“The Gadget” / A Memorable Fancy #180

The newest electronic gadget showed up in the shops yesterday. Of course, with all the hype and promises, I just had to have one. So I stood in line for an hour. These tech-lines, you know, can be exciting. Everyone there seems happy (if you’re sad, you wouldn’t wait in line to buy much more than aspirin, toilet paper, or Zantac). Everyone is thinking of the fun they’ll have showing off their new gadget to their envious friends.

YES – but this new thing does – what? (Beware of embarrassing questions.) Why would I ever want to do that? (Make something up.) If all my friends did that, I guess I’d want to, too? (Doesn’t that sound reasonable?) And if the only way to do that was to buy this gadget? (I guess I’ll have to have one.)

I’m not sure what it does or how to use it, or why, but it’s light and has a VERY bright screen.
