First off, I think I'll now start using people's full initials here when I talk about them because everyone I know seems to have a name that starts with the same couple of letters, and it gets really confusing, so...first and last initials now.
So anyway, I got this box in the mail today from BJ, and that in itself is always a little scary because I can pretty well guarantee it's going to be part of some dead thing. Not like gross horrible stinky dead thing, but well-preserved tidy dead thing. Dead thing nonetheless. I should feel blessed to get such interesting mail. And today was no exception. Wrapped nicely in Christmasy colored tissue paper was a leg bone from an Aseel rooster. Cool! This is to help me with my illustration of the Aseel rooster (as far as getting spur placement and shape correct) but all I could think of when I saw this odd thing dangling off a little string was "oh my word, this is the most disgusting Christmas ornament!"
So of course I had to take a picture. Obviously it's not really an ornament, but at this time of year, my twisted brain could turn most anything into something that should hang on the tree! It was definitely the most entertaining moment of my day. How festive! ;-)
