Friday 5 for January 1: Newness

1. What’s something that’s better when the newness has worn off? Obviously, blue jeans, shoes, gum, towels. Less obvious...marriage, parenthood, death.

2. What’s something you already own that could stand to be replaced by the newer version? My rear end.

3. What’s something that was better before someone made it “new and improved?” Ding Dongs, Twinkies, the Volkswagen.

4. Of geographic locations whose names begin with the word “new,” which seems like the most interesting place to visit? The New Apple.

5. On what date will 2010 no longer feel like the new year? Not what date -- what check number.
