Events on PEI lately have me thinking about bandaids. You know - we’ve all had that experience of being in a hurry, not preparing well or safely, not thinking of possible consequences - the knife slips and we cut a finger. We grab a bandaid, stem the bloody flow and chastise ourselves for being so careless.
But the thing is, more often than not, the bandaid doesn’t stick don’t you find? It gets wet and falls off, it is on an awkward joint and falls off when we use that finger, or it just isn’t good enough quality to stick.
