Life symbols

I've used the same briefcase, a semi-anonymous "Morzo" brand (left, below), for about two years. It was pretty cheap, so it's showing its age, and the zippers are failing. I had been thinking of buying another when my wise wife suggested that I convert our Eddie Bauer document bag (right) for my own use instead.

[Two briefcases]

We've had the Eddie Bauer bag at least twice as long as my briefcase, and it's put up with more abuse. That's because, until this week, it was our kids' diaper bag. But neither of them has needed diapers for at least a year. So my new briefcase is an ex-diaper bag, which is a good symbol for how things are in my life.
