Two of we, plus three of ours, makes five of us.
I was working in the stock room for a K-Mart about 15 years ago and one of the promo pieces we got for some kids' books was a cardboard castle. The thing was practically 6-foot tall (and wide), with shelves on each wall to hold all the books. After the promo was over I had the job of disassembling it and was told to take it out the back to the compactor. "We're going to trash it?" I said to my Manager, in disbelief that something this cool was destined for such a short life. "Can I have it?" I asked him. He saw no reason why I couldn't (K-Mart were pretty funny about letting employees just take things, even those destined for the trash) so once all the pieces were back in the stock room I pulled my car around to the loading bay and one of the guys helped me fill my car with disassembled castle. 'Fill' being the operative word.When my shift was over I drove around to my sister's house and said to her, "Do you remember that giant cardboard castle in K-Mart? Guess what I have in my car."We set it up in the corner of her living room and cut a hole in one side for a door and it stayed there for months. My niece & nephew loved it :)
Yeah that wouldhave been awesome.
