I’ve started this post several times now, and scrapped every word of it every time. Nothing I write seems to really work; nothing conveys what I want to convey. So now I’m just writing.
The title was originally “The Souvenir”. I like this title better. It can double up syntactically, making either a question or an exclamation. I like that title because it does reflect well what I am trying to convey. So; to answer the question.
