I managed to remove it from the computer desk; it was hiding under another hat. I did it ever so delicately that I didn't disturb much if anything in the area. I was given a firm no, and was told bad :(
I'm laying in my "nest" now feeling i'm not sure what really. It's a combination of remorse and a sore tummy from eating plastic (again). The hat has since been thrown out. :(
Going to lay low tonight.
