Yes, technology’s wonderful and, for the most part, quite helpful. So far, there’ve been no discouraging messages like, “Good luck with that,” on my curling iron. Or, “It’s about time,” on my diet sodas. Well, there was that one message on a blow dryer in a public restroom that said, “And now a word from your congressman,” but that was hand-lettered by a stinker. Doesn’t count.
Otherwise, we’re back to happily heating leftovers. Little is happily popping popcorn, and we’re cheerfully avoiding our scales. And those mirrors.
