Our entities also had a fondness for cardboard boxes! Some sit about with their wrappings still inside, while others have been carefully flattened and squirrelled away in far corners, perhaps in case of later shortages.

It's an interesting theory, but I wonder if my house would elicit something Lovecraftian, or perhaps just the simple message, repeated over and over,
ALL THESE WORLDS ARE YOURS EXCEPT 6620 PINE ROAD
ATTEMPT NO LANDING THERE

When the roof partially fell in on my grandmother's attic, we went up there to clean the splinters and bits of roof off of everything and found...

Boxes, nested inside boxes, nested inside boxes, sometimes eight or nine deep, piled as high as the ceiling in several places. She'd been saving them to store things that she'd planned to move to the attic, but had never quite managed to get up there. (Some of them probably went in the trash first.)

And each and every box - even the ones inside others - was full of roof-splinters.
