‘The white man wore a woman’s skirt made of funny colors. He grew whiskers out of his belt and carried a black swan with lots of legs and ribbons on it. He held the swan upside down, put the swan’s head in his mouth and bit hard. He also pinched its neck and squeezed its body until it screeched. (Unknown)
How do you know its time to replace your car, your blender or your underwear? Some simple rules apply.
- You are prepared and don’t care about the item breaking down just when you need it. (Ask how that turned out with my stove on a Thanksgiving Day with a turkey to cook!)
- You can’t sell it for enough to make it worthwhile. (What is worthwhile?)
- Everything seems to be working OK. (i.e.- the elastic is holding!)
- It’s paid for.
- You have taken good care of the item and kept it up to date, honored the warranty.
