dear tiny piece of elastic,

i wanted to take a minute to properly thank you for your services over the last year or so. you've been by my side through thick and thin...literally. you've allowed me to wear countless ponytails and messy buns, and for that, i'm forever grateful. you've held on for so long, and i don't know what i'll do when you finally snap. i have scoured packages of other tiny elastics looking for a potential replacement for you, but, let's face it, you're irreplaceable. i should probably start stretching some other back-up elastics, as i feel that you're life expectancy is getting shorter with each day. i just wanted to show my appreciation for your dutiful work and let you know that i'll always remember you as the best hair tie i ever had.

i'm eternally grateful.

yes, i have actually used the same elastic hair tie for about a year. yes, i will actually be devastated when it finally snaps.
