To amuse you while I attend to work that needs doing, I offer a picture of an object on my desk at work.
A couple of questions for you, dear readers:
1. What is this?
2. Why do I have it?
(I did not, in fact, get it for myself. It was given to me in a specific context. If necessary, I’ll entertain yes-or-no questions in the comments to help you along.)
The first commenter who answers both questions correctly gets to assign me the topic of my next substantive post.
