Halloween decorations are up in the office now, and one of them is a pretty elaborate skeleton ghost with glowing red eyes hanging from one of the light fixtures. What's funny about this is that he's* hanging so that he faces the people coming down the main hall, which also happens to lead to the bathrooms. So whenever I come out of there, the first thing I see is this dude staring at me with his glowing eyes, as if to say "How'd it go in there. Everything working okay?" Yes, skeleton ghost, everything is fine; thanks for asking.

* For some reason I think of this skeleton as a guy. This is probably an example of built-in gender bias.
