Whatchmacallit 142: Ա (A) (To be deaccessioned)

Ա (A)

I’ve been engaged in random cleaning of late, in doing so, I ran across this small key chain Ա – the Armenian letter A. I bought it in 2006 during my first visit to Armenia, when I was really enchanted with the Armenian Alphabet – when I bought and then foolishly gave away a small tapestry of the Armenian Alphabet, since replaced.

Ignorance is sometimes bliss, because I just asked what the message below the Ա says, and it says, “God save you.”

Whoops!

As an atheist, not really a message for me; though I should have guessed given the prominent cross above the Ա.

The thing fell off the ring it was attached to very quickly, so this has spent much time, uh, gathering dust.

It is nice, but I really have no idea what to do with it – so it is probably going to be deaccessioned in the near future.


During the Covid-19 crisis, I am going to try and make a point of writing a blog post about an object in my home.

We’ll see how long this lasts.
