Drabble Challenge #89

Prompt: old

part 1 of the series: Discarded and Replaced

"Don't you think it's time we got rid of that old thing?"

"It's been in my family for years."

"Yes, but it's also falling apart. It's noisy; it breaks down all the time... and I'm pretty sure it's not supposed to smell like that."

"It's got character."

"But the maintenance cost is so high! We're spending a fortune just to keep it going."

"I know, but look at it. I can't just get rid of it."

"You're being sentimental. I love the old thing too, but we have be practical here."

"You're right, of course... Sorry, Grandpa. You gotta go."
