Ode to the New

"Mom, Mom, look what I bought!"
"Hmmm. It's a teddy bear." Lifts with thumb and index finger. Studies at a distance.
"This nice lady with the yard sale just gave it to us. And it was only a quarter. Isn't it nice?"
Studies at a distance. "What's that stain?"
"I don't know."
"Mommy will wash it first."

Deb is right.
Sometimes, you just want new. Sometimes, the story that goes with the yard sale find is one you don't want in your house...
