A green-ish shade of red

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I'm certainly not. But I'm sick and tired of being told that I am.
- Monty Python

I agree 100%.


I write today to mourn the loss of my watch band. It broke today while I was reaching for something and the end of it got caught on the edge of the counter, and snapped off. We all looked on in shock as it fell to the floor, bounced a few times, and came to a sickening, heart-wrenching, thudding stop.

I don't think that any of us -- at that moment -- realized exactly what it meant: the loss of a long-held, deeply-felt friendship. Indeed, every single day that wrist band was felt against my lower arm/wrist. Every day. For years. I've know people and other animals less time than I've known this wrist band. How do you replace a loss like this?

Sure, you can simply go to the mall and buy a new one, but is it the same? Just because it's the same color/brand/model, is it the same?
