To Quote the Rolling Stones, "Let It Bleed"
The Rolling Stones released their album Let it Bleed in December 1969. My theory is that the title was inspired by a lack of band-aids. By then, several members of the band had joined the ranks of fatherhood, and they were most likely forced to make due without that most important first aid item. Why? Young children love band-aids. Every little scratch requires at least one band-aid. Sometimes, band-aids are worn as accessories--no boo boo required! It's way too easy to run out! Large, gaping wounds gushing blood? Go to the Emergency Room. Just a minor booboo? Let it bleed, 'cause I can't get no band-aid. Seriously, if the Rolling Stones can't keep band-aids in their medicine cabinets, how can I?
