Do you have something that is so special to you that you can't give it up? Well I have a body pillow that is way past it's prime and I am embarassed to let anyone see it. It's out of shape, kinda ratty but I love sleeping with it. Do you have something you can't give up that is way past it's prime?

Hi, well yes i think each one of us, actually dont realise it, but we all do have somethingor the other thats very dear to us, and we cannot actually part with it, and whenever the question of parting with it comes, we always have a ready answer or excuse, not to let go! No matter what the real state of the thing maybe, right! Well i also have an old pair of slippers, that i just love to wear most of the time, and i have them since the past 5-6 years, and they are so comfortable on my feet too, that any new slipper seems so tight and rough. Guess they have becopme so worn out now and dont look good either, but just my feet love to wear them !!:)

Cozy and comfortable. Who could ask for more! No wonder you cling to them!

Thanks for replying, and yes thats very truly the reason i love them, and nothing can ever take its place too, funny but true how small , old, worn out things like these tend to become our favourite and stay so too. ANd no matter how many new things we may buy, but somehow these oldies, are always our favourites :)

I have a 1988 Jeep Limited that is in great shape...but needs a little work on the gaskets...I can't seem to give up my tried and true vehicle to get through the big snow drifts in the MInnesota winters. I drive a Monte Carlo in the summer but will probably go back to the Jeep this winter.

Actually I don't. I have moved quite a few times in my life and every time I move I tend to get rid of a lot of useless clutter.
