Gary loves to buy technology, and I hope his interest in technology continues into his old age. I suppose the Internet will keep us up to date when there are technological advances, just like the newspaper did in the past. Think of the advances in the last fifty years. What new stuff will there be in fifty years when I will be on my last legs? And will I know it’s out there?
I'm worried about this because Band-Aid technology has advanced without me. I went out and bought a variety pack of Band-Aids, and at some point they invented a new type of Band-Aid that is easier to apply: sterile sheer Band-Aids.
You tear into the usual individual paper packaging, but instead of a Band-Aid that has the peel-off strips on either side of the pad, the Band-Aid stays stuck to one half of the paper packaging. You can then slap the Band-Aid on your arm, rub it on like a rub-on tattoo, and peel off the packaging. Fewer germs, easier to apply if one hand is bleeding, and you don't end up with the Band-Aid stuck to itself.
And see, no one told me about this. There was no CNN report on advances in Band-Aid technology. I suppose I'll have to keep a close eye on young people to see what their Band-Aids look like, and then if I stop seeing Band-Aids at all then I'll ask the pharmacist for “some of that spray-on sterile Superglue that the kids use today."
