“Technology,” said Bert the other day, “will save us all. Nothing like it. Just about the time you think you’ve seen it all, they come up with new flimdiddles that make life easier and faster for us all.”

Doc looked up from his coffee. “I take it you have something specific in mind this fine day?”

“Hundreds of things,” Bert says. “You know I read that science magazine. You can’t believe what they’re working on. Someday we’ll be able to just stay home and watch television and earn a living. But the one that brought it to mind was our new dishwasher. Maizie and I found one the other day that just simplifies the whole process. They installed it yesterday and it works like a champ.”

“Dishwashers? I don’t like ‘em at all,” Dud said. “Heck, you have to wash the dishes before you put them in the machine, anyway. So I mean, why bother? You end up doing more work than if you didn’t have one in the first place.”

“Ah!” said Bert. “Just what I mean. Our last dishwasher was like that, but this one does that all in one step. You don’t even need to rinse ‘em off. Just stick ‘em in there and turn the thing on. Kinda pricey, but worth it.”

“Our dishwasher has done that for years now,” Doc said. “Nothing new there. You don’t need to rinse ‘em first, and they come out sparkling clean every time.”

“No kidding, Doc? What’s the name of it?”

“Why, it’s the Doc-O-Matic,” he said, grinning. “It’s worked well every day now since 1952. All you need is a sink.”
