The Strange Things I Do For My Job (and Not)

Zuzu Tadeushuk

This morning I got a text from one of my agents asking me to send her a picture of each of my ears (apparently someone’s doing a jewelry shoot and needed to inspect my hoop-wearing potential--or something like that) but no one was around to take the pics for me so I wound up a few minutes later with a crick in my neck and a “Storage Full” pop-up on my phone—I had filled my camera roll with numerous miss-aimed and oversaturated snaps of my ears at various unfocused angles. Scrolling through the ear pics, though, I found them strangely fascinating: is there any rhyme or reason to why an ear is shaped as it is? Do all those folds and ridges help our hearing, or are they just for looks? Naturally, I sat down and, with a cup of coffee by my side (because nothing of importance can be accomplished without coffee, and what I was about to embark on was inarguably the most vital task I would do all day!) I made a study of ears in my journal.  I came to the conclusion that, after extensive scrutiny, ears begin to look remarkably like embryos, and are really rather queer. Don't you think?
