Blessing and a Curse

Daily Prompt: Sliced Bread

Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?

There are so many things that have followed the genius of sliced bread that it’s really hard to decide what would be worthy of the title “Best.” Considering sliced bread wasn’t invented until 1928, that takes an awful lot of my favorite inventions like refrigeration, air conditioning and the washing machine out of the running for this grand title. It appears sliced bread was actually late to the invention party.


technologyThe best invention since sliced bread award goes to the invention that has shown the most creativity and initiative in making our lives more complete, yet complex at the same time. The winner of this award created a buzz that can be heard world-wide. It has had the ability to connect, yet disconnect all of us. Its research leads to questions that can now all be answered by the mastermind…Google. This recipient has been known to cause cancers and heal them with their own advances in medicine, allowing us to live longer in front of its many other devices. Our children have been able to cross continents, without ever leaving the confines of their bedrooms. They are able to use their new-found imaginations, without ever actually having a thought of their own. Your talents enabled us to travel to space and beyond in search of life outside of our own, who we can eventually “friend” on Facebook or “follow” on Twitter. This award goes to the one who has single-handedly become a blessing and a curse in our daily lives.

Technology, please come forward and accept your Best Thing Since Sliced Bread award.

Enjoy the Ride!
