Not How It Ought To Be

The computer was going slow this morning. Ailz took a look at it- removed some impacted crud and got it to move a little faster. "Really, it's time to buy a new one," she said.

A new one? But I've only had this one for just over two years.

Yes, I know, I know. That's how things are these days. But I'm not happy with it. The old-time craftsman in me is affronted. Your tools are an extension of the body. You care for them, they last a lifetime. And then you pass them on to your heirs.
