My Take a Skull to Work or School Day

So after find­ing an old goat skull in my back­yard a few weeks ago and pro­claim­ing August 10 to be National Take a Skull to Work or School Day today was the day!


I arrived at the office of my day job with a cof­fee in one hand and my trusty skull in the other. National Skull Day had begun.


I kept the skull with me all day long. It sat next to my com­puter for the most part. I don’t know whether this is OH&S com­pli­ant or hygienic. I would pre­fer not to know.


I even took the skull with me to work meet­ings. For some rea­son my co-worker Sean had trou­ble con­cen­trat­ing on work dur­ing the above meeting.


And at the end of the day I took my skull home with me on my bike. I didn’t raise aware­ness of any­thing, nor raise money for a good cause, but when National Take a Skull to Work or School Day becomes a pop­u­lar mile­stone on cal­en­dars around the world I will be con­tent know­ing that I took part in the very first such day. And I did it alone. Or should I say, I did it together with my cool (although kind of gross) goat skull.


Leav­ing the skull aside entirely, YOU WORE A VEST. A nerdy, nerdy vest. See your vest, see your vest. (I really like the vest!)

Mel, he does noth­ing but wear knit­ted vests these days. I’m start­ing to worry.

Ps. I also secretly approve of all of his many vests.
