The very best sensor that ever there was
You lasted two and a half times longer than what they say you should.
Your accuracy was impeccable... maybe off by about 30 once or twice. Mostly within 10 and often bang on, much to my child's delight. "Same same!"
The adhesive that surrounded you lacked your tenacity, so we just kept adding layer after layer of tape, hoping that you would give out before we ran out of tape. No one likes to lose a perfectly good sensor to an adhesive malfunction.
No hourglasses or ??? until your final two days. Even then, you kept gasping back to life. And always on target. Every time I would think you were done, you would surprise me.
Yesterday, I let you retire with full honours. Or maybe I just threw you in the garbage, I can't quite remember. I'm hoping your replacement is going to be just like you.
Goodbye old friend. You really were the very best sensor that ever there was.
