Wearing a Band-Aid When You Don’t Need To

There’s something oddly comforting about wearing a Band-Aid when you don’t need to. Try it. Take a Band-Aid and stick it on your forehead. Notice how other people treat you. Notice how they treat you better. They assume that you’re injured and they feel bad for you. They even go out of their way to help you out. They send you sympathetic stares, they ask you questions out of concern, and they make you feel special and appreciated. All that attention is completely unwarranted, but they don’t need to know that you’re faking it. An unnecessary Band-Aid can be a fashion statement. Just look at Nelly. He’s still cool right?

Peeling Off a Band-Aid

Peeling off a Band-Aid hurts more than getting hurt. You get cut, you get a Band-Aid, you apply it to the wound, you wait a couple of days, and then you try to peel it off. But the adhesive that they use is designed to latch onto your body hair and rip it out. You can take your time and slowly peel off the Band-Aid and prolong your agony, or you can pull it off with one swift motion and potentially rip off your scab, which would require another Band-Aid and you repeat the cycle. Peeling off a Band-Aid is like unwrapping a Christmas present, except you expose a festering wound instead of getting something you want.
