Yesterday we opened a small box of gifts and tea sent from a friend in China. As soon as we emptied its contents, Rothko had staked his claim on the box. It happens that boxes from China are particularly coveted by the brothers, as they love all the foreign smells to be found in them. In this particular case, we found Loki patiently plotting to steal the box as soon as Rothko left for the bathroom.
Needless to say, it was a very tense scene when Rothko returned to find Loki in the box, rapt in a pleasant reverie, dreaming about his next music video. The normally mild-tempered Rothko was incensed with what his brother had done.
