It's our nature to take things for granted, more so when they're working so well for us that we don't have to think about them. But what a cost there is, in that: a cost in neglect and ingratitude for those very Robotic Friendship Devices that make our modern, labor-light existence possible.
Of course that's why we celebrate The Day of the Robot! each year. But still, our mechanical friends work for us every day of the year, holidays or not. So why not surprise them with an unscheduled celebration?
Take - just as an example - these stylish, comfortable mousepads. They make restful homes for our computer mice and remind them, and us, how essential a part they are of our Retropolitan lives.
It's little enough to do for these humble, helpful mechanical marvels. Isn't it?
