I am such a dork

A few days ago I was in a discussion where, as will happen, literary techniques came up. In particular, Chekhov's gun: If a rifle is hanging on the wall in the first act, it will be fired before the story concludes.

It was only last night that I realised that the Chekhov in question was probably Anton (as in Cherry Orchard) rather than Pavel (as in Nuclear Wessels).

Oh dear.

I saw this on Sunday in my paper, but didn't find the link. Now it was practically handed to me, but isn't relevant to this post. But you get it anyway.
