Save the date


The practice of writing the date of either purchase or creation down upon the object. In the dresser’s case, the family who purchased it wrote the date on it once they had moved it into their home. When I asked the matriarch of the family, the one who had written the date upon the dresser, she asserted that she simply “didn’t know” why she had written the purchase date upon it – merely that she had seen other families do so and was mimicking them. As for the family that owned the bucket, they didn’t have any particular reason as to why they chose to purchase a bucket with “2010” embedded into it.
