While I could lie and pretend that Craig ceremoniously gifted me with this adorable little chess set, it was more like, I’m going to throw this away because it’s missing a pawn? Prawn? Pawn? and I decided that I needed it because I just really like things that are small. Granted I know nothing about chess, or chess playing, save the Thanksgiving flight I spent tripping on Dramamine and watching Searching for Bobby Fischer, but I’m really excited to add this little guy to my collection of things that I don’t need but now have, much of which is stuffed into boxes in some forgotten storage space in Brooklyn. Speaking of things that are small, yes those ARE tiny children playing with dogs on my dress, and they ARE happy to see you.
