Is it odd

that I want to replace all tech items with newer, better versions as soon as those new releases are available, but I feel betrayed by the fact that a bathing suit I bought in 1995 and have used since then recently split entirely in half?

I don't think so.  Clothing should last forever.

I have learned, however, that not everyone agrees with me.  In fact, some apparently consider my attitude downright odd.

I, obviously, do not.

That's a guy thing. I can't speak for all women, but most of us don't keep clothing for 20 years. Mostly because it probably no longer fits, but usually because our taste has changed and the styles are extinct. I do admit to owning some acid washed jeans and bomber jacket from the 80's, and some suspender pants from my Mork and Mindy days, but sometimes, you have to put clothing to rest. Men don't understand that. Hence the really ripped up and torn sweatpants and underwear that you keep seeing on them. It really is a guy mentality.

Perhaps so. Most men I know, though, also think I'm dumb on this front.

At least you're in good company, Mark - LeBron's jersey also split in half during the Cavs' season opener. ;-)

BTW, I have a skirt & vest that I bought in the 70s that I'm still wearing (wool, classic style), but it's a pleasant anomaly for women's clothes to be serviceable so long, so Michelle is right.

Thanks for the note. That might be the first time I'm in LeBron's company!
