I am under normal circumstances a tidy and organized person. But occasionally I find fairly startling things in my house. One time it was a house spider that I had to use a coffee can (A COFFEE CAN) to catch and dispose of. Another time it was a monograph by Stephen Greenblatt that, as it turns out, did not belong to me and so I was not responsible for dealing with it either on a theoretical or a practical level. This time it was five-disc boxed set of Kirsten Flagstad singing a selection of baroque arias, some Lieder, and a lot of Wagner.
I do remember buying this, but I can’t remember when, or what specifically sparked my interest. I don’t object to it at all. I listened to parts of the Wagner this afternoon. They’re nice. I intend to listen to the rest of it when I have time this week. But it makes me wonder what else is lurking in my house that I am unaware of.
