In my classroom, I had a tissue box modeled from this Easter Island rock statue. Students could pull tissues from its nose.

I had forgotten about this prop until Andrew Gott told me he remembered the day that Brian Valentine was walking around my classroom wearing this Easter Island rock as a mask. I was trying to get him settled to do some work and I frustrated I said, "Brian, it's a good thing that love and hate are the same thing - the two strongest emotions a human can have - because I love you so much right now, I want to kill you!"

Gott's memory put a smile on my face.
