On What’s On Your Nightstand?

The Smuldering Award to Kristen Arnett and Snow:

on my nightstand: three empty beer bottles, 14 books piled in a stack that’s threatening to turn over in the night and murder me in my sleep, a candle that is supposed to smell like vanilla but is maybe more like candy corn, matchbook from an Ybor strip club, a phone charger that does not work, a coaster I never use that I took from a chilis restaurant / Snow: Is this you?
