One-time treasure

one-time-worthThis truck was once someone’s dream vehi­cle. They had a huge amount of pride dri­ving it off the dealer’s lot for the first time. Wash­ing the dirt away to keep it shiny clean was a joy. Show­ing the amaz­ing new fea­tures to the next-door neigh­bors was a delight.

No more.

Why did I feel com­pelled to remind you — and me — of how short plea­sure lasts? I dunno. Maybe just to say we should enjoy it while we can! We were designed for plea­sure, and if it lasted for­ever there would be no contrast.
