My father and I both have a Staples Easy Button. This morning, when I walked past and gave it a tap, nothing happened. I sort of saw this coming, because over the past couple of weeks, the response had gotten softer, and more southern. "Thaaaaaaat waaaaaaahhhssss eeaaaassssyyyyyy."
But while I was changing the batteries, I was thinking that it was sort of ridiculous that an Easy Button couldn't handle that task on its own.
And then I started wondering what else the Easy Button could do around here to pick up some slack. Diaper duty. Naptime. Dog walking. I mean, do I have to do everything?
