Six Kadam High (in which I prove what I giant geek I am)

So, among my many tools at work, I have one that we lovingly call the Staff of Ra. It's a telescoping pole, about six feet tall at its shortest, that extends to eighteen feet; we use this tool to attach magnetic hooks to our ceiling from which we hang signs. Years ago we lovingly dubbed this tool the Staff of Ra, after the six-foot-long stick one uses in Raiders of the Lost Ark (in conjunction with the crystal-studded Headpiece) to focus a sunbeam onto the floor map of Tanis, thus revealing the location of the hidden Well of Souls, where the Ark of the Covenant resides. Remember that? Sure you do!

Anyway, this week at work we start a big modification project that involves installation of some extra refrigeration infrastructure on the roof, which in turn means that today, those technicians had to cut a hole in the roof. Late in my shift I'm walking back to my work area and I stop, because I saw the sun shining down from the roof and making a sunbeam.

So I grabbed my Staff of Ra, and took this picture.

When they cut a hole in your roof at work, OF COURSE you reenact the Map Room scene from RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK!!! #indianajones #SorryNotSorry

Yes. That is how giant a geek I am, folks!

Did you remember to take back one Kadam to honor the Hebrew God?
