The very definition of a product working against itself.

The sign, 
script writing painted on a wooden plank, 
made me smile in recognition
and I gave a respectful nod to its very ‘rightness’. 

At a different point in my life, 
I would have thought nothing of plunking down $20.00 
and bringing it home to hang on a wall 
as a daily reminder.

“The secret to having it all is recognizing that you already do.”

The advantage of being as old as I am 
is realizing that I do indeed have it all –
which, by definition means I don’t need the sign.

I came home empty handed
but richer nonetheless.
