&^(@*$)(@+!

There are times when I just feel that I cannot keep up. No, I’m not talking technology, I manage in that way. It’s other little things that let me know I’m out of touch. Like a recent text from my granddaughter, Elizabeth.

What does this look like to you? 

If you answered bacon on someone’s leg, then you are with me. If you responded “band-aids” then you are with it, up-to-date, cool, keeping up, so CONGRATULATIONS. 

My almost adult (she will be 21 next week) college student granddaughter had an accident recently which required a few stitches. Good Grandmother that I am I check on her frequently and good granddaughter that she is she keeps me up on how she is doing.

This morning she sent this photo with a text that read “Bacon can fix anything.” I sincerely thought she had put raw bacon on her cuts and started lecturing her on the dangers of tularemia and trichinosis. She is a Nuclear Medicine Technology student who happens to be on the Dean’s List so certainly not dumb, but regardless I was concerned. 

It seems one of her friends thought these band-aids would be fun. Apparently, it turned out she was right because Elizabeth certainly enjoyed my reaction.

When I googled “bacon band-aids” they came up in the dozens from Amazon to eBay to Walmart! Who knew?

So now I can no longer believe my eyes?

  1. My first thought was, ” did Sue fall?.” Then ” those bandaids look like bacon.”
    And yes, you are right, you cannot believe what you see, especially since Photoshop.
    Did you see the picture on my Facebook a couple of years ago with my sister and brother? We usually take a picture with our arms around each other each time we are together. One time myI visited my brother but my sister wasn’t there. We stood apart and my brother photoshopped her in the picture.
    So the adage, Seeing is believing is no longer helpful.
