    Sadly, my brother and I have the gene: we both get sentimentally attached to items, even broken ones. Which may explain why I’ve had a lamp with a hot electric cord and a busted industrial fan for upwards of 10 years now. I couldn’t let them go, but I was hamstrung about how to fix them. Or who could do it.
