Today, I have an announcement. But in the tradition of the Academy Awards and long drum rolls, I’m going to delay making it.
First, some history.
THING 1 & THING 2: THE TIMELINE
2004: I’m pregnant with twins. My husband and I refer to our unborn babes as Alpha and Omega, Leftie and Rightie, and Thing 1 and Thing 2.
Fast forward 5 years.
2009: I start blogging, and occasionally refer to William and Vivian as Thing 1 and Thing 2.
2010: My husband buys me Thing 1 and Thing 2 at a flea market. They become rather iconic at Ironic Mom.
- Thing 1 and Thing 2 go to Hollywood with my sister and me. Half of of Hollywood poses for photo ops with them, including an Elvis impersonator and 2 LAPD officers.
- I throw Thing 1 and Thing 2 in the wash and they come out looking like this:
- Kelly K comes to my rescue and finds replacements Things on eBay. We ship them to her house in Texas. She takes fantastic photos and blogs about their adventure.
- I announce this:
Yes, Thing 1 & Thing 2, the old pair with the Estelle Getty hair, hope to come and see you. To sign up, leave a comment on Thing 1 & Thing 2’s Excellent Adventure page. There you will find more information, only some of it repetitive.
