    only partially destroyed, fortunately. you’ll not be surprised to know that i still have it, stored somewhere in my collection of collections along with the penguin collage that covered the wall near that window. i also have a picture of someone’s purse, made in the manner of that lampshade, along with a whopping-big assemblage of can tabs. next: “mouseholes” for the baseboards of little nippers, and then rubber bar-code bracelets for 13-year-olds to secretly display their BF’s names at the beach. the mind wanders . . . hello? . . . hello? . . . are you still there? . . . hello?
