Easter Memories

Once upon a time, I had a lot of bamboo skewers at my desk. I really have no idea what they were doing there. This was several jobs back, when I was working in the same office as krasota and explodingcat. One of our coworkers brought in some peeps. Then we started talking about how their coloration and shape don’t occur in nature.

Of course, this is about the same time I was reading Hyperion.

The logical thing to do was impale peeps on the bamboo skewers and tape them to the borders of our cubicles. Right up through the chest. Like a warning to other peeps.

All different colors, it didn’t matter. All peeps were the same in the eyes of krasota, explodingcat, and myself. If they had the bunny rabbit peeps back then, rest assured that they would have been up there.

I seem to recall that they were up for about a month before they asked us to take them down.

Good times.

Update: explodingcat reminded me that over time, their colors faded and they appeared to grow bald. That was weird.
