Sanitized for Your Protection

It was Joyce's idea, and a good one. She wore it all more properly.

The original had artistic license, and couldn't have been actually done, due to the realities of the weight of some materials and the weakness of others. Also we would have needed a screwdriver.

Sometimes archeologists do get it wrong.

For anyone reading who doesn't know what's being historically-re-enacted here, keep an eye out for the book Motel of the Mysteries. It's about what people know, and why, and how, and the importance of archeology. Or something.

An anthropology prof showed me Motel Of The Mysteries in college. I never imagined anybody writing a joke doctoral thesis and publishing it as a book. I bought about three of them and over the years, handed them all out as gifts. I like your sense of humor. I can see myself trying this out, but also use the nylon bristled aspergillum for anointing my friends with the holy water.

I'm glad to have your note, Timothy. Sorry I didn't approve it sooner. I need to give this blog a tune-up!

That book
