Normal, Right?

The limbs from these Star Wars "Guys" (as we refer to them around here...even the female action figures) continue to disappear one arm (or head) at a time. Tiny hands and stray forearms can sometimes be found oh, in a teacup (sometimes with a few sips remaining). Or in the hood of a sweatshirt. So the little Wiseguy dismembers them, then proceeds to stash the parts in odd places. All children do this, right? Not unlike cutting Barbie's hair. ***I swore off gratuitous parentheses for the New Year (and I am only half-kidding). I can't do it! See?! Not to worry...although the toys are admittedly age-inappropriate, we are past the stage of putting toys in our mouths (that accounts for me and the kid)...no choking on errant Q-Tip sized light sabers or Boba Fett helmets around here (thank goodness). Gum on park benches and gray snow are another story entirely. Boys are gross!

Someone has put stray action figures all over my house over doors on the molding / trim. The culprit is male, over 35...Normal? What is normal?
