We went to Mexico a year ago. We had an incredible time. We climbed pyramids and saw ruins and art. We went to a flea market and found all these mexican wrestling action figures in a booth. We decided to buy lots of them and give them away to all our friends. The people in the stand thought we were a little nuts for buying dozens of these dolls, but we were thrilled.
We came home and I unpacked. I put the dolls on the kitchen counter. Within days life sort of went insane. Family members got sick, entered the hospital and never came out. There was always something happening. Kidney stones and stolen wallets became routine events against the backdrop of chaos.
I tried to give two of the wrestling dolls to my nephews but they freaked out and hid from the dolls. So, the action figures have sat on the kitchen counter for a year, and have become a symbol of just how completely out of control life has become.

I don’t belive the dolls have anything to do with what goes on in your house.
There’s a lot of info on the web about “lucha libre”; take a look and explain to others why the dolls are made to look like that.
