When I saw all the nifty new datebooks everyone else has, i realized that this poor thing has been working way past its retirement date:
I think I've been using it for about seven years, so it's had a good run.
I've had the replacement in hand for a few weeks.
It turned up at the thrift store for $.99, so I think it's fate.
I wish it were a brighter color though, since these things have a habit of burrowing into the bottoms of bags.
That's why the last one was red.
And I think I don't want to know what this is made of.
If it really annoys me, I may have to go out and find one I like more.
