Okay, this may sound insane but today, I was doing a bit of ironing and I had a little epiphany.
When you think "advancement in technology", whose names come to mind right away? Which companies? What gadgets?
Because I realized, as our brand-spankin'-new iron was basically doing all the work for me, that the Dysons and the Maytags and the Hoovers and the Whirlpools are truly the unsung heroes of this high-tech world we live in.
Imagine what would happen if we had to trade them all in for ones that are more, I don't know, Flintstone-esque?
There'd be no time left to play with Blackberries and iPads once all the chores get done!
