This story is the auto-biography of an inanimate object.
Books on the Nightstand highlighted this story from The New Yorker website. What prompted me to click the link was that there was an interesting narrator. I had no idea it was an inanimate object until I started reading. I don't like personification, but toughed it out -- it was short. :) It could have gone off the deep end, but didn't. I appreciated that.
