“Advancing age hadn’t been good for much-the wisdom overblown and the bodily breakdown undersold.” – “The Redeemers” by Ace Atkins
The subject of gadgets and gadget freaks came up recently.
Gadgets is really a misnomer. The implication is that the acquisition of a certain genre of stuff is tantamount to a disease. An evil, sinister affliction.
Hard as it may be to believe, some have actually accused me of being one of them. I know. I was shocked too.
I AM NOT A GADGET FREAK. I AM A HUMAN BEING.
Having said that, I do confess to a certain weakness. Occasionally I partake. Once in a Blue Moon. Hardly ever.
But when I do………………………what I acquire is good stuff. Important stuff.
Recently I acquired a combination Weed Wacker, Saber Saw and Automatic Viagra dispenser. You should see the look on my wife’s face when I fire that baby up.
I have a few senior gadgets. No………….tools. Tools for the elderly. Devices I need to sustain and enjoy life.
Recognize this? Blood pressure and pulse rate. As evidenced by my readings on these essential tools, I am a STUD.
