This has been an on-going problem for about a year now.
I bought a funny gnome last year and placed it in my yard. I KNOW where that one came from…
Suddenly, another appeared. I didn’t think too much of it- and I asked everyone in the house, no one here purchased any additional gnomes.
Not long after THAT, I found ANOTHER one that looked like it was smoking weed in my garden- I KNEW that couldn’t be a fluke. I don’t even know where to buy a marijuana smoking gnome, for god sakes!
Again, I question the people in my house, folks on Facebook, family members- no one ‘fesses up.
Months went by and I forgot about the previous gnome incidents until this evening, when I discovered not ONE, but THREE little gnomes sitting in a messy garden bed near my steps. They are “Hear No Evil, See no Evil, Speak no Evil” gnomes. I was told by the manny that they’d been there for about a week- I didn’t even NOTICE THEM (as usual) til today. I’ve not been very vigilant about weeding my garden beds this year, so I have no idea whether there may be more of them in the underbrush or what…
People have suggested that I ‘take them on adventures’- but I don’t have just ONE gnome, I have an ENTIRE FREAKING COLONY FORMING!! If I took them anywhere, it would look like the gnome version of Jim Jones’ colony in Guyana.
I might as well make gnome-sized grape kool-aid and resign myself to this every-growing invasion of gnome-titude.
Whoever my gnome benefactor(s) is/are, thank you. You’re twisted people who obviously delight in driving me crazy.
I am officially perplexed. This is one of the funniest, weirdest, longest running mysteries to ever happen to me.
