Today I say goodbye to an old friend:
This is my favorite t-shirt, which I've had since high my junior year (or so) in high school. (Whoa - that was nearly 10 years ago!) When I bought it at a local thrift shop, it was already soft from years of casual wear. I wore it out. And then, when I finally felt that it was too indecent to wear around, I retired it to sleepwear. Over the years, it's gone completely threadbare - it's so thin that it has runs in it like pantyhose! I've known for about a year that I should really throw it away, but didn't have the heart. Now the runs have become sizable holes, and I can deny the truth no longer - the time has come. Goodbye, old friend - you lived up to your slogan!
