When I wrote about the KISS play set and my diverse co-workers, I am sure some of the readers had some doubts about my words. We’re all prone to exaggeration. Why would I be any different? I could reiterate my stance and demand that you believe me. Instead, I will illustrate my point with a recent episode. It also involves the KISS play set.
Some fantastic reorganization of various textbooks by a co-worker yielded some free shelf space. We could have used the space for more books, or reference material. Instead, a home for the KISS stage was found.
This morning, another co-worker briefly glanced at the set, mere moments before we were due in class and declared rather loudly, “That isn’t right.”
Some perked their ears. Some rolled their eyes. I just became curious.
“Ace Frehley is playing the wrong instrument. And Gene Simmons isn’t left handed.” Rather than proceed to class, the entire set had to be checked over for inconsistencies and errors, and those were rectified on the spot.
No one seemed to think this was a bad idea.
Have I illustrated my point?
