What a strange item to have in a pharmacy!!
I knew instantly that I could do something with these guys. Despite them being a classic toy, I'd never played with them as a child which makes them good material for this blog. And they are cheap. More than anything, I love free and cheap new things.
When I brought them home, Mark was more excited about them than I was, and what ensued was a history lesson in battle tactics. This has, hands down, been my favorite "New Thing" to execute so far, and while you might find this silly, I think we're genius.

This has been a comprehensive history of America war tactics, presented by the little green men and Mark, because while I know policy, he knows strategy.
But in all seriousness, we love you troops! Thanks for all of your service!
