I don’t even know how to start this post. An explanation would probably be best. Let me just say that this week’s photo took place at work. I’ll give you more in a minute.
Here is my hat:
Yes. Edward. With a mustache.
A few of the ladies in my office are Twilight fans. I haven’t read the books. Or seen the movies. Nothing to be shocked about as I still haven’t read Harry Potter. Edward’s cardboard cut-out ended up in the office as a birthday gift; a month long present with fun puzzle pieces to be removed one day at a time. And Edward has remained.
Edward likes the attention. He’s been dressed up several times. Last year for Derby he was a jockey. Another time he wore a bow in his hair. And if I’m not mistaken, he was also a pirate for a few days. So why not be a boat captain. He earned his mustache after the last movie came out. It seems fitting that get captain status now.
The thing that bugs me about Edward is his creepiness. He occasionally gets moved and when you walk into an empty office and see a man behind the potted tree in the conference room, your heart skips a beat. I’ve done several double-takes just to see that it’s a paper vampire. But I like him here. We should give him his own desk. With vampire accessories and what not.
Next week’s challenge is “down.” This will be a fun one to play with. Don’t forget to check out the flickr pool’s photos to see everyone else’s photos. Or click on the Challenger Roll page to view the challengers’ personal flickr streams and blogs. You might find your new favorite read.
