We talk a lot about all the things we have at home that we don’t need, and can easily get rid of without a second glance. But what about those things to which we are irrevocably attached? Let’s leave off the obvious off the list: I don’t want to revert back to the days of outhouses. Nor do I, or will I ever, take electricity for granted. I’m talking about new-ish inventions that aren’t vital in the grand scheme of life, but have nonetheless become an entrenched part of our lives. Almost like family members. Family members that I actually want to live with.
