[this is good] These ethical dilemmas are the worst. I have the same problem with shoe strings. When one string breaks, do you replace them both, dooming one of the star crossed lovers to an untimely death, or do you replace one and break up another happy union, leaving a lonely mate to pine away in a dark drawer?
This is why I drink.

Love hurts. Love scars. You know the rest...and let us not blame the state of your liver on shoe laces, pal. Well, at least not the male ones. Teeny lights are the bane of my existence. It never fails. I appreciate all your efforts to revive the dead string though. Those lights never had it so good.

Nooo! Don't let them die. I'd just keep them, for the sake of memories.

karen
