If Band-aids are supposed to magically help heal boo-boos, minor scrapes and cuts, why do they hurt so much when you pull them off?!?!?
Why do we hit things that don’t function the way they are supposed to? If a bag of peanut M&M’s dangles precariously in the vending machine and doesn’t drop, why do we think kicking it will help? If our computer freezes or is running slow, why do we hit the side of it and think that will make any sort of difference? We all do it!!! It does make us momentarily feel better, but sometimes it doesn’t! Sometimes, it leaves us jumping up and down on one leg or shaking our hand in pain after we hit something too hard! I guess that’s why cartoonists invented those funny cartoon stars and circling birds to depict pain.
