I had a busy week at work and no time to formulate a good blog post. Reality shows were about all I could handle after my long workdays, except the one night when I found myself choosing to watch an old episode of Medium after a few glasses of wine. The episode from last season where she dreams about the pig was fascinating with a few drinks under my belt. Anyway, last night, I was recovering from my hangover and a random event occurred that tied my real life to television (happens to me all the time, actually).
A while back, in a meeting, I noticed the profile of a colleague that looked kind of like this:
I thought to myself, who does he remind me of? Woody Woodpecker came to mind, but I knew that was not quite it. Then I remembered this toy my dad used to have on his desk. A bird with a hat that used to teeter over and dip its beak into a glass of water. That was it! This guy reminded me of the Dippy Bird!!! This realization was too weird to share with my newish work friends and no one outside of work knows the work guy (and most are too young to remember the dippy bird), so I have been living with this in silence, until now. Last night, I was catching up on Mad Men and THERE IS WAS!!! THE DIPPY BIRD ON MAD MEN!!! I was so excited. Here it is? See the resemblance?
I wish I could post a picture of the real guy…
