I have a hard time letting things go

Like this paintbrush.  That is electrical tape holding it together in two spots.  Now you may be asking why I would tape the broken-off end of the handle back on instead of throwing it away.  Well, I was convinced to not have it would affect the balance and how it felt in my hand.  Crazy?  Most likely.  Should I get a new brush? Probably.  Will I get rid of this one?  Never.  In the distant future when monkey robot clones rule the land I will retire It to my brush hall of fame.  I'm going to find a coffee can and write hall of fame on it right now.
