Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. September, 2012

My friend Steven has a thing for publicity-crazed New England Patriot Rob Gronkowski. And so when Dunkin’ Donuts announced its contest with a “Lunch with Gronk” prize, he was beside himself. If the winner were to be decided by the number of photos someone takes of his friends with this larger-than-life cardboard cutout of the promotion-savvy tight end, Steven would be sure to win. (He had taken 23 at last count two weeks ago.) Here I am, a latecomer to the game, somewhat more amused than interested or involved. I wish Steven luck. (And I thank my late friend Coral Browne for teaching me the “fingers around the side” maneuver seen here and here.)
