Don't you have a piggy around? I do.
He's got a very good ear and can give you ideas or fix some bad code, when you can't see clear through it, after so many hours of discouragement. Just talk loud enough for Teddy to hear you, but not enough for your co-workers to notice you're talking alone ("Hey! I'm not talking alone. I'm talking to Piggy.").
I even had co-workers borrowing it for few minutes.
I have this small metal plate I found on the street a long time ago. I still don't know what's its purpose.
