Time Well Wasted

Most afternoons when the weather is warm, Tom Goss can be found somewhere on the University of Michigan Diag, slapping a small piece of oak against the grain of an old Chore Boy washboard. The steady, scratchy rhythm echoes through the Dennison Archway and bounces from building to building — married with melodic notes pouring from his harmonica and the beat of a small percussion instrument tucked under the laces of his left shoe. For the past 11 years, the Ann Arbor resident has turned heads, perked ears and raised eyebrows on the diag — and even had a Facebook page started in his honor. It turns out the Chicago native who came to Ann Arbor in 1980 actually is a research lab technician on campus and just likes wasting time after a long day's work.
