old / new

I've carried the same wallet with me for the last six years. This Coach leather wallet has been in my back pocket nearly everyday since it was given to my as a gift. It's been through vacations, bike rides, long road-trips, and God knows how many accidental rinse cycles. Recently I was browsing a shopping outlet and found the exact same wallet. It was then, when I was holding the new wallet side-by-side against the old wallet, that I realized how beat up the old one was.

I purchased it and when I got home, I moved the contents of the old one into the new one. But it felt odd; a bit too unfamiliar; like new shoes that hurt your feet. After a day, I picked the old one out of the trash, and put the new one in a drawer. Maybe one day it'll get used, but not today.
