How many times have you visited your parents and wondered how you once lived there and didn’t notice all the strange stuff they hide? Holidays are coming, so you better be prepared for the weird collection that your parents might how off when you arrive. What vast storehouses of powerful memories our parents’ houses are. Try to look around, and you’ll certainly find something weird, especially some items that stick around for years. It turns out our parents are as weird as we are. Here are some Twitter reminders of what our parents hide in those big houses, collected by Diply.
1. Someone found a series of Russian nesting dolls based on the OJ Simpson trial.
This simply makes me go: Why? And why would anyone buy these?
