stand or something. I am a huge fan of tools and building, so I watched with great interest.
As the Guardians put the pieces together, they began to form a strange shape. There were flat parts connected with the fuzzy, ropy bits, and everything seemed to be going upward. I went and laid down on the bottom of the thing to see if I could get a feel for what it might be.
The fuzzy surface of the whatever-it-was felt very soothing. Eventually I fell asleep. I know not how long I slept, but when I awoke I was in My basket in the nearby corner. The weird thing that the Guardians had been building was nowhere to be seen. The box was gone too. I assumed I had dreamed the whole thing, and I closed My eyes and drifted back to sleep.
