My old rolling briefcase. Handle too short. Noisy on it's wheels. A bit too wide. Zippers that catch. Heavy. Still smells a bit from having a flight attendant dump an entire pot of hot coffee in it over the atlantic. Finally turfing it after 14 years. It's been to 16 countries and 25 US states with me. Travelled over 275,000 miles. It really is a piece of shit, and always has been. Smells like it too. Never liked it. But strangely enough, I'm going to miss it.

I got up and walked back to my office about a block away and he rode on my shoulder the whole way whereupon a gentle wave from my colleague got him to fly away. Not until, of course, he left a delicate little poop on my sweater, in between my shoulder blades.
