While it seems unlikely that I will ever see that long-gone cash, perhaps one day my debtor will be a famous artist and I can say I own some of his original NFTs.
Never mind the fact that Shiitake — as in the mushroom –is actually spelled with two “i”s. This adorable and sassy plush toy from Punchkins get the message across. Spotted at NY Now at Javits Center, which is always a fun time.
