I needed a Band-Aid after I burned my finger making dinner tonight. When I opened the Band-Aid it got me to thinking about how you used to open a Band-Aid by pulling on a red string. Remember that?
It appears to have been discontinued in 1993 in favor of a tear down wrapper. It felt like a perfectly reasonable way to open a Band-Aid at the time. Thinking about it now though, it seems like a really weird way to do it.
