it's good to have pictures in your wallet, in case you forget what your children and lovers look like. it's good in case anyone finds you dead on the side of the road, so that they can see what kind of a person you were. if you ever lose your wallet, maybe someone will return it to you, if they like the pictures. maybe if they think you know all the right kinds of people, they'll take pity on your loss. maybe the heavy, omnipotent stare of your first daughter, in her sweet sixteen ballgown, will guilt them into bringing it back.
