Ask for it back

If I ask you to give me something you own, in order to fulfi l my request you’ll have to give it up. You might do so, or you might not. It depends on how much you value ‘it’ (including not at all), and how much compensation you need to secure a suitable (perfect or imperfect) substitute. It seems I’m stating the obvious. And I would forgive you for admonishing me for the very same, but all’s not well in the ‘possession’ camp; it’s complicated.
