Towel day

May 26th, 2005 · 1 Comment · personal

I spend the day observing Towel day.

So I walked around all day with a black towel over my shoulder. I took it to two meetings, the coffee shop and to my quarterly performance review. All in all, I saw 19 colleagues.

Not once, not once, was I asked what the towel was all about. They just acted normal.

I am not sure how to interpret this fact. Either I fade into the background, or nothing I do can surprise them.

    Oh, too funny – reminds me of our college campaign to stamp out apathy. We made and wore buttons that said, “Stamp It Out!” The idea, of course, being to provoke the question, “Stamp WHAT out?” To which we’d reply “Apathy!” and hand ‘em a button. Whatever.

    Unfortunately, no one asked what the hell the buttons meant.
