elegy for a nerf

Today we bid farewell to the little Nerf basketball. Though quiet and seldom seen, he was always good for a quick game of catch. The perfect weight - heavy enough to bounce on the floor, but light enough to bounce off a sibling's head to get his/her attention without causing harm. He joins dh's ipod headphones, several of Stuntman's socks, the player's manual for Robots on the PS2, a big hunk of the living room couch, 2 TV remotes, and many other objects, all helped along to the other side by Caramel the dog.
Farewell, dear friend. Like the others, our lives are just a little bit better for having known you.

This was fun to read. I am so sorry for your losses (a hunk of the couch?!) I can't believe how big she is! You have way more patience than I do.
