hole in the couch treasure hunt

so anybody who's been to our house in the past few months knows that us palmers have sort of an issue with losing our remote controls. so far we have lost two t.v. controls and one dvd control. we've searched high and low over the past little while for them all but always concluded that "scott must have thrown them in the garbage." even though we've never actually witnessed him throwing anything into the garbage we didn't know what other conclusion to come to.
until today.
after realizing that we had officially lost the third control james got a little investigatory. he was so determined and strong as he practically lifted our couch over his head with his bear hands (slight exaggeration) and as he did we could hear multiple objects bouncing around in the under boards of the couch.
we had obviously searched the couch many times before as that would be the most logical place for the controls to be. but what we didn't know until today was that there were super secret crevices for the controls to sneak down into the unknown black hole of the couch.
after a little snipping and much searching we found all sorts of wrappers, toys from the last couch owner and our two favorite treasures....
ta da! two out of the three missing controls. this is the dvd control and the first control that w lost MONTHS ago. as for the third control... scott probably threw it in the garbage.

Aha!!!! How did Scott get the remotes in the couch???? Why did James think to cut the couch open? This is all so interesting.

Okay so glad you posted this, you gave us hope that our controls are under there as well. We'd come to the same conclusion as you guys about the garbagem
