Rowan and I are on a day trip today, but we opened my 30 Rock gift before leaving. My poor baby has the sniffles today, so I let him handle the present inspection before and after. I could feel that the gift was in a jewelry type box, but it was also pretty heavy. I guessed it was special rocks or gems, probably discovered by Nicholas Cage, used in the defense of the hiding place of more Dead Sea Scrolls, the discovery of which hasn't been released yet lest it spoil my 30 Rock surprise gift #5. No, but close. It was lots of adorable little dog ornaments. They are so cute, and Rowan thought so too. But I'm not so sure my guess was totally incorrect. I suspect that these are magic hounds that can actually be tasked with protecting hidden treasure, and if anyone unworthy approaches, the seemingly harmless dogs become real and spring into action!!**
*I'm not certain this is true. I'll inspect more closely when I get home.
**Turns out, no, the dog ornaments aren't magic, they are terra cotta. But they were hand crafted in Bangladesh, a country that is very dear to me. Amar gan- "my song"....is a random thing I remember how to say in Bengali.
