A new member of the family

I would like to introduce you all to a new member of our family. No new babies {thank heavens!! Benjamin still needs to cook for a while longer} Not a new dog... no thank you... not right now anyway, I already have too much dog hair to deal with.
Oh, no, we have some bones... real bones! The husband went to a conference and while he was there he decided that he needed some bones, and plastic ones would not do. What else is there... yup, real people bones. These ones have come from India, and are about 20 years old and have been bought and sold a couple times. These are the C1 and C2 vertebrates...
Personally, I think it's kinda gross. I mean really... they are real!!! And I haven't decided if it's worse knowing that they are 20 years old or if he would have waited {and waited} he could have gotten bones from a newly deceased person. Really???? How/why do you sign up for this?

My next question... what happens at the Resurrection? The bones are sold all over the world, in pieces...

Oh... look at how proud he is! The bones are names Raji and they have taken residence on the shelf. {pushed back far enough so I don't feel like they are looking at me}

Nice Steve. When Aaron was in Med school, I woke up one morning with a skull (a real human skull) laying on the pillow next to me. He thought it was funny, I was grossed out.
