It’s strange what tricks your mind can play when the question of “need” versus “want” rears its ugly head. “Need”, after all, is such a relative term. Realistically we need food, shelter, companionship, and a few other necessities. Logically, what we don’t “need” is Natalia Brilli’s leather matchbook cover embossed with matches. However it’s something that, at least personally, I desperately want. A fact that, given my status as a confirmed non-smoker, is distinctly puzzling.
- If I ever go camping (unlikely though that may be) I’ll know exactly where my matches are when it comes time to build a fire.
- I’d be able to impress friends and random acquaintances when I lit their cigarettes (if smoking wasn’t banned in the majority of restaurants and bars).
- Thanks to this cover, I’d be the most fashionable arsonist on my block.
