Day 80: Wickerman

Today's Task: 2/13

"Begin eating a piece of furniture."

This task is sufficiently creepy for a Friday the 13th! According to the direction in the book, all you need is a nail file, a piece of unfinished wooden furniture and about eighty years worth of patience. File off a small amount of sawdust and sprinkle it on top of your food. Try this every day for the next eighty years or until the entire piece is digested.


I don't know if I'm willing to try this one. Though I'm sure the pencils I've gnawed since childhood all add up to at least an ottoman's worth of lumber, I don't think I can knowingly devour wood chips. Anyone willing to do this one? Let me know how it goes. :)

Now that IS insane!
Although, I can imagine the triumph of finally, 80 years down the line, swallowing down the last mouth of dust and being able to say "I ate a bookcase". What an achievement!

But what is the point of this activity?

What is it trying to teach us?

The point, for me, was that you can achieve even seemingly impossible tasks if you are persistant.
